    Default Lower Lift Arms

    Just before we came over here we were talking about lower lift arms and the fact that some people have problems with the arms hitting the tires. It may be that some grays that came from Japan with a tiller never had 3 point lower lift arms. Sometimes the importing dealer puts on a pair of generic arms which may not fit quite right. I measured the factory arms on my 186D today. They are about 27 1/2" as the crow flies. .75 thick, 2 1/2" wide. They have a lot of shape. They curve around the tire and then head straight back. Something like 5" offset. The arms stick out past the tires about 16". The turnbuckles pull the arms in, which is different than some of the John Deeres that I have seen. That also means that it is easier to use implements with the pins turned in.

    Don't the lower lift arms/hitch pins only hit the tires due to excessive side play? When I first saw my YM2000B, the tires had been slightly chewed up on the insides, however when the dealer delivered it with a rotary mower installed, it had safety/retaining chains with turnbuckles on each side removing all sideplay and making it impossible to hit the tires.

    I suspect that if you have the wrong lower arms they are more likely to hit the tires. I would have to let the turnbuckles way out to get my lower arms to rub the tires. Even on big implements with the pins pointing out my lower arms dont come close to the tires. I think it is because of the shape of the lower lift arms.
