Well, I played around a bit with that dump accessory I got with the 900 and it appears that I am missing part of the setup it needs to be mounted on the tractor.
I been trying to see what the hitch looks like by searching and studying the brochures but they don't give a close enough pic to completely see the setup.

Anyone out there who has a Brochure/manual or picture of one of these things??:confuse: :help:

Here is a pic of the rear of the tractor.

The brochure states that you can have the deck still attached while the dump is mounted...

Brian,doesn't the tractors trailer hitch slide into it with a pin down through it to hold it,and the two parts with the pins,would they mount to the axle tabs ?
I would think that's how it should be.
Can you take a pictures of from the front the bracket where it meets the tractor?

Played around with it a bit more and got it hooked up like this.
It looks to be correct, but the dump seems too close to the ground....

Thanks :thumbs:

I'm really likeing this attachment. Now whenever I need to haul something from one place to the other, I can just put it in the dump instead of having to hitch up the trailer.

needs some paint as well....
