This Cat 1 Top Link Arm (517-771mm) is vital to connect any implement with a Cat 1 top linkage to your sub-compact tractor. Each end unscrews to adjust for working lengths between 517-771mm.
The top link arm is necessary in order to keep the implement level while it is connected to the tractor linkage. Therefore, it must be checked for its positioning before the implement is used. Usually the correct length will be similar to that of the lower linkages. This can be adjusted using the provided adjusting rod in the hole at the centre of the arm.
The Cat 1 Top Link Arm (517-771mm) is easy to maintain. All it will need is lubrication on the screw thread, as well as in the pin holes. This will improve the longevity of the top link arm. It may need more frequent greasing in certain circumstances. For example, if it is kept in a damp place, or if the threads are often exposed to the elements.
Most of the implements available from FTS will require a Cat 1 top link arm. This includes, but not limited to, Flail Mowers, Side-Shift Mowers, and Topper Mowers. The Cat 1 to Cat 1 size fits most compact tractors, such as Iseki, John Deere, Kubota, New Holland, Foton, and Yanmar.
