This is probably a dumb question, but I'm not a tractor guy! When I move the rock shaft lever to lower my MMM, the 3 pt on the rear moves first, then the mower. Same with raising, the 3 pt first , then the mower. So if I lower the mower to cut grass, and pull the lever up, the hitch should come up, but is their a easier way to just lower the mower itself? I don't want to drag my hitch is what I'm getting at. I have read my manual, but it's really vague on some things, like tire pressure, and controls. It is good for maintenance though. Thanks for any help, I told you this was a dumb question!
