    Default Re: Boom Poles

    Here's another boom pole photo. This one is mounted on my JD4100. Seems to be the same one as shown in the Northern catalogs. Rated @ 800# cap.

    It is shown in the highest raised postion possible on that tractor. The toplink has been shortened up and is right up close to the crossbar. When lowered the boom would be just about horizontal. Extending out the toplink allows the tip to reach lower when dropping the boom but wouldn't raise as high when lifted. Using a hydraulic toplink would be great for getting the full range of adjustment quick and easy. I gotta get me one. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    (JMIII, if your out there I have followup question to ask of you.)

    BTW, found this one for sale at little business out here in the boonies that was combined trailer sales, 3pt equipment & barbershop. Not quite sure which part was the main business but the guy in the chair getting a haircut had to sit and wait while I transacted my "Barn Pole" purchase.

    John, you sure seem to be right on top of what ever is available for tractors so I would like to ask if maybe you or some of your Deere friends could get some info on this part for me. Such as what it cost and it's availability

    My JD4100 parts catalog lists a hydraulic top link kit from John Deere. (see attachment) I asked about it at the dealership when I got my rear aux hydraulic kit and they couldn't get any info on it.

    Hey, where else but TBN right? [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks

    DFB,

    I think you missed a key word in the illustration - European Version. Now, does that mean that we cannot get the link kit here in the states.

    Terry, Yep that's what it says. Europeon version. Dealership sugggested it could be had thru JD dealers in Canada. They weren't interested in checkin' it out any further for me though.

    DBF,

    Another dumb question? Why don't they offer the part here in the states?

    Are the 4100's different in Europe?

    I would certainly think of buying one for my 4100 if the the price was reasonable.

    Rick, all that cable sure brings an easy solution to mind, and seems like a handy one for lifting things out of 'deep' spots. Mount a plate on the back that could be used to mount an inexpensive hand crank winch. Good place to 'store' the excess cable, but would also allow lifting an item from a greater depth. Course, one could always make that a 12 volt winch!

    From what I've seen, there are alot of catagory 2 hyd. toplinks along with European units for some reason, but not many cat. 1 units available. I know that JiffyHitch & "somebody" Supply (can't remember the full name right now)offers them & Tisco may if you can find a distributor. I got a video from JiffyHitch previewing their quick-hitch system & hyd. toplink, but was not very impressed with them. They are very nice people though. There is alot of discussion about the subject on this board if you were to do a search. I have not found one that fits my TC33 just right so I will probably have one made like many on this board have done. You need to make sure that the depressed & extended lengths will work with your tractor & it's implements. I can get a cylinder at Quality FarmNFleet for $60 & then weld on the ends & attach hoses. I will tackle this in the winter - I hope...

    I purchased my Tisco cylinder from TSC. They have a Tisco Catalog at customer service counter. $82.00 plus tax.

    I cruised the JD UK and DE websites and could not find any references to the hydraulic top link.

    What I was trying to ask is why can't we get that option/part here in the states. The Europeans can also get a cab for the 4100! I would think that a cab would be something that would sell well in this country.

    Stupid manufacturers! Sometimes I just don't think that they think things through....

    RonJHall,
    Was that Tisco cylinder all set up as a hydraulic toplink or just the plain cylinder?
