Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. First check the control valve for any debris and for proper operation to be sure that there are no restrictions and the valve moves freely as it should without damage. Also check your drop rate valve adjustment and for any trash or debris in the valve or ports. If all that checks out okay verify that you don't have any bent or damaged linkage causing the arms not to drop. If the valves check okay then check if it is sticking inside the cylinder from possible rust or corrosion if the tractor was sitting for a while without use of the hitch. If found the cylinder will need to be taken apart and cleaned up if it is not beyond the point of cleaning where replacement could be needed if excessively pitted or corroded. Check for these things and let me know the results and if we need to dig deeper into this. Please remember to take a moment to read my answers as that is how the say credits my time helping on the site. Five-star ratings in bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
