Knowing full well that the lift capacity of my tractor is 680 lbs I purchased a seeder that will weigh in at 690lbs well the little guy won't pick it up more than prox 3 inches this will work ok but I guess I though there would be some fudge factor here. So my question is has anyone lifted more than rated or is my tractor perhaps not producing rated lift? I might add that my Kubota bx would have picked this up no problem.

Welcome to GTT!

What seeder did you get that is 690lbs?

The lift specs is at 24" behind the 3PH balls: Lift Capacity (24-in. behind link arms), lb. (kg)681 (309) so if the majority of the weight is further than that you can have problems. You could always ask the dealer to perform a pressure test of the hydraulic system to be sure it's up to spec also.

Ya it is further back than that but if I put a manual lift of about 50 lbs up she comes.

It is a str48 woods seeder. I was just curious to see if others had stretched a bit I will get it to work one way or the other its a great tool.

Where is the relief ball on the 1026r? I have the workshop manual on order but have not received it yet.

:thumbup1gif: Well I have solve my problem of lifting the 690 lb. woods seeder. Heres the scoop easy to do.
Remove lower lift arms and drill a 3/4 hole exactly 2 inches rearward of the current hole
By giving the lift arm just a little more leverage up she comes with me standing on the seeder and I weight 195 lbs
I also had to change the length of the sway links just a little short after moving the lift arms.

amazing what 2 inches will do for you

Went out and used the seeder as an aerator and boy is it sweet scuffs up the soil just perfect.

Hi,

I know this is an old thread, but could you elaborate a bit more or perhaps post a pic of what you did please? I have the 1023e with the h120.
Which part exactly is the lower lift arm, I couldn't find a specific diagram from JD to know what part is exactly labeled as what to know where you made the mod.

thanks

Rich

Rich If you look at Rc's 2nd pic it shows where the old hole is, he just went a couple inches further out to gain leverage. Click to enlarge and it comes in pretty clear. That looks like the only mod done.

I will say no, not safely. 450kg is 992 pounds, well over the rated from JD.

Interesting.... Just one thought here, by moving the lifting rod out 2"s, will this mod alter the range of motion? Upwards or Downwards?
