I also have a 184 here that will lift a 23A disc onto my trailer, IF you can keep the front wheels on the ground
Mine lifts a 300 lbs landscape rake easily, the prob I notice is the front wheels at that point seem to be floating a little as if they want to lift..lolgitractorman wrote:I think you'll find that the "typical" lift capacity of a Cat-1 3-point hitch is rated at about 300 to 500 pounds. Many will lift a lot more than that, and many folks on here will tell you that they've lifted a lot more than that, but I'm fairly certain the specs are in that range. It's not only a matter of pump pressure, but also leverage. I'd say that you're probably well over the 500 pound mark for tongue weight on a 26' boat, and probably more like 1000 pounds, so you're probably just trying to lift more than the tractor will do.
If your tractor isn't getting light in the front end while trying to lift the trailer then something is wrong with the hydraulics as Hamiltonbob suggests. If it is lifting the front of the tractor then the trailer is just too heavy.Landreo wrote: If you are lifting too heavy of a load the release valve should start to open. You should hear the noise of the bypass valve. If you don't then likely you have a worn pump.
