Default Need HELP With Disconnecting PTO & 3-Point Hitch

I currently have a Farm Force Bush Hog attached to my 2005 Kubota BX1500 that I just bought. I have never had a tractor with a 3-point hitch. I do not know how to detach the PTO or how do you unhook the bottom to pins from the attachment? There does not seem to be any movement in the hitch, to allow me to get them unhooked. I want to hook up my box scraper. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Its not to hard once you get the hang of it. You may need to loosen your sway chains on the 3 pt assembly ( should be a turnbuckle that attaches to the lower lift arms ). Then take out the pins holding the implement on and give the lift arms a good kick or smack with a 2" x 4" or whatever is handy should pop right off. The pto will be held in place by a push pin at the very front. Push it in while pulling backwards and it should come off. Hope this helps.

Smile Re: Need HELP With Disconnecting PTO & 3-Point Hitch

First, I find it easier to disconnect the drive shaft if you raise the lift arms to a point where the shaft will be straight and level. Also, I put WD-40 on the tractor PTO shaft before I hook it up, it helps it slide on and off. Then , when I set the mower down, I set it on 4X4 blocks toward the front of the mower. This allows you to raise and lower the arms to a point where there will be some slack in the tension on the lift pins on the implement. Once you do this and look at it closely you will understand what I am talking about. And this task is certainly easier with a helper!

also, the top link has the ability to adjust length. Once you set the cutter down adjust the top link to remove pressure on the pins so you can remove the pin(s). When you hook it back up re-adjust the top link to level the cutter.

This is about the fourth thread I have read tonight that someone started and never posted in their own thread.

When I'm unhooking my shredder, I lower it until there is no pressure on the toplink and unhook it. No change in adjustment this way. Then I unhook the pto shaft next. Then the lift arms. The way the grass grows here all year I don't put it up on anything. It doesn't sit long enough to start to rust.

I have to go through the same sequence hooking up my tiller. I have to lift it with the toplink unhooked to tip it back to get the pto shaft hooked up. Once hooked up it has an inch of clearance from being too long. Then I hook up the toplink.

Hi, Wanda. I'm just up the road from you, near Mineral. If you want to drive up, I'll be happy to show you about attaching and detaching implements on the 3PH and also the PTO. Please send me an email or private message if you're interested.
