Customer Question
My 3 point hitch...

My 3 point hitch will no longer raise and lower, when I move the adjuster arm.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

25D New Holland. Boomer Series.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, trying to fix myself. Tried playing with the adjuster linkage, tried standing on the 3 point hitch to break it free.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

It was low on hydraulic fluid when it happened and I topped it off with 2 gallons of fluid.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Great. What do I do now?

Was lift working before you added the fluid? Is the knob in the end of the three-point housing loose and not tightened all the way in?

it was working before I added the fluid. Not sure of any knob at the end of a housing...
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

right under the seat is a knob, if it is screwed in, lift will not raise or lower. # 11 in the link below.

That knob is in mid position and I tried in other positions and with no effect.

# 2 is the diverter valve, are you getting fluid to the three-point housing? link below.
