arm pic.jpg

    Where the hydralic arm attaches to this stotted piece. Should it slide through it or should it be tight enough to remain in the same spot and make the arm move?

How much movement should this arm have? Mine only moves maybe half an inch.

 

I fixed it for you Bill.

This slot is to allow the mower deck and rear implements to float as are the short slots on the pull arms. All those sliding and pivot points can be greased to reduce wear. Good time to grease the steering gears and zerks on the front axle. I also grease the lift carriage pivot points.

The piece the pull arms connect too. how much should it move? Mine only moves a few degrees.

These pics show the travel of the rock shaft arm, about 45 deg. Hope this helps.

it may only move a short distance with no weight. ad some weight to the 3pt(if equipped) and you should see a difference. if you dont something is binding or not hooked up properly.

the problem looks to be the arm on the ram. It just slides in the slot. Are there some kind of friction washers to stop that? It seems tight enough.

The cylinder rod end is suppose to slide in the slot for the reason stated above. Stand on the draw bar to make it go down, you should see the full travel then. There is no down force from the cylinder, only lifting force. If you watch the rod of the cylinder retract and extend in the slot, it will only lift when it hits the end on the slot and that will be only a few degrees of rotation of the rock shaft arms, if there is no weight on the lift carriage like a mower deck or front plow.

if/when you have weight on the carriage or the 3pt and it doesnt move, THEN you have a problem.

like stated by VTX, it is slotted to allow the attachments to float.

 

picture this, your cruising down the driveway with a box blade on the rear, if the rear tires hit a dip the box blade will gouge an area of the driveway....you will never get anything level like that. now picture that scenario with every attachment made. hence the purpose of the float feature.

It works!!!!   

dummy me......didn't notice the cutting height adjustment on the other side was all the way up and that was not allowing the hitch to drop any lower. Lowered it, stood on the draw bar and presto!!! Now if I could find a tiller attachment :)

Glad you figured it out.  Unfortunately, tillers for these seem to be in big demand with very low supply. :(
