My son recently purchased a Mitsubishi D1600. He didn't get any manuals with it and we can't find any information on implements. We purchased a brush hog but it won't fit...any suggestions would be appreciated!

A manual is important, but not in this case. Rear hitches have been standardized for decades, so all rear attachments fit all tractors in the same category. There are four sizes or categories of hitches. All you need to know is that yours (I'm pretty sure) is a Category 1, which is what the mower needs to be (though in some cases you can get adaptors to use a different category). There are always some adjustments to be made on the hitch for each attachment, and often, with mowers, on the PTO shaft too. Hope that helps a bit. ....

Vbuchanan,

If you could tell us the model number of the mower, we might be able to help you identify the problem you're having.

A category I hitch is found on tractors from 15 to 45 horsepower. If the lower hitch pins on the mower are 7/8" in diameter, you have a category 1 hitch (Cat1). The upper link arm should have a pin diameter of 3/4".

A category II hitch uses a 1" top link pin, and lift arm pins (lower left and right) that are 1-1/8" in diameter. The CatII hitch is found on tractors from 50 to about 90 horsepower.

Category III hitches are found on larger tractors in the neighborhood of 90 horsepower and higher. These use upper link pins of 1-1/4" and lower lift arm pins sized 1-7/16" in diameter.

Vbuchanan,

I forgot to list the Category 0 hitch dimensions.

The Cat0 hitch uses 5/8" diameter pins at all 3 lift points.

I'm not sure of the mower number. It was a King Kutter, 4' brush hog. In looking around it appears that it is a 20 hp tractor and can use a "subcompact" brush hog (what Tractor Supply told me).... ....

Vbuchanan,

OK....we're getting closer to solving this problem.

Either your tractor or your mower is set up with a "category 0" subcompact hitch.

If the connecting pins on the mower are smaller in diameter than the holes in your lift arms, then your tractor has a Category 1 hitch, and the mower has Cat0 pins installed on it.

If the above sounds right to you, you can simply change the pins on the mower. Your local Tractor Supply store likely carries the pins you need.

Subcompact tractors are usually set up with a Cat0 hitch. Implements designed for use with subcompact tractors usually have the smaller pins installed on them.

I'm still not sure what you mean by "it won't fit". The Power Take Off (PTO) shaft may also be too long for your tractor. There are instructions included with the mower describing how to shorten the PTO shaft.

If you don't have the tools to do this, it's best to take it to someone who can do the work for you. Follow the instructions, then mark the PTO shaft for the proper length. Cutting the shaft to length is simple enough. It can be done with a hacksaw, or a Sawzall. Be careful not to cut the safety shield too short. It has to be cut longer than the shaft.

Determining the proper length of the PTO shaft is critical. Too short.....the PTO shaft falls apart during operation, destroying equipment and possibly causing serious injury, or death to the operator.

Too long.....the implement's full weight will be supported by the PTO shaft as it is either raised or lowered, causing serious damage to the gearbox, at a minimum.

If we can help, please give us a shout.

Joel

Thanks for all of your advice!! I'm not sure I understand a lot of this, but based on my limited knowledge the arms (not sure what to call them) were too widely spaced to go on (although I've since been told that the pins could be reversed to make it fit). We were told by a tractor place that the tractor couldn't "handle" the brush hog.

Again - many thanks!! Va. ....

Vbuchanan,

OK....your mower is set up with a Cat1 hitch. The pins are spaced too far apart for use on your tractor, because your tractor has a Category0 3-point hitch.

Your dealer is correct. You can simply turn the pins around on the mower, so that they point in toward each other. This will decrease the span between the pins, allowing a Cat0 tractor to attach to your mower.

Your tractor will handle the 4 foot mower just fine. You may have to travel quite slow in the heavier brush, but your tractor will handle it.

However, you may find that the front end of the tractor will be very light and difficult to steer with that mower hanging off the rear. You may need to hang some heavy weights on the front bumper of your tractor, in order to keep the front end down. If you have a loader for your tractor, keep the loader on while using the mower. The loader is heavy enough to keep the front end in firm contact with the ground.

Joel ....

Hi!

My Mitsu D1600 II has very good tires, a new clutch, a recently serviced starter, exhaust routed under foot rest, sheet metal somewhat rusty but sound, custom made debris screen in front of radiator, custom SS grill plate in front. Lift works well. One stabilizer has been replaced by a heavy chain, which works fine.

This is a strong tractor, always does what I want it to.

It needs a starter solenoid now, and I have been unable to find one, so I am forced to sell it as is, or part it out.

Need any parts? Let me know!

thanks.

~Mark ....
