The other day I used the turn buckles to tighten my 3 point hitch. It was rattling around, side to side, and was buggin me. So now it is nice and tight, no more rattles. If the day comes that I attach a mower, etc. to it do you still keep it tight or do you loosen it and allow some play in it?

Thanks,
Dave

I wouldn't run it tight. I tighten mine up to the point where I have about 1/2" sway. Not enough to be annoying but enough to prevent things from binding up.

Is it OK to have it tight if there is nothing on it?
If you are raising and lowering the 3PH it is recommended to adjust for just a wee bit of side-to-side movement to prevent binding.

I leave it a little loose but when I put the stump grinder on you want it has tight has can be. I tried the stump grinder with it a hair loose and it bounced me and the tractor from side to side.
