Re: 3 pt hook up
Some attachments are not made to the precise specifications for the quick attach 3 point to function correctly. You can modify your implements so they are to specification.
As far as hooking up the implements, I lower the lift arms all the way, back up so the tractor is centered on the implement, then, by hand, lift up one side of the lift arms and pull it out around the pin on the implement. When the other side is touching the pin, I push or kick it out to the side, around the pin, line up the one I'm holding, pin it, then do the other side. You could run a bungee cord or something I guess, but it's never been that tough for me.
That's not much help, but it takes some practice to get the tractor lined up correctly and get the hang and timing of attaching things.
