 How to attach 3PH implements

Hi,

I got my new Kubota B7610 and I love it.

I got the Woods RB72 grader blade and I had the dealer show me how ro remove it in my concrete floor garage. So you guessed it! I am having a heck of time figuring out how to put it back on.

I saw how you spread the lower control arms. Is there a way for me to get the lower control arms to be able to be moved up and down more. I can only move them an inch or so.

If I back up with the arms under the implement attachment point I cannot lift the arms up enough to attach.

If I back up with lower arms above the implement and then lower it on the implements cross bar I cannot move them at all.

What am I doing wrong, my owners manual does not give me anything specific to do. Please help this tractor newbie.

Is the blade sitting on a kick stand or a box or something?

Or is it tipped forward on the floor?

 How to attach 3PH implements

Other's may dis me for this, but what I've done sometimes is to have the lower arms raised above the implement, then I back up so they are above the pins on the implement. I then lower them so they rest on the implement pins. I can then pull them to the end of the implement pin where they will drop and I can slide them on.

I've wondered about the easy connect systems. There are times whan I just can't seem to get the arms installed. It's not a big deal on a 150-200 lb blade, but a 500 lb box blade is not easy to shove by yourself.

Call the dealer back and tell him/ or her, you'd like to buy a quick coupler for your new tractor. They're a couple hundred bucks, they'll know what you want and your back and your nerves will heal quickly. I'm somewhat physically challenged, so I really can't muscle three pt. impliments around much any more, so I really enjoy having the ability to back up lift the three pt. and the impliment is mounted. it'll be the best money you've spent in a while. Best of luck. Frank.

Does Kubota make extendable links like JD? That has been a big help to me.

They do but you have to go to the B2910 to get them, I think one of the guys with B7800 retro fitted the B2910 ratchet lower arms to his B7800.

 How to attach 3PH implements

I have NH TC33D with the extendable lower arms---it (was) a hassle. I'm a contractor with 5 implements that I need to change-out on a job. I was wasting about an hour each day switching implements the old way. My remedy: I designed and built 5 dedicated "quick attach plates" similar to a quick-attach for a skid steer loader, which are permanently welded to the tool. The mating quick-attach carrying/mounting plate is mounted to the 3pt hitch on the tractor. A custom hydraulic top link complements the system. To pick-up-and-go all I do is lower the hitch, tilt the top link backward, line up the tractor and back up. Then, raise the hitch while tilting the top link forward, and from the seat throw two DeStaco over-center latches. The mounting plate has an opening for those tools with PTO shafts. Works great, saves time and aggravation. Have about $1000 spread over 5 pieces (brushhog, power rake, box scraper, power angle landscape rake, combination boom pole with trailer hitch).

I got a Speeco quick hitch, cost about $160. It fits most of my stuff, the finish mower needed some fiddling with to get it to fit. The longest it takes me to hook something up at most is 10 minutes and only if it needs to be adjusted, but most times its 5 mintues off with one and one with the other including the PTO hookup, and away I go. I got tired of all eh fiddling with getting the arms centerd and such whenever I needed to change attachments and find that the quickhitch works wonders. If you do get one, you will find it comes with one set of bushings, and additional sets are expensive and hard to find, so I just get cat 1-2 bushings and cat 2-3 bushings and stick one over the other and keep them in place with lynch pins. I have also found it adds just the right amount of weight for when I use my tank sprayer. It is on a 2 wheel cart and when I first used it, it would tip back and drag the back end on the ground when connected to the 3pt drawbar. Now it stays level and the drawbar takes 5 seconds to attach. I just slap it into place, dont even need to raise the levers on the quick hitch.
