I bought KennyP's 450. Replaced the battery and cleaned up some connections and it starts and the electric hitch actuates. whats the adjustment/setting for the lift bar? the actuator moves but the rear hitch will not lift up.. Do i need to remove the mower deck to use the rear hitch? I looked in the 400 series manuals but I don't see any initial settings. could someone direct me to the proper place?

thanks in advance

Norwee

Glad you got things working better. I'd have to do some searching through thew Gravely site to find that.

It may be item #12 is not installed in this parts manual.

i can see the actuator move but I don t know what the setting is for the bar going to the hitch itself. there's  3 or 4 holes for the pin. I might just need to play with it. thanks again for the sale.planning on putting the 30 inch brush hog on the front mount and cleaning up the banks , hopefully without falling off

I was hoping that manual had more to it. Try different holes and see what happens.
