 Cat 1 Lift Arm Pins

I have a 3pt Loftness snowblower that I acquired for my JD 4310 at the end of the snow season. Its a bit heavy at 925 lbs and I noticed that the cat 1 lift arm pins are bent on the attachment. Any recommendations for what cat 1 lift arm pins to purchase that will not bend under the weight?

 Cat 1 Lift Arm Pins

Crunch,

It's highly unlikely that those pins got bent from simply lifting the blower with the 3-point hitch. Most likely the pins bent when ramming the blower into a snow pile, or a very hard drift.

Standard lift pins will work just fine as replacements. I purchase mine at TSC. I've never had a problem with them.

Hope this helps.

Joel

 Cat 1 Lift Arm Pins

A few years ago bought a rear blade rated for like 60 or more horse power. It came with cat one pins. Had to replace them all the time, not the weight of the blade (sure less than your blower) but as Joel said with hitting stuff. Bought pins from NAPA and lowest price source and all others. Talked with a client who had decent metal shop on making me pins and he told me wasting time. Needs cat two pins. Went back to retailer of blade and they looked and agreed with me and went back to manufacturer, who furnished the parts to change to CAT 2 pins. No more bent pins.

I learned all lift pins seem to be same grade and think they sold the blade rated for horse power they did not want it rated at so limited it with CAT one pins. I have forgotten now but those pins are equal to either Class 5 or 8 bolts. Class 8 is a strong as I am aware of with such. kt

Thanks KT, how did you convert a cat 1 3pt hitch to cat 2? Do you have 2 different 3pt hitches for your tractor? Ahhh, let me guess - the tractor had a cat 2 3pt hitch on it already?
