    This is a perfect example of SIZE DOES MATTER. You need to go spend some $$$$ on the proper sized implements for your current tractor.

    Any pictures of the damage and/or how you are hooking them up to the tractor?

    A cat II disc a-frame should not be bent by your tractor unless you are turning/backing it up into a tree or something. And unless you are having about 2' of side to side slop, the TL should not be bending because it has swivel eyes that are free to swing side to side. the only way to bend that sideways is to run out of swivel in the eye itself.

    for reference for what is what.

    below image is from Double HH Quality Products - Don't Compromise... Demand Double HH


    pictures are worth a 1000 words. some pictures of 3pt hitch on your tractor, and 3pt plow and the 3pt disc.

    wondering if your lower arms on 3pt hitch. have adjustable length. to make it easier to attach to stuff.

    wondering if you have check chains and/or sway bars / stabilzer arms.

    with using cat 1 pin in a cat 2 3pt hitch. you really should get some bushings. to reduce the hole size in the top link and lower arms. so cat 1 pin can be used without any sort of slop / play. if you do not. you risk ovaling out the holes in both 3pt hitch and on the implement attached. and at greater risk bending the arms and top link. due to the smaller pin in larger holes can allow for more movement. and put things out of whack.

    on back of your tractor do you have different locations, were you can put top link or lower lift arms to switch between cat 1 and cat 2? see link http://www.tractorsmart.com/main/Tra...ft%20Types.htm

    I would check the upper lift arms and make sure one isn't stripped and not doing anything for a little bit.

    Does your tractor by chance have two (an upper and lower) mounts for the top link? If it does, you want to use the lower one.

    Doesn't your tractor have telescoping lift arms to ease hook-up? Is it possible one is extended and the other is latched forward? Just brainstorming things that could have an effect.

    You do have the lift arms adjusted level when using the disk, right? Sometimes when using the plow you have to shorten the right-side so that the plow is level when the tractor wheel is in the furrow. When done with the plowing you have to remember to put the lift arms back to level for the other implements.

    If all implements are pulling to the left I would check everything on the tractor carefully, that no part of the linkages are bent or installed wrong, both lift arms are doing their share of lifting, etc.

    I'm not familiar with your particular JD, but a lot of tractors allow you to move some pins in the lift arms so that the lift arm can either float or be fixed. I would set them to the fixed postion, no floating, and be sure both side are set the same. If there are multiple fixed holes be sure both sides are set the same. I've also seen tractors where the draft sensing mechanism is on the lower links and you can actually attach the lower lift arms to different points so as to vary the draft sensitivity. Again, if you have this be sure both sides are set the same
