I got to use my tractor for the first time today (managed to break the cultivator). The 3 point was weak and sluggish. I was reading about the hydraulic system and noticed that according to Pg 33 of the owners manual, there is a Lock Out Strap to use on the cylinder not in use. Does anyone have the measurements for the strap?

Apparently there's 2 of them, one for each cylinder and I think the 2 straps are different.

The strap should hold the cylinder in the retracted position, for the deck lift cylinder. Sorry, don't
have a dimension, but just measure pin center to center.

For the 3pt limiter strap, I think you'd want the cylinder extended, and then strapped.

Not having that on there will cause it to be slow for sure. Just make sure you make it strong enough to take the force without bending. The one that is installed with the cylinder extended will be in compression so needs to be strong.
