YM1500 3 point hitch

Postby Hnewman144 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 9:13 pm

My three point hitch slams down when I lower the lever while having an implement attached. There's no smoothly lowering. It just slams down hard. I've adjusted the knob under the seat but it had no affect. Is there anyway to slow this thing down while lowering a finish mower and other attachments?

The knob is not what you adjust for slow down. The roll pin handle on the side of the valve is what you move. https://www.hoyetractor.com/PROD/HV-451.htm

Winston have you ever messed with one of those roll pin adjustments on the side like that? Talked to a guy at hoye and he said that's not something you want to mess with if you don't have to?

If true, he told you wrong. You should adjust that pin for a 2 sec. drop. The knob is the "servicing stop valve" on your tractor, and should never be closed with engine running, lest you destroy your pump.

So would y'all recommend tweaking that adjustment? Any certain way to do that or just trial and error?

I think you will find there are 3 positions on it. I can't remember which way works toward slow or fast. Your not going to hurt it by moving it.

There must have been a misunderstanding somewhere. Norm is correct... as usual :) .

Thanks alot, I'll see what I can do with it. I've just about ruined the spindles on my finish mower because it drops so dang hard!

You learn something new every day! I thought it was the other way, knob vs lever.

:lol: that's where I live lol! I got it adjusted. There was nothing to it. Don't understand why some one would have had it sped all the way up
