/ Bending lift arms on brush hog #31
Not if the angle is extreme. The arms only have so much upward travel.But they will float up so tractor does not force the implement down. The knuckle and the chain present the better scenario typically, but the chain will never reach a compression stop/limit like the knuckle - so the chain will never inhibit a backtipover incident, should the situation arise.
The OEM frame was cut off, a tool bar welded to the front of the disk, and this A-frame mounted.

No. ... But in less extreme, usually traction based rear up, the small amt of extra resistance may be the deciding factor whether recovery is possible.You are certainly, not trying to say, that some dude, vaping and listening to rap, while going up a 45° incline with his brush hog, should count on the 3/8" x 2" piece or two of steel to save him from "back tipping over", are you?
Here again, "common sense" plays a bit of a role.
That's a whole different situation, where the tractor was big enough to lift more weight, than the implement was designed for ... there is more concrete added, than the whole unit weighed! The new frame, is much heavier.
Sometimes, "common sense" should enter the equation.
