5103 Three Point Hitch Problem...

8634 Views 14 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Yellow Jacket

Have a 2008 (5103) 3150 I just got. Learning the ropes.

Previous owner had about 500lbs of concrete block on the very back of a disc harrow.

Three Point would not raise.

Took blocks off, and it would raise, but with a good bit of throttle.

Raise rocker arms all the way up and turn off engine, and the arms go back down.

Any ideas on what to look for?

Thank you!

I changed the title of the thread to reflect the correct tractor and moved it to the correct forum. This will help you to get the info you need!
Well, maybe this won't stump the crowd - it is not normal for the rocker arms (raised) to drop when the engine is turned off is it?
If you have soemthing heavy on the back, it might fall in a matter of a half day or a week. With nothing on the back, they should not drop.
