Manual lift won't lock

Recommended Posts

Allis_B12
When I lift the snowplow on my tractor, the latch on the lift lever won't hold onto the edge of the lift quadrant while the tractor is in motion. This makes me have to pull on the lever to keep the plow in the air when I'm moving the tractor. The edge of the quadrant seems smooth. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

I added a notch on my B-112 too hold the snowblower about 1/2 inch off the ground. Used my 4 inch peanut grinder and just made a new notch. Also, check the roll pin that holds the latch onto the handle, mine has worked its way half out causing the latch to be sloppy. MPH

My 2110 had the same problem There is a piece,on the lift lever,that moves up and down with the lift button,that locks it in the quadrant. That piece had a groove worn in the bottom of it,from years of use. Had to get a different piece,off a parts tractor I have.

I also had the same problems as MPH and goatfarmer. Also have on my B-10 the lift lever work its way in so close that the piece that locks into the notches was rubbing on the side so hard it wouldn't lock down. May want to check that it is centered and seating all the way down. John

I'm having the same problem with my 416H lift. Looking at the quadrant it appears that the less worn quadrant slots have a slight hook near the top. Are you sure that filing the slots flat is the correct thing to do? (or am I mistaken about which slots are less worn)

Ha ha ha. Are you being chased by your tractor?
