I recently purchased a 180. The person I puchased if from never used the 3-point hitch. Currently the 3-point is at the highest point, and I can't get it to move, either up or down. I am hoping there is something simple that I am not doing. Since the previous owner never used the lift, he does not know what the height set and power distribution levers do. The hydraulic rams are all the way out, for maximum lift, and painted over, so I know they have not been used for a number of years. I hope someone can tell me what I am missing. I purchased a service maunal, but I don't know how to 'use' the lift system. Any and all help appreciated.

 Got it down, now how do I get it to raise? in reply to Mike Weimer, 03-25-2005 20:25:18  
Thanks for the suggestions. I managed to get the lift to go down, the rams were painted over, and need a little convincing to go down. No that the lift is down, with a little extra weight from me, it will not raise back up. When I move the lever to the lift position, I hear a click and whining noise under the valve control box. Any suggestions now? I have moved the traction boost / depth controls to all positions, no help. Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

We bought a 190 XT 2 years ago with the same exact problem. It had been sitting for seven years, with the 3-
point down and when we started it we lifted it up and it wouldn't go back down. Our problem turned out to just be rust on the lift cylinders, so there is a really good chance you have the same problem. We finally got ours to move by putting a bale spear on in the up position and backing into a bale on a trailor, driving forward then lowering the bale. It went down real slow but it did go down. That didn't end the problem but after a couple hundred bales we had it working smooth again. I would only suggest doing this if you have expelled all other options though.

Is it a 190 or a 180. If it is a 190 put the two levers that are to the right of your sit all the way down. If this does not work. If you are standing in the back of your tractor, on the right side under your fuel tank I believe in front of your fuel bulb you will see a piece, it looks similer to the peice you would stick a jack handle into. If it is all the way up it needs to be in the down postion. When moving it down becareful because the rod will bend or bow as you are moving it downward. If this does not work e-mail me I have one more thing to try. It is much to detail to go into unless you need me to. If you want you can e-mail me your phone number and I can call and try to explain it in more detail. Nathan
