So Far, the 3 Point Hitch Seems To Work.

Postby Willy » Wed Apr 18, 2018 7:51 pm

Got the major parts of the 3 point hitch together and on the Cub. And it seems to be working although I haven't tried to lift anything heavy with it either. I'll try to get some better pics tomorrow if I can. I've still got to do something for a stabilizer and put the "A" braces on the receiver drawbar. But my little test run this afternoon went very well.

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.

Looks good.

How is the top link mount anchored to the tractor?

I made one years ago and used a similar setup for the lift. I found that, on my tractor, the lift or rockshaft bushings were worn enough and the lift arm would rock enough such that the lifting action was never level. I ended up abandoning that method.

I've got a bracket for the top link attached to the "mast" that's welded to the main frame cross member and braced up with angle iron at the bottom. I am toying with the idea of adding some more bracing to it from the top of the mast angled down to the crossmember even if it does mess up that nice new red paint. The top link bracket is adjustable up and down

I put a new set of Barnyard's rockshaft bushings in it a couple of months ago. I adjusted the lower link arms to be level. The lift rods were changed from the stock 9/16 rod to 5/8 with new lower ends welded on. 5/8 was as big as I could go in the stock upper connecting bits.

I adapted a backhoe for cub years ago and made a bracket that went under the seat mount and over to the top of the differential. That gave me an attachment point for the top of the backhoe and I did the same thing for the top link on my 3 point hitch. The steel was around 3/8 inch thick so the seat and rock shaft mount sat 3/8 of an inch higher than before. If your top link mast starts to bend then that type of attachment point may be an option.
