 3PH attachment easy or tough?

There was a time on TP when there was alot of talk about quick attach hitches and the premium telescoping hitches that are on some premium tractors.

Well all that talk has seemed to die down quite a bit. In my own case I have been putting things on and off for a long time so easily that I was starting to wonder why anyone would even think of buying something to make it easier than it already was.

Anyway, a couple of days ago I was putting on my grader blade in my garage, concrete floor, where I have the same piano dollies under the blade like I have in the past so I can roll it around...... Well I was having a time of it, I even got out the wd40 which I am sure was a waste. Must have taken me a half hour to finally get the pins in. Still at a loss as to what made all those other times a snap and this one a pain.

Dennis

One little thing you usually do that you forgot to do?
Last time you used the blade, maybe the 3pt frame got tweaked??

dsg,

One thing that was different is that I had dropped the blade with the blade swung around in the reversed position whereas I never do it that way, also might have used a different hole on the supporting stand, hope that was it, because it sure was a struggle and a nuisance.

Since that 7610 has a Cat 1 hitch, I recommend you check into Pat's Easy Change hitch. If this was discussed previously, forgive me. But I've got a Cat2 set on my KM454, and plan to buy a Cat1 set for my new TS354C. Wouldn't be without them. Matter of fact, I think they've paid for themselves already in the number of mashed fingers that didn't happen.

I don't represent these folks in any way, but I sure do like what I bought. You can get some visuals from the manufacturer's website. They're made right here in Kentucky. See http://www.greenwellmfg.com/

Makes me happy I sprung TnT and quick hitch and went through the hassle of making sure all the implements work with it. It's never a problem hooking something up, even on hills and uneven ground. Don't even need to get off the seat except to hook up the pto on the rotary cutter.

Dennis,

I think the problem you encountered is called Murphy's Law. Wink yeah right Seems like when ever you think you have a procedure down pat or are in a big hurry, Murphy's Law dictates that something will go wrong. Happens to me all the time. No offense Murf! Smile

Dennis, forgive my question if the answer is yes, did you have the stablizers loose? From experience, a pain. I have found not using any stand with my 3 pth blade the best option as it balances backwards very good. It takes nothing to pull it back frontwards to the lift arms. Now, it you let it drop to the ground, different matter. Not good if children are around that could pull it down on themselves.

Chief, no worries buddy, believe me, I know ALL about that law!!! Smile

Dennis, one trick we found made a real difference with things like rear blades, was to replace the support stand with a wind down trailer jack, if you watch the sales at place like Northern or your local parts places, they often have them on for next to nothing. The inifinite range of adjustment makes a huge difference, especially if the machine or blade is not level. Hitch one pin, then wind it up or down till the other pin lines up! No lifting or kicking required!

Best of luck.

I have always blocked up my implements into position before I take them off of the 3 pt. hitch or at least try to duplicate that position by blocking the implement up so that the next time I come back to use it, the implement is pretty well in position to make the hook up. I also release the sway braces to allow full swing of each rockshaft arm which give me the max. manueverability. As mentioned above, this may not be the safest think to do if you have young children around who might play on or around the stored implements. Mine stay out in the barn which is well away from the house. The only implement I am not able to do this with is my pto spreader. Fortunately it is light enough to man handle but is still a pain in the butt because it is so bulky. Just be careful and watch those fingers and toes! Only takes a fraction of a second to take your eye off something and an injury can happen.
