    Default Longer lift arms for 6500

    I was just wondering if longer lift arms can be fitted to a 6500. The orginals seem short to me (we have a MF 240 and those seem proportionally longer). I guess I'm worried about messing up pre-calibrated geometry. If anyone knows or has experience with this, how about commenting,

    Thanks,
    Roger

    HI Roger, I would also be concerned about affecting your lift capacity. The further something is out the harder it is to lift. Are you having trouble with the arms coming into contact with something? I know I usually need to remove the drawbar when I use the 3 point. Not necessarilly a bad thing but something to keep an eye on. I would leave them alone unless there is something you can't do because of it.
