Just bout a slightly used kioti. I got my hands on a nice Woods PRD8400. I’ve got it all hooked up and even when my stabilizers are shortened all the way I still have tons of slop. Probably 6-8 inches each way. I’m beating my head against the wall trying to figure this out. Help!

Why do you have so much slop in your bottom ones? They should be tight and pull against each other after centering/offsetting.

Edit: Otherwise you need an arm stabilizer bar t do the same job.

It looks like ya got them in the wrong holes.
Lift rods on my tractor are in the holes closest to the tractor and the sway chains are in the further holes.

I just went and looked at my Kubota and I have three holes on each arm. Inner two for the lift rods and the sway chains are in the outer hole. Not a good pic.

do you have a kioti? You think it’s backwards? Thinking about it that would take all this extra slack I can’t figure out, away. I just bought it, only has 200 hours. I wonder if the previous owner switched it for some reason…. Trying to find some pictures now.

My EXACT thought Alan. Lift rods and stabilizers are in the wrong holes. Swap them and the stabilizers will tighten up nicely.

You where right. Holy shit I was getting so annoyed. I totally missed it. Now I’m super curious why someone did that….Thank you so much..

I have three holes in my lift rods. My stabilizers are in the furthest out hole - lift rods in the middle hole.

You can see the arrangement in this pic of my Kubota. The previous owner may have been using the 3-point for something very narrow and needed the extra length to make connection. Or maybe he just didn't understand.

Interestingly all of kioti's expo and brochure images have it that way.

However, if you look at dealer tractors for new and used listings (not marketing images) they have the stabilizer turnbuckles on the outside as suggested.
