I just purchased a MF sickle mower that works fine attached to my neighbors Ford 8N. My problem is I have a newer tractor, John Deere 5210, with Telescoping Draft Links on the arms of the 3PT hitch and they are two bulkey to attach to the left side of the sickel mower. I was wondering if anyone new of an easy way to get around this.
Have used MF mower on 245, 255, and 50, 255 had sim problem. I have a prob on the 245 with the link pin holder on the left lift arm, it works but rubs until I get it raised up. It has worn enough over the years to fit better. How far out(back) can you move the arms? Maybe they will extend enough to get around the interference area? If not, would an older , non-telescoping, lower arm fit? Still a pain but do-able.
