Does the top link on a three point hitch have any effect on the cutting height of a brush hog. The cutting height on my brush hog changes and I don't know why. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1951 8N

If it really is an 8N, then there is a lever under the seat that switches from draft control to position control on the hydraulics...

Lever has to be in the straight up position for 'position control'...Use 'draft control' when ploughing...

Get or build yourself a set of limiter chains...

They run from the toplink (you still NEED the rigid link) position to the hog deck or pins...You set the height you want with the chains and then lower the hydraulics all the way...The chains will keep the hog at your set height and you can still lift the hog if need be...

What type of tractor do you have? If you have a tractor with draft control then it is doing what it is supposed to do. If you have a tractor with position control and you have it in the correct mode then the position control is not working.

A tractor with draft control does not make a good mowing tractor for that reason.

I enjoyed your website Mike & glad you bothered to make one. I'd encourage the rest of you to build a website too - somethimg that tells the world a bit about you and your interests. A website offers some kinda stability on an ever-changing internet & chances are, you aready HAVE a Frontpage program in your computer & your server already offers like 5000 megs of free online storage to put it, all you need to buy is maybe a $30 FTP program to load it over from your computer to the server's. If you're interested in looking into building your own website, here's an example Page Work and here's the website that i built. My website
Have fun! :)

WS_FTPlite used to be free...dunno if it still is or not...

Yes, WS_FTP LE is still free - "WS_FTP LE is shareware, available for free to educational users, government employees (U.S. local, state, federal and military) or to non-business home users only." (from the download site)

Here's the download address:

More recently, I've been using and liking EFTP (Encrypted File Transfer Protocol), also a free (for non-corporate users) FTP program. Its address is:
