CS2510 3 pt hitch

Does anyone have some photos of their CS2510 with the 3 pt hitch arms installed? I have a vague recollection of reading somewhere that the arms are different if attaching to a BH subframe, and I'm a bit concerned I have only received the ones for the tractor without the BH frame.

The check link on mine seem different than the check link(more of a bracket arm) that I was able to locate in a video of a BH subframe 2410. The check link version doesn't seem to have the proper attachment mechanism to link to the subframe.

Thanks beemer, that's what I was afraid of. In the video of the 2410 there were also spacers where the check link attached to the subframe and I don't have those either. I was hoping this was a change for the 2510 but am doubtful.

Do you have actual links or are yours a solid bracket arm that stabilize the horizontal movement of the lower arms?

Re: CS2510 3 pt hitch

Thanks Gary, that was the exact thread where I saw the mention of it in the first place, I just couldn't find it when I went back to look for it again.

The original owner I bought the tractor from is a real stand-up guy. I had messaged him to ask if he by chance had the other hitch arms lying around somewhere. He said he didn't but called the dealership for me to see if they still had them. I told him he had no obligation to help me as this is part of what I signed up for when buying used, but he said he'd try the best he could.

He said the service manager there acted like he had no idea the CS 2510 was supposed to come with 2 sets of hitch arms when it was sold with the BH.

Re: CS2510 3 pt hitch

Well, more long stories of dealing with this dealership. I'll keep it brief; the highlight being the dealership telling the original owner there was no such thing as a shorter hitch arms, and that to use the 3 point hitch, the BH subframe had to be removed!

Called Kioti corporate after that and they called the dealership immediately and straightened them out. Then all of a sudden these non-existent parts were found. Go to pick up, only given the hitch arms themselves. Have to show them pictures of the spacer bushings and sway brackets and then they go back and get those also. Did not get the bolts to attach the sway brackets to the hitch arms but whatever.

Get it all home and hooked up, everything fits together well. Try to put on the HF quick hitch, but the arms do not spread wide enough to fit in it. Seems standard Cat 1 3pt hitch is 27" or so spread, max I'm getting is about 24 or 25". Am I set up wrong? Doesn't seem to be any other way to do it. Even taking off the sway links doesn't get me extra on the spread.

Anyone else have issues with certain attachments not fitting? Fortunately the snowblower I have is set up at 24.5" spread, although this means it wouldn't fit the quick hitch if that ever gets on the tractor.

Re: CS2510 3 pt hitch

I just went out and measured my Tractor Supply Carryall. It's 26-1/4 at the frame and 32-1/2 at the ends of the pins. No problems installing that - so something isn't quite right. I do have to install one pin, twist the carryall just a bit, and then then the other pin. I don't get a full 32-1/2 spread, but I certainly get in the 30 inch range.

I do remember the bearings being a bit stiff when I first used them. Push on them a bit and see if you gain a few inches.

Thanks for taking the time to check Gary. The bearings were definitely stiff, couldn't budge them by hand, but I tried pretty hard to force them apart once they were mounted. I'll spray some lubricant and give it a another shot.

I'm almost afraid to ask, are the links that mount vertically from hitch arms to the hitch part of the tractor that are used to raise and lower the 3 point arms different also when mounting to a subframe?

Re: CS2510 3 pt hitch

The Top Links are adjustable, so one will work for all.

There is some technique to install a 3-point "thing" to the tractor. It does require more effort than one would think. Maybe that's the downside to a Cat 1...I don't know because I have no basis for comparison.

Re: CS2510 3 pt hitch

All of the bearings were pivoting enough, so wasn't that.

The part I was trying to describe (poorly) is apparently called a lift arm leveling assembly. There's one on each side, black, one is adjustable (for leveling) and they go vertically from the part of the tractor that raises and lowers with the lever and the lower hitch arm themselves. They attach to the 2nd of the two holes on the lower hitch arms farthest from the tractor. This is what's tying everything up.

Remove those and it opens wide up. Unfortunately it was too dark to try and get into seeing if I had them on backwards, but from what I remember, because of the way they are twisted/angled, they only fit one way.

I seriously hope there isn't a different set of these for the BH subframe.

Re: CS2510 3 pt hitch

Figured it out, the ball socket at the top of the lift link arm was seized in there after having not been used for a 18 months, took a couple days of the penetrating oil to loosen it so that the lift link could pivot enough on its upper attachment to allow the lower link to swing out.

Kind of excited for spring to be able to do just that. I didn't know TSC stocked a carry-all until your previous post, so now that's on my wish list.

I had been debating clamp on pallet forks, but the carry-all will be much better for moving around (partial) pallets of pavers, retaining wall block, bags of feed, etc.

Going to start a post on this at some point, but I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to add a control valve to the rear hydraulics that our BH's hook up to.

Is that a true rear remote(s)? If so, wondering how difficult it would be to add a valve in the line to control something like a hydraulic top link. Looks like there's a blank in the right hand side of the operator station to add a lever for it.
