Do you mean the front hitch? Adjusting between road travel and field use?

Yes sir that's the one. It seems to be locked in the field position and I can't budge it but it's loose if you shake it. Just won't swing straight ahead. Thanks for the reply

If it's loose but won't swing it could be the pto shaft as Jim said. Try removing the front pto support from the tongue and try to swing it then. Our 346 has worn the pto shaft slide so it catches if stopped with pressure on the driveline. Acts te same way when trying to cross over to transport position.

I"d jack up the front of the baler frame, unhook from the tractor, and try to move it. That long in position? Maybe pivot is rusted solid.

I have tried that and I'm afraid your right. Years back I saw my brother try to back up the tractor and swing it but that didn't work either.

Thanks again

I have a few nasty ideas about anchoring the baler with a couple of tractors and whacking it with something bigger....after checking for bent, binding parts, like another poster suggested....but maybe the best is to clean out all hay, hit the pivot with an oxy torch, with a rosebud tip..........maybe stick some candlewax on it as it cools, and try moving it. Wax melts between stuck parts, threads, etc....and loosens things. WD40 used to be good, new formulation is xxxx pizz.
