2ruNgineer said: (quoted from post at 14:50:29 06/19/13) This is one of the reasons why i bought the Zane Thang for my 2N. Been worth every penny. Don't have to go to full height anymore.

That's a good sized shreader for that tractor, btw.

Not sure about soundguys statement on moving pins down.? If you move the pins up you will lessen the angle at full lift if the top link is adjusted accordingly.

Yes the Zane Thang is on the list, but as you see below there is an issue with the control arm that would prevent it from working at the moment. The lift works as advertised except for the position of the arm. in the picture it's shown in the almost all the way up position, i'm not sure whats going on with that. I have to get the 9N running and here first before I get down to the finer points. I also have to free up the brakes on this 2N too.
the Mower is 66"and is maybe a little big but the property is mostly flat and when I had it running earlier it did really well on really tall grass.
Soundguy : Not sure what you meant here I see on the mower the lower pins are on extensions way above the deck but I don't see how changing that geometry is going to prevent the interference. also when you say there is no reason to have the "mower spinning when at full height" I don't see how I could accomplish that without taking the shaft off? I was going to put a hanger chain on one side so I could hang the shaft to keep it from dangling when disconnected.

Wow, that is a huge mower compared to my little 4'

I have a question. What is that black box thing on the mower at the end of the pto shaft?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That's just a hood like guard to keep you from easily getting at the and end of the shaft. It's poorly designed. It won't come off with the shaft in place and it makes it hard to reach the bolt .

re=read my post and ponder exactly what I said.. and not anything else. :) I'm sure it will come to you.

a hint for the up/spin comment. you are correct. you disconnect a pto to keep it from spinning. IE.. no need to hav ea mower aimed at the sky and spinning like all get out.

a hint for the pin comment. notice i do not indicate this will hav eany effect on your geometry issue.
