    Default Re: Trouble Connecting Scarifier to Kubota M5040

    We hooked the scarifier up to a 1970's model International today. Category I hitch. Everything fit real well. I suppose for now we'll just plan to use the old tractor with this implement, though I'm not getting rid of the dimensions I laid out for the planned modifications. In a pinch we could use the category II tractor, it's just a lot harder to get hooked up, because of the tight clearances.

    The International is 4,000 lbs, almost identical to the kubota. It's 2wd and 'only' 32 HP at the drawbar. I assume this would still be fine even in hard dirt, worst case we take a few shallow passes instead of one 14" deep cut?

    I did notice that if you let off the clutch too fast into forward gear, it can tend to do a "wheelie" on you a bit. With all the added drag of the 7'6" scarifier, will we need to worry about too much 'weight' on the back? I guess it can't really flip itself up on the rear wheels since the scarifier will be attached to the back.... will the added drag just make the rear wheels pull down into the soil and get added traction? (sorry for newbie questions...)

    If you have it on the kubota like it is and sink it in the ground does it still hit or is it just hitting when in transport....
    Depending on the weight of the drag its just gonna pull the tractor down even more....

    I think if we sunk it in the ground, it would not rub, but it would be close. It rubs unless we angle the implement forward (nose-down) before hooking up to the Kubota. I would be fine building some sort of cradle that holds the implement nose-down if we need to. That said, I am not sure if we could tilt the implement that far forward in the "up" position and still get it level when it's under the ground? I wish there was a steep ditch near by we could back up to and check the depth/angle.

    Some how you need to move the lower pins forward 2 to 3 inches. Then I think you would have full articulation forward / back and left and right tilt.

    That looks to be an old ford or dearborn spring tooth cultivator. I had one just like it, only it was ford blue.
    It looks like you are going to have to, have someone, fab a bracket that will lengthen out and drop down the lower link pins.
    The free option is to park the implement in front of a burm so the tractor is higher that the implement.
