 B8200 3pt Lift failure

Hi folks, I have noticed over the last 6 months that I have had to pull the 3pt Lift lever back further and further before the linkage will start to lift my mower on the back. Today I pulled the lever right back to the top of the slot in the housing and the linkage did not even start to move. I removed the housing and tested moving the lever further back and yes the linkage lifted up fine. Has some slippage occurred internally somewhere? I see that one nut holds the lifting lever onto the shaft which rotates into the hydraulic system. I removed this nut but the lifting lever would not slide off the shaft(should it slide off?). Secondly I see there is an adjustable shaft which links the right hand side (from the rear) lifting arm through to a lever mounted on the hydraulic system just under where the lifting lever shaft is. This lever is all bent out of shape - could this be causing my 3pt lift failure problems and if not what is it for (does it matter it is bent out of shape)? Thanks for your help as I dont have any owners manual..Craig in NZ

 B8200 3pt Lift failure

If the deck on your 8200 lifts like mine did, you have a piece that fits over the left lower three point arm. This piece is connected to the lift mechanism bolted to the tractor frame by a rod. When I bought mine, both the lift mechanism and the piece that fits onto the lower three point arm were bent. I replaced these two pieces and adjusted the lift lever return adjustment properly and the lift worked as it should. Apparently it was not adjusted correctly before I got it and quite a bit of stress were put on these pieces from the lift pressure. I know for a fact that it is not hard to bend the heck out of the piece that goes onto the lower lift arm. There is also a correct length that the rod should be as recommended in the manual. If you don't yet have the tractor and deck operator manuals, I would highly recommend them. They sure come in handy. Hope this helps.

Craig, we had that same problem with a bunch of our L series units about 5 years ago. Suddenly the nut would back off or the fiber washer would compress or something and it would allow the control lever to move without actuating the hydraulics.

All we did was temporarily tighten the nut back up, move the lever till the 3pth reached it's upper limit, then back off the bolt, re-position the lever into the 'full up' position, then retighten the nuts.

The L series had two nuts which tightened into each other to act as a lock. Vibration defeated this regularly. We used a little Lock-Tite and it never happened again.

Best of luck.
