Have a 2018 Gen 2 2025R. Its equiped with a I-Match quick hitch. I have used a Frontier RC2060 rotary cutter and ballast box on the 3 point with no problems this past 3 months. I have recently aquired a Frontier GM1060 rear finish mower. Using that RFM the other day I would get a occasional chattering noise which I concluded was my right 3 point side sway adjuster is hitting the edge of the tread on the right rear tire. So I need to adjust my 3 point. Also when lifted RFM is not level. I am going to park machine in drive way which is fairly flat. Unhook RFM and leave I-Match on 3 point. Then adjust the lower lift arms for level from side to side. Then adjust side sway links to remove almost all side to side movement but leave a small amount.
So my question is if doing this with the I-Match should I be good to go with other attachments without having to readjust? I would think so but asking for input from those way more experienced with a 3 point machine than I am. Thanks in advance!

Yes, if you are using an iMATCH then once adjusted it will work for all of you iMATCH compatible implements as the hitch points don't change. The right side lift link is adjustable on the 3 point so that you can angle certain implements such as a back blade or box blade, adjust to level with that and you should be good to go with your mowers.

Part #18 is your adjustable link.

Depending on which implement you hook up to you might have to readjust the center link to make it level. Between my tiller and disc the center link isn't adjusted the same.

While doing trim work today with the GT275 I found a good size retaining pin laying in the grass where I had been using the 2025R with the RFM. I thought that probably explains why the RFM was not raising anywhere close to level. Sure enough the left 3 point trailing arm was off its attaching pin and resting on the draw bar. No wonder it was not raising level. Put it back on its pin and backed tractor into garage. Adjusted the lift link to the point it is level side to side all the way up and all the way down. Then adjusted the side sway turnbuckles so I have at most a inch either way from center. Hooked the RFM back up and everything looks good. Point taken on adjusting the top link for front to back level. Thanks for the help!
