I have a 9N And Im trying to get control of my brush hog. Where can I get this Zane Thang or something like it. I had sent a check to Zane and have not heard back on it at all. Any help would be much appreciated

Chains do not stop the sideways movement of an implement.

Yes.

Chains do not stop the sideways movement of an implement.

While factory check chains limit the sideways movement of lift arms, to keep them from hitting your tires, they do not keep the implement from swaying.

The 9N & 2N only had DRAFT CONTROL and if hydraulics are worn will have issues with holding implement up. The Zane Thang or Red Rock unit adds POSITION CONTROL to those models; the 8N and later had Position Control built in. Limiter Chains will help on any system if hyd is worn and won't hold. STABILIZER BARS are advised to use with any mower or back blade. Don't confuse with STAY BARS -two different animals and uses for each. Jim shows limier chains and STABILIZER BARS in his photo below. STABILIZER BARS, or Anti-Sway Bars, require adding special brackets underneath the fender bosses. New kits use angle iron brackets. You need to know how they are set correctly and then once set LEAVE THEM alone. They will be set for any implement that uses them and no need to invest in an 'adjustable' bar. Jim's setup also shows he added check chains to keep his STAB BARS with the lift arms when not in use. Otherwise there is no hassle when attaching an implement and stab bars. You might want to consider adding an ORC as well. It will save you from driving into fences, trees, ditches, lakes, or fence posts.

Would you need the stabilizer / sway bars to stop the sideways motion of the mower with these limiter chains installed ? Sometimes it is a pain to hook up the sway bars when changing implements . I have an adjustable set that helps but I thought about building a pair made from chains since you could hook up the short side first and the long side once you picked up the implement and could push it back to center . where I store my implements has a slight slope . seems like this limiter chain would keep it close to centered ?

I use the chains on my 8n and they sure make mower a lot better. takes the pressure off of the hyd also.

Zane passed away sometime back. Google Red Rock Engineering, they offer a similar set up.
The easiest and most positive way to control bush hog cutting height is to use limiter chains. They are readily available from various sources or they are easy to fabricate yourself.
