After taking my BH90 off of my L3240 today, I couldn't quite figure how to
stow/adjust the rear BH hoses so they don't get in the way of the 3pt hitch, or get kinked. Anyone here lend some experience on this, and or pictures how you fold these hoses so they don't get caught up in the 3pt hitch or rub the rear right tire?

For a temporary solution, you could use a zip tie or two (or a bungee) to tie them to the bottom of the ROPS, or somewhere similar to keep them up and out of the way.

I have a large zip tie permanently attached (loosely) to the back that I loop the hydro hose through before it connects back to the tractor. It keeps it tight to the right side so the 3 point doesn't bite it.
Sorry I don't have a picture right now. I'm going to my farm this afternoon and will try to remember to snap a pic and post it for you.

Hi Happyman,
thanks for the info, post a picture if you get a chance, I'm going to try and rig something up temproary with a bungy cord. Maybe I'm worried too much about this hose getting kinked or cut, but better to be safe than have to replace the hose later and/or have a hydraulic leak.

See ya,
BotaYota:D

I simply loop the longer hose over the lower ROPS brace...

Phil, After looking at your pictures some more I now know why your rear hyraulic hose is longer. My hose is routed under that gold flang hook that is to the right top side of the hydraulic coupler. Your hose is routed straight out above the hydraulic fill plug.
