    Boom bent?

    Thank you all for the great feedback and suggestions. I think I've located the issue. Starting starting to wonder if I really caused this or if I just happened to notice it recently. For reference, the tractor is basically brand new. I'm paranoid by nature and just assumed I had done something...

    Boom bent?

    Unfortunately, it's not the pin. I was hoping that was the case as well. I removed it and rolled it on a flat surface to check. The gusset was slightly bent, but I'm not sure if it's enough to cause that much deflection on the cylinder.

    Boom bent?

    No insurance. Had no idea this was even a thing until Friday when I first posted. God my dealer sucks… Anyways, tried a few things this weekend. The top right pin mount I bent a little but not enough to cause a major issue like this. I think it’s a combination of things. Weather didn’t...

    Boom bent?

    Should I just run it as is? The rubbing on the link had me concerned that I might damage the cylinder if I left it as is.

    Nothing seems to bind but the link is rubbing and the cylinder doesn’t line up on the left. Cylinder needs some force to get it to slide into links for the ssqa. Havent tried taking the pin for the bucket cylinder out yet. Might try that next once the rain stops.

    Boom bent?

    More noob questions. I was clearing some of my property and caught the base of a tree on the left side. Didn’t think much of it but when inspecting the bucket today I came across an issue. I think the cylinder is straight. I checked with a straight edge. Links look ok also. How screwed am I...

    W.R. Long still recommended?

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I didn’t realize how the solenoid worked and thought I’d have issues with it clamping the brush too hard. I think I’ll get the wr long kit.

    W.R. Long still recommended?

    Didn't think about engine rpm and bumping the switch. That clarifies a lot. Thanks!

    W.R. Long still recommended?

    Thanks guys. Anyone know if there are any options on the market now that include feathering or flow control?

    I've found that I can get a custom grill from a local fabricator for less than pre-fab solutions. Only a minor inconvenience that I need to go take it to get powder coated myself. No issue with these guys but it's always a plus to me if I can support local businesses.

    W.R. Long still recommended?

    Looking to purchase a 3rd function soon. Is the w.r. long kit still the most recommended? I primarily need it for a grapple. The grapple will be used for clearing my properly. There's a ton of small brush (privet) that I need to clear as well as a fair bit of trees/logs. Are there any kits out...

    3 point bushing kit?

    That’s what I plan to do next time I remove the blade. I picked up some more bushings the other day.

    3 point bushing kit?

    Ended up buying adapters from Tractor Supply. They aren't quite wide enough and they are too wide to double stack the ones adapters the tractor came with. I have no interest in a quick hitch and think the dealer sold me this box blade simply b/c it's what they had on the lot...
