    In general terms 5 pto horse for each foot of "hog" You should be good with a 42, and if you were just cutting grass, you should be OK with a 48.

    I "think" you can turn the 3PT adjusting knob, on my BX25
    it is like close to my right heel as I sit in the seat, I think
    you can tighten it all the ay up and lock the 3 point at
    any height, I guess it there is no harm no foul for the chains?

    That knob controls how fast the 3ph goes down and it locks it. If you have the 3PH half down and lock it and pick it up it will be locked all the way up. You mainly lock it for run on a road so you won't bump the lever and drop a implement in the road.

    The chains are in tension when you lower the 3PH for mowing, and therefore set the front cutting height of the mower. There is no load on the 3PH during mowing, except for pulling.

    I'm not sure about the 3PH lock function, I use the chains because the dealer provided them with the mower and instructed me on how to use them. My dealer has been excellent at advising me on attachments and their operation, so I am staying with this set-up.

    Here is another photo of the chain arrangement. They hook to hard points on the tractor frame:

    That it what I thought they were for since the BX doesn't have a position control on the 3PH.

    The BX25 Manual talks about those tabs for chaining up the 3ph.
    I do not exactly remeber where I saw it but 2 weekends ago I was
    reading and I remember seeing it. If I remember right it says the
    tabs are for chaining up the 3ph so it will not fall...

    This hookup is all good in my book. Learn sumthin' new every day!
