 Limited cat 1 3PH

I just receintly purchased a JD2210. w/FEL and 62" MMM. This machine has a 'limited' Cat/1 3PH. What is the limit in limited? Will I be able use Cat 1 attachments ie. a 5' rear scrape or will implements have to be specifically designated Limited Cat 1.

I think the use of the word "limited" refers to the fact that the standards for a Cat. 1 (and all others) are defined by the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) people.

I believe those standards include a minimum lift capability, and not just width, height, etc.

Since this machine has only 700 pounds lift capability it might not meet the minimum SAE spec. for such, and so they say it is a 'limited' Cat. 1 3pth.

I can't believe the dimensions would not be standard Category 1 though.

Best of luck.

Murf I believe it is in the fact taht to buy a Cat 1-2 piece it will not fit! You need catagory 1 only and specifically and it is more with the pin locations. These machines do have limited stroke but that is not a problem with box scrapers and blades or mowers as it is with post hole augers.

 Limited cat 1 3PH

Just got my JD2210 yesterday. Nice machine. My first tractor so I have to steep learning curve to navigate.

I purchased a FEL, Box Blade, Box Cutter and 54" MMM. Seems like a nice package. My only concern so far is that I can't seem to lower the box cutter on the rear 3 point hitch without also lowering the MMM. I am dragging the belly mower through the brush before wacking it down. Am I missing something or will I have to take the mower off since I can't seem to raise it up independently of the rear hitch?

Regardless, man!!! I am sure having fun!!!

I once measured the hitches on my BX22 and my JD4100 side by side trying to figure out what made the hitch on the BX "limited".

The only significant difference as I recall, was the actual lift arms on the BX were shorter. The link is below.

On your 2210, last time I eyeballed one it looked to me as if the lift arms were fully as long as those on my 4115.

If that impression is correct I would not call your hitch limited and it should handle anything the 4010 and 4110 can handle, including a selected PHD.

unless you set it up with independent lift for the deck you won't be able to change that.

The mounting/lifting mechanism on some MMM allows them to be pinned in the full up position and then the 3pth can be lowered without lowering the MMM as well.

Best of luck.

Mudpie, If you rise the MMM deck up and set the cut height at he 5”-5.5” (or lock) position, the deck will stay up when you lower the 3PH. Even though, I still usually remove the MMM when using the box blade, because of the difference in width, 62” MMM verses 48” box blade. What you can’t do is lower the MMM without lowering the attachement on the 3PH.

Thanks for the tip Scooter, I had visions of beating the deck all to heck. I just got through removing the LX4 Cutter and putting on the Frontier Box. Removing the cutter was a challenge. The John Deere manuals don't seem to connect all the dots for us mechanically challenged types. At some point I'll have to learn to remove the MMM and FEL but I'm having too much fun sitting in the seat right now.
