Spring Keeps 3 Pt Arms Away From Tractor Tires
Irked by the 3-pt. arms of his Deere tractors swinging into the tractors' rear tires, George Hamatani, of Clarksburg, Cal., developed DARTS a Draft Arm Retention Torsion Spring which solves the problem.
The spring mounts where the arm hinges off the tractor and puts tension on the arm to keep it from swinging against the tire. You unsnap the spring when you want to hook up to 3-pt. implements.
To install on Deere tractors (row model 2950 and smaller) remove the collar on the end of the draft sensing shaft and install the new collar. Next, slip the spring holder, washer and snap ring on the bushing.
The procedure is basically the same for mounting on larger Deere tractors except you need to weld a stub shaft to the draft arm pin. The spring sells for $35.95.
