Smile B series Three Point Hitch compatibility

hi, first off, this is a great site and a credit to all who've made it happen, the quality of content is amazing. So, onto my question. I've just bought a B6000 without a 3PH and wanting to get one. I've found a wrecker who has them for a B7100 and B6100. Are either compatible? Are there extra brackets or such I might need to ask specifically for?

thanks, Ben

You should latch onto that 3 point, either one will work. Make sure that you also get the upper 3 point hitch "top link" bracket. It's the bracket with 3 position holes for the top link. Your B6000 will only have a "chain" holder where that bracket should be.

If you get into trouble let me know. I have a complete new 3 point and new Kubota top link bracket from a B6100.

hi,
thanks for the response, much appreciated. I have another related question. Could the rear be missing any other parts around the PTO judging from the picture below? Sorry for the image size and quality. Also, I guess there's no way to test out the hydraulics without adding a 3 point hitch? I haven't managed to get out to the tractor yet, but will have the weekend for a good look around it.



thanks so much,
Dookanooka

Thumbs up Re: B series Three Point Hitch compatibility

Hey Guys, GREAT FORUM! Really informative and enjoyable. Along the same lines of this topic, I have an old 5100 that which needs 3PH hard ware. It is classified as Cat. 1 and I am finding 2 different lengths: 28" lower arms with 20-25" lift arms and top link OR 23" lower arms with 15-19" lifts and top link. From what I can tell, the shorter hardware seems to be correct for my tractor but anyone know for sure? Thanks, Doc

Shorter arms are correct.

Dookanooka, looking at that photo it looks like the PTO stub shaft is covered by a protective sleeve???? or cover???, and I'm not seeing any arms attached to the rockshaft, or a rockshaft for that matter!

Any chance of uploading a few more pics of greater clarity??

hi SD Vic,
thanks for taking a look for me. I got the tractor for a great price and she runs beautifully, but this might be her Achilles Heal? It would be great to know exactly what i'm up for installing.

As you can see, what you thought was some kind of cap is the previous owner being overzealous with a paintbrush, I think it's undercoat.

cheers,
Dookanooka

Hey dookanooka It looks like you are missing a few things. This a pic of my b7200 but you can see whats missing on yours. Not a very good pic.
