When I got this tractor the PO had mounted a light duty 12 V winch on the back frame plate to lift and lower the sleeve hitch. This set up worked OK but was to fast to my liking. I run the cable through a pulley on the hitch and back up to the top of the back frame plate. This worked much better but also increased my power by 2. After breaking 2 cast aluminum pulleys by lifting it to the top and then some.I knew I had to do something different. Went to a steel pulley with 450 lb. weight capacity. Thin morning I installed a horn on the fender pan and a momentary push button switch at the bottom of the back plate on a spring steel strip of metal. With this set up the horn sounds before I over lift the hitch with a little lea way. A quick bump of the down button lowers it enough for the horn to stop. Now I can watch where I am going and not at the implement behind me when coming to the end of the rows near obstructions.
