    Those of us with Freedom Hitches are content to lounge back with tea and crumpets while the rest of you struggle with the Stone Age three point hitch. This position also reduces stress on the calcaneus, as I am sure Doc will agree.

    Yes, Stan, or like they say about driving in England...the left side is the right side and the right side is suicide.

    Tom Trees,

    I use a long metal pry bar to persuade my attachments.... [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] I also use a ball hammer. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't have the luxury of having a flat smooth service to park the equipment. Its all sitting in the woods. I do try to put the MX6 on cedar logs so its easier to move around. The pry bar does provide good leverage and its pretty easy to hook the equipment up. Left side first and then the right side.

    One day, maybe next year, I'll have a slab and foundation poured for a barn. Won't have the money for a barn but at least I can park the tractor and attachments in a level place......

    Later....

    I would have said the same until yesterday. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/blush.gif[/img] I hooked up my new <font color=orange>kubota</font color=orange> FL1271RC Rototiller onto my 2910. It looked so easy. Until I found that it does not set level on the tines. After much tugging, prying, kicking and !!*&%$#$ the lower arms finally aligned on hitch pins.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img] When I tried to hook up the top link tiller had rolled back so far that top link was not long enough. Some more prying and !!*&%$#$. It was attached. I will not go into hooking up the PTO shaft. There is another thread about that.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
    I did take it off with blocks under skid shoes so it doesn't set on tines. That should make it easier to attach next time.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
    The size and weight of the attachment has a lot to do with getting attached to a 3 ph.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    Ronh,

    Can't you raise your skidshoes to keep the tines off of the ground when not in use? If you can't, kubota engineering needs to rethink their design.

    I have a LandPride tiller and when I raise the skidshoes the tines are a couple of inches of the ground. Additionally, with the tines off of the ground, I can manuver it around when attaching the 3ph (well, barely!!) It also has a support stanchion to keep the PTO shaft up and ready for use when attaching.

    In the lowest position the tines still touch the ground. A couple of 2X4's under each skid solved the problem. But at 490 lbs. It doesn’t move around easily.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/tongue.gif[/img] The PTO shaft problem was caused by letting tiller roll forward and dirt getting into the spline and locking balls. A small brush and cleaner and it went on OK. I have it in the barn on concrete floor now. Should not be as much a problem next time.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    I have a Landpride 2560 tiller with an adjustible " foot" on the right front corner that you lower when you disconnect it from the 3 point so that it can't fall forward. However the balance of the tiller is such that it falls ( rotates around the tine shaft) backwards[img]/w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. The engineer who designed that thing obviously never tested it! I have to place an 8" or so block of wood under the large hinged rear flap to keep the tiller upright in order to hook-up. Do other tillers do this ? I have the skid shoes adjusted for maximun depth so the tiller rests on the tines when off the tractor.

    Rch,

    I have the 50" Landpride and same here. It stays upright on flat level surface when there is no wind. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]
