Was going thru archive and saw something about how to keep 3 point hitch from drifting on my 9n. Thi drives me crazy when I'm using a brush hog and I use a chain to keep it at a certain height. In the archives was reading a about a Zane thing by the author Zane but I could not open it up to see what it was? Does anybody know what this is or is Zane still out there the post was from 2003 thanks

Unfortunately, Zane is no longer with us. His device works well!
I'm not willing to part with mine. Red Rock Manufacturing sells
a device that does a similar function if that will help you.
A bit pricey though.

Red Rock Manufacturing makes a position control kit for the 9N and 2N.

I don't know how similar it is to the Zane Thing, as I've never over never had any experience with either device, or a 9N or 2N, for that matter, I'm an "8N-only" guy.

I don't get what you mean by "a chain". A set of limiter chains uses a chain on each side. Exactly what drives you crazy?

I have an 8N and I use a brush mower on it with a set of limiter chains. What's to drive one crazy? The limiter chains keep the mower at a certain height. My 8N has position control and will keep my implement at the height that I set it but I choose to use limiter chains. That way, I can leave the control lever all the way down and the hydraulics do not have to do any work like keeping the mower at a certain height because the chains do that. I can still use the control lever to raise the mower if I want to.

I have heard nothing but good things for Zane's "thang" on this forum but I have never needed one. It would be a good thing for you if you could find one. But in the mean time a set of limiter chains should solve any problem you have.

I have the Red Rock version, it works great. I was going to get one from Zane but he passed away before I got a chance to get one from him.

Aw c'mon Royse. I wouldn't call $110 that pricey. It's not that much to pay for position control. You 9N and 2N guys will really like getting position on your tractor.
