Hi

I own a rotary cutter rc2048 from frontier that has not been used yet.
When I look at this video, I see the top link is mounted with a pivot to allow the implement to move freely.

I dont have that... i have a direct solid top link.
Should I consider this kind of pivot?

Thanks

You pretty much need some type of loose link for the top connection on a brush hog. Then enables the rear of the mower to move up and down freely.

Mine (Bush Hog) uses a chain for the top link connection.

Hate to drag this up again but I'm having a hard time finding the part I Need.


JD 955
Quick Hitch
Woods Brush Hog.

So my mower has the hinged /swing piece at the top.
My land is nowhere near flat so this hinge is a MUST have.

Somewhere I saw an Adapter part that will allow the mower to raise ( like driving through a ditch)
without binding WHILE useing a quick Hitch.
Its a bit of a pain to have to remove Q Hitch just to use Mower.

I tried the search box and got nowhere...youtube..same story...I've seen this part and would like to see it in action if
someone can post a link to the part and perhaps a video.

That looks like the part I've seen in the past.
I'm quite mechanical but yet this still makes no sense to me.

Thank you Dave

Thanks again
