    Default How do I adjust draft control on Montana

    I have a LT360HST but don't understand the draft control on the 3-point. I have two levers and two knobs--how do I set?

    The draft control will raise the 3 point implement as the tractors engine loads down. Lever all the way down is basically no draft control. Lever all the way up will lift the arms under light load.
    I set it at mid range and fiddle with it while I work.

    Make sure you have the top link connected into the right hole at the tractor end. Put both draft and position control levers all the way forward. Pull the draft control lever back to the height you want the implement to maintain. As your implement pulls down into the ground and makes it harder to pull the 3 pt will raise to the height you've adjusted. You might have to also adjust the 3 pt speed lowering knob (below the seat on my Kioti) to slow it down.
