Spring-loaded forward lift link

Mid-mower lift system
 
The forward lift link is installed on the deck. It is spring loaded, allowing the link to connect automatically to front hangers (installed on tractor).
The PTO drive-shaft design allows the shaft to automatically adjust as the female end of the PTO coupler engage with the male end of the gearbox coupler. The male end coupler has tapered guides to ensure engagement of both ends.
 
 
 
Mid-mower lift system options
 
Standard mechanical mower lift
 
The standard mechanical mower lift system moves the mower in conjunction with the rear implements. To update an existing mechanical lift to a hydraulic lift, order BLV10739 and LVB26206. To update an existing mechanical lift to an independent hydraulic lift, order BLV10739 and BLV10688.
 
Optional hydraulic mower lift
 
The optional hydraulic mower lift system allows the mower to be raised and lowered independently of the rear implements. It uses the dual selective control valve (SCV) (loader joystick) to lift the mower deck. To update an existing hydraulic lift to an independent hydraulic lift, order BLV10688.
 
Optional independent hydraulic mower lift
 
The optional independent hydraulic lift system allows the mower to be raised and lowered independently of the rear and front implements. It operates using a rocker switch mounted on tractor, located by operators left knee.
 
NOTE: The attachments for the independent hydraulic lift system contain updated components and installation instructions.
 
To install independent lift with the power beyond kit, order LVA18446 from Parts Distribution Center (PDC) to replace line from the power beyond kit. One line from the lift kit (LVA16955) and one line from the power beyond kit (LVA17274) will be removed and replaced by the new line.
