Installed the Load’n’Go today. But when I connect to the FEL the starboard pin doesn’t connect. It aligned horizontally, but it is like the pin is too close to the hook.
That will probably do it. They all have some slop in the alignment/holes. Those parts are all welded on a jig so I can't imagine them being far enough off to not align....unless there is some form of manufacturing complication.Try loosening the bolts on the load n go brackets and then connect it to the loader and see if the pins align better and then retighten the bolts.
I appreciate the guidance. This method ended up working and although the grease fitting isn't completely centered with the bracket hole, I am still able to get a grease coupler on the fitting.
Roy - Did this work for you. Absolutely pulled my hair out today and have the same issue. Have to say given the timing of yours and mine, I wonder if there is a bad batch or shoddy QC going on. No other implement I have does this. Thanks for your time.
Thanks. Just so I have it right, you put the deck on the ground off of the mower. Loosened the hello brackets on the left and right until you could move them by hand slightly. Then lift and tilt back onto the pins with the tractor. Tighten the bolts you can get to. Then lower the mower back down off the tractor, and tighten the rest of the bolts you couldn’t get to with the mower lifted. Is that about right? Thanks again!So far it’s worked perfectly both times. After adjusting it the first time it worked great, until it was time to grease the spindles, so did it again, making sure the grease fitting was accessible.
I agree. I have pallet forks, brush crusher, and the bucket, and all work flawlessly. I am very confident at this point it's not me lol. Very frustrating though.I'm surprised that with the weight of the mower deck you're still having problems getting the deck off.
I have tight pins on both my HLA pallet forks and HLA snow pusher but they separate when I set them on the ground without the need to kick them.
