Thought I should do a follow up post, as Kenny was cool enough to send me out a "blem" right away. It was in my mailbox yesterday. He had to have shipped it the same day I paid for it.
Boom. As always, well packaged:
This makes it a "blem"...?! Wow. That's covered by the bolts. Thanks for the discount...!!
This pic is the stock hook on my imatch:
You can clearly see in the above photo, where implements have been hitting/rubbing on the imatch. Plenty of times, I've had to get off the tractor, & manually manipulate things for the implement to seat properly into the hitch. Huge PITA in my opinion, & kinda defeats the purpose of the imatch somewhat.
This next pic shows the difference once Ken's hook is installed. Which took less than 5 minutes I might add....
Now to hook up some implements & see the difference. These next couple pics are picking up a Frontier 6' scraper blade which I use a little bit. Again, you can see where it's scraped up at the connect point...
Pretty good fit. Was the most effortless hook up I've done. Here's another angle.
After trying the blade, I picked up the 6' box blade. Wow. Again, the most effortless hook up I've done with it. The box blade has actually been the most difficult of my implements to hook up previously. It would hit on the nuts/bolts of the hook, & cause grief. I almost always had to dismount, & manually manipulate it, to get it to seat properly. Not anymore.
I wish I would've bought one of these sooner. It is now possible to hook up implements without leaving the seat at all. I've never really been able to do that. Ever. Not with this tractor, or the one I had previously.
Thanks again @Kennyd
. Really. Not just for the outstanding service you always deliver but, for coming up with a great solution to this problem. I couldn't be happier.
