 John Deere 2520 3 point problem

I have a problem with attachments. It seems that they do not go low enought on the 3 point hitch. Does anybody have a simular problem?

Are you using the correct sized implement? Sometimes you can't use a Category 0 on something that needs a 1 or 2, and vice versa.

JDjerry; The 2520's are a 60 hp. tractor produced both in a rowcrop and a hi-crop version. It likely came with a category two three point hitch which should work properly with category two impliments. Several things can be wrong, As EW said perhaps you are using thje wrong category implinents for your cat. two tractor. Something in an adjustment of the three point arms, or the linkage to the three point hitch hydraulic control may be keeping the hitch from fully lowering. Or there is an outside chance that your 2520 is a hi-crop verion that holds the hitch in a higher positiion than a row crop versioin. Tell us more. Frank.

Hardwood, John Deere is using the 2520 over again. The current model 2520 is a subcompact with a limited category I hitch. I am not sure which version jdjerry has, But I assume it's the subcompact version. Either way, my guess is a linkage adjustment problem.

Yes, I have the 2520 subcompact model. I know that when I install the rear blade, it won't even touch the ground in the full down position. Could it be that the linkage is wrong. Everything is just the way I received it when I purchased it brand new from the dealer.

Wow! And the problem shows up with the rear blade?

That is the one implement that usually cannot be raised high enough, not the other way around.

I suspect your hitch is not properly assembled. Have a look at the owners manual. See if the pictures match the way the hitch is put together.

Sorry, I took it for granted that the 2520 was the old series. I'm not familliar with the new 2520, but being a subcompact it likely has a category "0" three point hitch. I've never dealt with a category "0". Frank.

I am with Hardwood on Cat "0" experience but seems you either have linkage not adjusted correctly, something preventing your lift lever or arms from fully lowering such as even a stick, or using wrong attachement points on the blade. If the lift works fine with everthing else, is it possible there is something amiss with the blade such as it is bent? kt

JD.....check right in front of the seat is a knob you can turn to raise and lower the 3pt fast or slow or close. I would say that you just need to turn the knob and it should lower just fine. Now i got the easy to use imatch system on the back and just back up and pickup without getting off the thing.

The newer 2520 are actually compacts, not sub-compacts.
And its either your adjustment knob is all the way closed - or your 3pt is correctly set up

if you post a picture, we can set you straight
