I have a lockout bar for the 3-point hitch if you are interested.

I'm going to have to check this out. So it is possible to lock the 3 pt from operating when the hydraulics are used? Now, if I put the lever in 'lift' position, the 3 pt rises pretty fast, then the snow blade slowly comes up after a pause. I noticed when mowing last summer the deck was pretty slow acting but didn't know if this was normal for a LoBoy or not. Most of my tractor operating was done on much larger mid-late 1960's & 1970's Cas & Allis Chalmers tractors. Their hydraulics were fairly fast and sensitive as I recall. Thanks - Greg

Locking out the 3-point will speed up the deck movement by quite a bit.

The reason the 3-point moves faster or first is that it is the lightest load. Once the load evens out or the 3-point reaches it's top point, the stop, the hydraulics will move the next lightest load - the deck.
I have an excuse. CRS.
