Belly mount grader with fast hitch

Thu Oct 10, 2013 8:05 am

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I can't seem to find the right thread... I have a fast hitch, and I'm trying to figure out if my 54 grader will work as a mid-mount without any new parts. In the manual they have it pictured connecting to a "substitute drawbar" that bolts onto the finals. it looks to me like it might be able to bolt onto the fast hitch bail instead.. anyone ever done this or know if this will work?

Here is how it should be mounted.

And it must be the substitute drawbar with the fast hitch adapters:

There are detailed drawings of those parts on the manual server, I think listed under my name.

Thanks guys, looks like I'll have to make that bar... i think those right side brackets are actually still attached to the tractor!

For now i'll just keep using it on the front of the tractor. it works pretty well there anyways.
