Would anyone here know off hand the distance between the liftarms and the usual distance in height from the horizontal between the lift arms and the top link? Kinda like the add just to the right of this screen (flex points)?
Thanks

I think that distance is part of the standard hitch definitions. It's here in the archives somewhere. I think Mark may have dug it up. I believe it's a fairly important measure because some implement top-link heights are built assuming a standard 3ph height. A different height and an implement may not keep as constant a level as the 3ph goes up and down.

I believe the dimensions are as follows if I understand which you are looking for:

Cat 1 Hitch
26" between lift arms
20" from lift arms at level to the center of the top link

Cat 0 Hitch
20" between lift arms
16" from lift arms at level to the center of the top link

Again, just from memory, I think it is 14" from the end of the pto shaft to the center of the lift arms.

It seems there IS no standard for Cat-1 top link heights. It seems they range from 15 inches for I-Match compatible implements up to 20" or so.

Here ya go. Go to tractorsmart, click on Technical Info, click on Tractor Three Point Lift Types, and scroll to the bottom of the page. It says that the Cat-1 vertical height is 18", which seems to be a sort of standard, but in practice that dimension varies widely.

Ken is right..... but 20 inches is too much for my new top and tilt. That is asking for a bent top link. 15 inches works just about right.

The actual spacing on my 4115 is 14.75 inches.

The standard is not to have a standard.

Out of the four implements I have only one that has a vertical height of 18". That one is a JD 616 rotary cutter. That's even changed now, with the invent of the I-Match.

20" is too much for my top-and-tilt too. 18" is about the max it can handle.

I just remeasured..... it was an 18 inch span that bent my top link. I have reduced it to 14 inches.

I gotta remember not to trust memory like I used to. It's the second thing that goes, right.

But top link vertical spacings do vary a lot, depending on the size of the machine. It will effect how the inplements levels without changing top link length.
