I was using my bush hog today on my 1957 D14 and have a question I hope I can get answered. The terrain that I am cutting is very uneven, undulates up and down, formerly an apple orchard and very rough. I notice as I go over the "humps" the tractor rear wheels go down in the "valley" then as I come out the tractor goes over the "peak" but the bush hog front is now up in the air with the rear wheels of the tractor. This is OK but the bush hog does not go back down on level ground. It acts as though I have raised it with the hydraulics. I find myself constantly lowering the bush hog after each "hump" I cross, very annoying. Anything I can do to prevent this short of cutting the other direction, not very convienent?

When bush hogging with my D-17 (or other tractors), I use "limiter chains" which holds the 3 pt hitch at a preset level and doesn't let them drop any lower.

Hope this helps.
