Rotary plow on a 8199

Hello Im trying to get a rotary plow hooked up to the front of my 8199. the problem is with the push bar to lift and lower the unit. Is the lift bar any different than the one I use with my snow cannon? It appears to be too long

Re: Rotary plow on a 8199

From what I've read, the 4 inch long sleeve on the rear male end of the push rod needs to be removed, so the female front half will slide on the male half farther. I see the sleeve installed in your first picture.

Yes, the bar you need is shorter.

Steve, the sleeve on the rear end is welded on. I will take a measurement tomorrow to see if a sleeveless bar will fit. Thanks for the input.

What should the OAL be? I can't quite see in the picture. I got about 42.5 on mine with the sleeve on it

Re: Rotary plow on a 8199

Or is it a different front or rear bar I need?

Interesting. In all the attachment manuals I've read, I did not see anything about that sleeve being welded, only pictures showing the sleeve and a washer as spacers for different attachments and tractor frame lengths.

That pictured lift rod you have is for a snowblower. As you have noticed, it's too long for your needs with a rotary plow and front adapter kit. Let me know if you want the appropriate length rod......

The bar you need is approximately 21.5" from the end to the center line of the round peg. You will still need the 4" sleeve on the lift weldment because of the long frame you have.

Thank you

Re: Rotary plow on a 8199

Does the sleeve look to be factory welded? Maybe you can grind off the weld and have the sleeve loose as Steve suggested. Just a thought to solve the problem.

Re: Rotary plow on a 8199

Not sure if you have a sledge hammer, drill, welder and an angle grinder, but if you do, that push tube does not look too difficult to fabricate pretty quickly.

Use the one you have to measure the material diameter and wall thickness you need, then smash one end of the raw tube with the sledge, drill a hole, put a bolt in the hole and weld it fast, then cut tube to correct length and clean up the smashed end with the grinder.
