Fast hitch leveling crank

Fri Nov 29, 2013 12:51 pm

Hey guys, Is there a different crank handle for leveling the fast hitch from side to side depending on whether the tractor has the pan seat or the deluxe seat? I just installed a fast hitch on my 76 with deluxe seat and if the handle is turned forward it will hit the seat frame. Chuck

Only one crank, maybe something you have on the crank or seat is bent or modified?

Boss, that's what made me wonder because I saw a lowboy with a different handle.
Tim, I don't think anything is bent other than the crank handle like it's supposed to be, but if the handle is turned forward it would hit the seat frame when it's about 3/4 of the way up.

Welcome to the club. Mine has destroyed the original seat. Need to find a practical way to keep the handle rearward.

Luckily I haven't hit mine yet but can see it coming in the future if I don't do something to prevent it from happening.
