Yep you are so right , much easier ,quicker, and cheaper to fix the hook. For me I only had the rear blade to change.The real fix, that would allow this to work with both standard and non-standard, would be to design enough travel in the iMatch hook to actually reach the normal top link pin. Is there a different hook out there on the market? Modifying the iMatch hook would be much easier than modifying the box blade, tiller, other box blade, angle blade, finish mower, bush hog, and bale spike.
Function is usually far more important than fashion or being "fashionable", except in women's clothing and then all bets are off. :laugh:I know you guys will laugh at me but a quick easy dirty fix that I am not really proud of but it worked. Can be cut free very easily.
I have these moments. :laugh:No, not dreaming. I posted my thoughts and then looked at his picture again and realized I didn't know what I was talking about.(as usual):unknown:
To me it looks like the second bolt behind the top link hook pivots allowing the back to move up and down while not binding the top link. The support running to the back of the mower looks to be a bit long given the angle of the quick hitch, but I'm sure there's a reason why.I have these moments. :laugh:
Now I'll prove it. On a finish mower like the one pictured, do you even want to hook up the top link? Some I've seen have a link for the top link that moves up and down so the mower moves with the terrain. :unknown:
