There is some discussion about needing a longer top link with some tractor/implement combinations? Any other problems?
    There is a design problem that will probably hit nearly everyone sooner or later if you get in the ruf. The lever handle that controls the pin lock lever is rather fragile in relation to Murphys Law. This lever hande is weakened at its root by a thru hole drilled for a roll pin that serves as an anchor point for the spring that holds the pin lock extended. If the handle breaks it will be here, loosing the anchor point. This allows the lock lever to retract and the implement pin to escape the "U". Better to anchor the spring to the lock lever vs the lever handle. That way, even if the handle gets torn off, the system will still work and doesnt throw you into emergency fix mode.

    Just got my set last week and I am really pleased. I will probably have to get a longer toplink as the one on the tractor is really stretched to the max on my disc. I bought another similar looking system about a year ago to ease the hookup burden. Waste of $100. There were no set screws on the system to keep it from wobbling all over the arms. Spent a lot of time replacing lynch pins that it broke clean off. I haven't tried the system on all of my attachments yet but I know I'm going to be way happier.
