Cabela’s LM36H
Need Assistance - Please. I purchased the LM36H Tractor (made by TYM) from Cabela’s (unfortunately before they went out of business. After looking at the 3 point setup, I noticed a difference in the two lower Lift Arms - one bends where it connects to the bottom of the tractor & again about 1/2 way up; the other Lift Arm bends where it connects to the bottom of the tractor & is straight all the way up to the top. Not sure why this is or is this normal? Thank You - Felix

The left arm is indeed bent where the bolt for the telescopic stabilizers is.

It can be straightened by using an hydraulic press (easiest method) or some wood block and a sledge hammer hitting in the right spot.

K - good suggestion. It’s weird that it came this way as a new tractor. The problem with the straight lift arm, is the range of travel. I hooked up a 5 ft Roto tiller and the right side (straight lift arm) has a tighter range of leeway Where as the left angled one can adjust much further. The right straight one binds.

That picture above is the wrong picture - was from the internet. This is from my tractor with the issue. I’m new to this forum so just getting acquainted.

That's indeed very odd that the tractor was delivered with the bent arm. That usually happens by not having the stabilizers adjust right or by pushing something in reverse, like a box blade or something. The 3 pt is really meant to lift and pull.

I see a couple things not quite right though.

- The obvious bent arm, which needs to be fixed to get things straight again

- The lower pin brackets on the tiller, should be facing forward and not up. It's hard to see but looks like its mounted on a square tube and can be easily fixed by just flipping 90 degrees.

- The Pats hooks, which makes hooking implements easier but pretty much constraints most axis of movement as it makes the ball end pretty much useless. One of the big reason why the Euro style hook is better as it still retains the ball joint, allowing to freedom of movement in all axis. This may very well be the cause of some of the binding you're getting, however, once everything else is fixed, it should work just fine.

Found a picture of another tiller, which I believe is similar to yours, with the brackets facing forward:

If that mistakenly loaded pic is another LM36, then both of your arms look to be the wrong ones.

Here is another pic of a LM36 that looks to have completely different arms than yours...

Thanks for that image & observation midniteoyl. Hopefully I eventually will be able to get a confirmation from someone who has this LM36H on exactly what style they had when purchased. Both arms look like they were designed the way they are; one pretty much straight, other than their short-angled bends at each end & the other arm has the short angle-bends at the ends but also a bend in the middle inward towards the center of the tractor - it doesn’t appear to have been stress-bent but factory press-bent.

Cobalter,

I purchased a Cabela's LM55H back in 2016. While not the exact model as yours, it should be relatively the same when it comes to the lift arms. Here is a pic of mine so you can compare.

Out of curiosity, you say you purchased the tractor before Cabela's was bought by Bass Pro which was years ago, so are you just now noticing the bent lift arm, or just now questioning it?

I would say the left is the right one , just on the wrong side and should be flipped end for end. The right side is the wrong arm.
