I have owned my 8N for about 6 months, and have acquired a bush hog to mow my pasture till I get some livestock. Ok, I have read a lot about limiter chains on this board. I have also read the safty info on bush hogs. I have an over run coupler installed, and the sway bars installed. Now what about the limiter chains I have read about, where do they hook from and to? and can someone make them with some 1/4 inch chain, hooks and shackles .. or do I have to buy them?

You should not need limiter chains with the position control on the hydraulic lift. The mode lever which is the little lever unter the seat and on the right side should be in the up (Verticle) position for position control. If it is down (Horizontal) you have it in draft control mode and it will not stay put where you want it to stay. If the position control does not work anymore I have invented a device that you can install and it will allow you to have position control without doing any internal repairs on the lift.It installs in a matter on minutes and give good positive position control. Email me for details if you are interested.

Hey Zane
I see many posts and references to your Thang as relating to the 9 & 2 N's, But i have never seen any thing on mounting it to a 8'N. Is this just an oversite or an assumtion you don't need it if all's right with the 8'N. I'v heard so many good things about it it makes me want to go an buy a 9 or 2 just so i can get one.

Here is a link to a previous post from Ed G. which shows how you can make your own limiter chains. The chains run from the lift pins on either side of the implement(along with the lift arms and the sway bars) to the top link pin on the tractor, and are adjustable for length. The diagram explains all. You can also get them from Central Tractor.

However, if yours is an 8N, you have position control available on the hydraulics, which eliminates the need for the limiter chains (I think - someone please correct me if I'm wrong).

Hope this is helpful and good luck.

Where in NE are you? I'm near Weston.

Tekamah, 40 miles north of Omaha. Thanks for the info, seems like an awkward angle.

Greg and Lou--

Limiter chains have value, even on a tractor with position control, inasmuch as they take the load off the hydraulics. Here's a link showing the hookup points...

I made my own to relieve the work load on the hydraulics. Since I only use them on the bushhog, I bolted them to it. They won't get lost and are always where I need them. Steve
