 Hydraulic Top Link

Just thought I would pass along an item which has made life so much easier for me this spring. We were converting about 10 total acres of brome grass into food plots and other habitat for pheasants. I purchased a 7 1/2 foot King Kutter box frame disc unit which weighs close to 900 lbs. We got the notched blades to help cut into the sod. What we found was that brome sod is much tougher than we thought. We could hardly penitrate the ground.

I ordered a hydraulic top link from CMC Inc.. I got the unit that has cat 1 at the implement and cat 1&2 at the tractor end. My 4710 already had a pair of hyraulic outlets in the rear so hook up was a snap.

I lowered the disc down into the sod and fully extended the hyrdaulic link and it dug into the ground like it was going into butter. I did have to use 4 wheel drive as the setup has the ability to lift the back wheels slightly off the ground (I have 400 lbs of wheel weights as well). I was sceptical about getting this at first but now I would not be without it. I can't wait to see how much easier back blading will be with this unit.

Wish everything I bought to make things easier worked this well.

I made one a few years ago and wouldn't know how to live without it. It's turns a lowly box scraper into a full- fledged landscaping and grading tool.
