Hello all. I am sending a question out to all of the large frame owners that have a 3 point hitch. This can be the older large frame or the newer HT. Both can apply to my question. The question is: what is the full travel length from the edge of the lower lift arms from the fully lowered to the fully raised positions? The reason for my asking is I’ve put the older style 18010 on an HT and in the near full raised position the arms do make contact with the rear of the frame. I knew that going into the purchase of this setup that there could be some interference. It’s not an issue with me but did want to know if I was really loosing some travel or if it was just a little bit. I am not opposed to notching the frame (gasp). Due to this being a restomod already and there being NO intention of getting rid of this machine. The frame has already been cut and modified extensively for the diesel conversion. If I’m only loosing an inch of lift I’m not worrying about doing anything to the frame but if I’m seriously loosing travel it will be considered. My travel from the center of the attachment mounting eye to the ground is 7 1/2 in lower position to around 15 at full lift when the arm brackets of mine touch the frame from being the older style setup. Any and all of your help is GREATLY appreciated Thanks Jeff
I don't have a picture at this time of how they touch the frame but this one shows where it would touch if raised higher. They touch upper corner of frame.
