I would like to hook up my finish mower to it.Weighs 718 lbs.I will weight the front with hanging weights to compensate for the light narrow front end.Don't know if the hydraulic pump can handle it. I don't want to buy the 3 point and be disappointed.

Thanks for the help

Vito

Regarding my comment about a split rockshaft below....look at page 233 of Wendel"s AC Story. Shows the split rockshaft on a B-C mounted left and right plows. I believe it can be locked together so both cyl would lift a rear cultivator.

i have a wide front on my C. when doing some work, and power washing for a friend, i picked up a 5 foot finish mower, on a cherry picker, other call them boom poles i think. it was light in the front but it handled the load well.

My B will easily lift a 6" Landpride finish mower but even with about 250 pounds on the front end it is still pretty light. Mike

As others have said, it depends on the size of the cylinder. The stock lift cylinder was about a 1" bore. I knew someone who used a cylinder from a WD, which is over 1 1/2 " bore, so more than 4 times the volume. That was mounted on the front to lift a very heavy snowplow. Just remember that the larger the cylinder, the slower it will operate.

Greetings Vito, hope you're enjoying the snow. I have a three point hitch on my C. I don't even know who made it. It was the cheapest one I could find at the time. I use a light 5' Bush Hog on it without problem. I had gotten crazy and tried a heavy MC 7' flail mower. Had to do a little straightening and welding after that! You don't need to worry about the pump. As Old says, it's all about cyl. size. I would hope any aftermarket three point today would be designed and built with matching components. The part I don't like about mine is one lift cyl. I would sooner have one tiny lift cyl. on each end of the rockshaft, more like the WD was built.

Faded memory tells me that was available for the C- maybe with a split rockshaft for lifting two attachments separately. I don"t have a C parts book- will have son check my planter book that is at his place. Might show up in attachment options.

Yep. Sold a split rockshaft off a "B" with the two way plow and selector valve. Problem is with my "C" three point the rockshaft/cyl. combination came with it. I have altered and repaired it enough. It seems to handle the 5' bush hog OK.

A lot will depend on the cylinder that it would use. Also remember the Allis hyd systems used low GPM but high pressure so the cylinders you use need to match up to the high pressure. I tried my 3 point on a disk I have that is pretty heavy and it lifted it ok but because of the way the 3 point is set up didn't work well

Can not say for sure on it since I have never seen one. I built my own 3 point for my C and been thinking I need to modify it so it will work better
