 JD4100 Mower deck lift arm lock kit

Some time back there was a message on this board where someone mentioned an option for the 4100 that allowed the mower deck lift arms to remain in the raised position while using the 3pt. Does anyone know what this add on is called and how much it costs? It seems like a good idea to me because every time I use a 3pt implement in the lowered position the mower deck arms drag in the dirt. Thanks.

The kit is called a mower lockout/latch kit and I believe that it runs some where between $60-$70.

Thanks MW for the speedy reply. I'll pick one up next time I am near a JD dealership.

The Lift Latch Kit for 4100s has part number BM19507. It most likely will have to be ordered. Not a stock item. Works great.

Thanks Jack in Il. I will keep the part number handy just in case the dealer has another brain fart like he did with the air filter mess. If you are still watching the JD4100 smoke issue, I hope to have an answer to the glowplug question by tomorrow or the next day.

I forget now who it was that suggested this to me, but instead of the lift kit, I just use a couple of turnbuckles and carabiners from the link arms to the holes in the frame (above where the linkarms ride on the 3pth) and it works great. And without the mower deck on (in fall or winter), just two pieces of rope do the same job.

Larry,
The suggestion(s) was most likely from me, although I cannot take the credit, my dealer was the person who suggested it. Based upon your post, sounds like you don't have the belly mower installed. In this case, the cheapest,best fix for holding the arms is to use a black rubber tarp,bungie strap (what ever you call them in your area). This works incredibly well for holding the arms in the highest position possible. even better than the $70 JD kit. Naturally, you want to attach the straps S hooks to the metal floor board supports and not the Hydraulic Lines. Secondly, don't expect a rubber strap to hold em with the mower attached. As for support with a mower.. You will need 4 hefty eye bolts, (threaded bolt with eye loop on the end). 2 attach to the mower lift arms brackets, which sit on top of the 3pt arms. The other 2 should be installed in the holes, located in the fender area..directly above the 3pt arms. Then..attach 1 turn buckle to each set of eye loops (QTY=2)...Two tips: measure the distance between the eye loops in the fully raised position. Then buy small turnbuckles which have to be at least 50% unscrewed to link the two eye bolts together. I didn't do this, and ended up buying buckles that were to big. Essentially they tight, yet the links were not held in the lifted position. And lastly, measure the diameter of the hole (2 attachment areas). Buy the largest eye bolts that will fit. The weight put on those eye bolts will be magnified by vibration and jolts during use.

Thanks Scott and MLS. I had been thinking about the bungie cord or rope type system. Just wasn't sure it would work. I never leave the deck on while using the 3 pt so anything more substantial will be unnecessary. After reading MLS post about the bungie strap I remembered that my tractor came with an annoying bungie strap hooked between the two lift links on the 3pt. It looks like it is the perfect length to do the job MLS suggested. Perhaps someone was thinking of this situation and forgot to mention it to the customer.

Randy,
Not sure exactly what you mean, but the 4100 uses a floating type deck. Meaning that it rides independently on four wheels. Each wheel shaft requires adjusting, to alter mowing height. Unlike others which are height supported and use wheels or roller to reduce scalping, and generally use a dial or lever to perform this function.
