|Tony in Mass. said: (quoted from post at 10:32:04 09/03/13) We'll let other guys look at this cool pile of stuff and chime in... but yeah, looks like #1&2 you don't want on a bushog. #3 on either side it fits is all you need. One should be fine. If the over run fits the 30's smaller pto shaft... just try it out. If you bind up on anthills and high spots, dips and gullies- you'll have to losen or play with the top link, I don't ? suspend? my hogs, I let them skate the ground...as I think they were designed to do, not a nice lawn you don't want scarred, but out in the rough. I'd say you are fixed enough to start putting it all together... just don't go 4 wheelin' with it just yet!|
Tony I agree on the "skating" except my back field is like Alcatraz -a rock pile. I always mowed close for my customers unless there was stumps or rock. But here I have already broke a blade so I mow higher than I would like to in some areas. As far as a single sway bar - I would prefer 2 as it is easy to put a lot of pressure on the hog in a turn when in a rocky area. However I will probably try it for at least one mowing.
I may have a left bracket (used) on order to be shipped tomorrow. And thanks to Tom Bowman I have the larger shaft (darn and I just put seals in my older small shaft) Also I found in a box left with the tractor an adaptor for putting the large ORC on the smaller shaft. My old faithful Ford 909 budh hog had a slip clutch. I have 3 bush hogs now an d today when I went up to get the arms from the pile of gray matter I got on top of the bushog out there to see id the gear box was splined or round. Surprise !! I noticed a tag on the bush hog "Ferguson" Boy what a heavy killer it is. Later this summer I gotta bring it down and check it out -may be fun to fix up to go with my Fergy when we go out huuntin WEMEN "CUMON Jake lets go"
