Guys, I have a couple of questions.

I fired up the DGT6K last night for the first time. Part of the owner's manual says I need to 'bleed' the automatic transmission.
It tells me to pull out the pin so that the tranny is disengaged, then put it in fwd for 5 seconds, then rev for 5 seconds. The problem is, I cannot get the lever to move into the fwd or rev position while that pin is pulled out? Anyone know why? And do I really need to do this step?

Also, I attached the manual sleeve hitch, no problemo. However, I noticed that there is a lot of free play side to side. It seems the 3 clevis pins do not hold tight and therefore the hitch is sloppy. Have I assembled something wrong, or is there usually a lot of free play?

thanks

It just occured to me I may have been stepping on the brake at the same time. (duh!)

I am used to driving the manual LTX1000 six speed. Probably something just that dumb.

thanks
have a nice weekend.

Taking some getting used to NOT using the brakes. Causing some whiplash. :dazed:

Here she is ...





Was fooling around last night in the driveway. I know I've gotta get some weight on the back to really be effective, but it was just fun to play.

So far I am loving it.

Thanks Stewart!

PSRumors, I am about to make you and most of the other fellas cry. I have NOT even fired up the deck yet. :cry:

Oddly, the wife if not real happy about me having 2 tractors, and even though this one is for "business", I am not feeling the love and support I was hoping for ... seems too much seat time for me equals too little free time for her (kids).

Oh well, I gotta tell ya, I'm gonna enjoy this. :D

On the subject of that sleeve hitch. I have one and the clevis pins are a joke. Take them off and get a length of round bar stock (I welded to bolts together back to back, 15.5" long) so it extends out of either hole, put a washer on either side of the draw bar and drill holes in each end for clips. This resulted in a nice fit for me and it puts pressure straight back instead of pulling in from the corners. Thats just one way to do it.
