    it IS in JDparts, you are missing a digit from the pn. it is: 5WP1008035KT
    no price because it is a whole parts kit, not the normal "parts" part. A salesman can can give you a price. but i know the anti scalp roller kit for my gm1060r was around $90,should be about the same for your gm3060

    How much is the QH kit? I have the same mower (GM 1072R) and now the iMatch so next Spring I will be wanting to have this ready to go.

    Here's a couple links with prices:
    NorTrac Quick-Hitch Bushing Set Fits Category 1 Hitches | 3-Point Hitch Adapters| Northern Tool + Equipment

    CountyLine® quick hitch Bushing Kit, Cat 1 - Tractor Supply Co.

    Quick Hitch Adapter Bushing Kit - Category 1 by Speeco for $16.99 in Pins - 3 Point - PTO - Hydraulics - Tractor Parts & Accessories - Agriculture : Rural King

    You'll still need the bushing for the top link. IIRC, the top link pins are .75 diameter and you'd need a bushing about 2.25" long. These are available at most Hardware Stores. I think I got mine at Ace Hardware.

    The QH bushings kit at Deere includes both upper and lower bushings (and roll pins), but it's pretty costly...over $60.00, I believe.

    BTW, as I'd written previously, Frontier mowers are manufactured by contractors. The finish mowers were BEFCO and Woods (mine is a Woods). Since I see some guys are looking for the anti-scalp roller, there will be more then one part number for parts.
    My dealer told me most of the 72" RFMs were Woods. It's easy to tell the difference...the Woods built mowers have "Woods" cast into their gearbox and the forward corners of the mower deck are rounded. The BEFCO mowers are squared off at the corners.
    I've had both BEFCO and Woods mowers. Both are great quality!

    Also, if you have a Woods mower that doesn't appear to be QH compatible, it actually may be.
    My Woods rotary cutter (bought used) has a section in the manual for reconfiguring the "A" frame for QH compatibility. If you have a Woods implement, do check your manual out before doing any modification.

    Thanks Roy, I got the bushings with my iMatch. And I have seen the sets of lower bushings at TSC with roll pins for $32.

    The kit I was thinking of is the one for the mower, the chains and straps that I see in the photo of your mower.

    Ahhhhh...OK!
    There's not really too much to that and you can probably modify it yourself rather then spend the money at Deere. It would fairly easy to replace the rigid braces with chains. The black fiber sleeves (over the chains) aren't really necessary. You would need longer bolts and large washers to attach the chains at the A frame and the deck stiffener.
    The attached .pdf file is extracted from the Woods Bush Bull manual and shows how to reconfigure the A frame for QH compatibility. It should give you some ideas, at least.

    Yes, I could probably make up the same with locally sourced materials.
    I was just wondering what the JD kit cost and then compare it to buying everything on my own.
    I found the part number for the kit on jdparts.com, but I could not get it to load into my shopping cart so I could see the price.

    I took mine off the day i bought the mower. They roll the grass and this thing even though it says even rear discharge throughs grass to the left enough the way it is. Woods RD7200. Also I have been reading your reports on quick hitch for the Woods. so I have to have the Woods kit? I am getting to dsamn old to be switching implements by hand. Saw a J.D. hour long show on RFD the other night [shows you how exciting my life is!] about the new compacts coming out with controls on the back fender for back and forth and up and dow. **** bypass couple wires under the seat and i can do that!.
