Can anyone tell me if these brackets are installed incorrectly. I can't attach my 647 to the iMatch Quick-Hitch. I think I can adjust the Quick Hitch, but then none of my other attachments will fit. I think brackets on the bottom where the pins are located are installed upside down. Can someone send me a picture of theirs on the Quick Hitch?

Thanks for your help.

I don't have the 647 tiller but I think the brackets are upside down on yours. If you you remove the u bolt holding them on, flip them over, you should have better luck.

No tiller here either, but a quick google search of "647 tiller pics" found this, your brackets appear to be installed incorrectly:

I think they are designed to go either way. For the X7 series its probably better to be in the lower position due to the limited lift height of the cat. 1 limited hitch.

Like several others have said...upside down. If I remember correctly, mine needed to be flipped too.

You might want to contact your dealer and check which position is best for your cat. 1 limited hitch. You can make that top hook quickly adjustable by removing the bolts and using hitch pins in their place.

My 647 tiller came with the brackets in the lower position:

I called the dealer and they are coming out Thursday to figure out and fix the problem. I will update the post then.

Thanks

This evening I met the Salesman from the dealership and he flipped the brackets on the tiller. We were then able to attach it to the 3 point. However I also mentioned that there was oil leaking from the gear box. He attempted to take out the oil plug to check the oil level and snapped the threaded part right off. :banghead: He believes it was already broken part way and he just managed to break it off the rest of the way. Ugh, oil all over the place. We loaded the tiller into the back of his pickup and its going in for warranty work. I have never even used it and its already in the shop for repair.

Oddly enough he looked at the label on the tiller and then commented "The Italians should have done a better job at the factory." Apparently that until was manufactured in Italy. I thought JD was mostly American made.

Thanks everyone for the help. We fixed one problem and now on to the next one.

JD sources parts and equipment from all over the world, it's a "global company" blah blah blah :laugh:

But seriously the Italian made tillers and gearbox's are considered top of the line, most likely it's made by this company: Production Sites

So today I stopped by the dealership. I talked to the mechanic and he was not very happy with my tiller. They replaced the cover to the gear box and the cap. It sat overnight and guess what, another oil leak. They ordered parts again and hopefully it will be ready next week. Has anyone had the same kind of problems with oil leaks on the their tiller?

good 647 tiller

Mine came with a dent in the rear door, but it worked fine for 5+hrs without a problem. I inspected it before and after that first job. No problems,at all. The dealer came and fitted a new door the next day -warranty/no fee.
