I'm getting a B2650. Dealer called and said it was ready. I went by to check it out and noticed that the holes were not close to being lined up. So it hasn't left the dealer yet.Easy pin up requires that the deck be properly installed and adjusted.
Not all dealers do this.
I had the exact same problem. I had been using a jack to lift up the mower to pin it up. It was a real PITA! Along with that, the brackets in front of the mower where bending open and I almost lost the mower one day. I called my dealer and they picked up the tractor, replaced the brackets and re-adjusted the mower deck. It is now perfect. When I lift the deck up all of the way, the pinsAnyone else have issues with the holes to pin the mmm up not lining up real well? Whats the trick to pin it up?
I take mine off after the last mowing of the year for snow removal and put it back on for the first mowing of the year and it stays on all Summer unless I need the extra clearance in the woods. I would not enjoy taking it off and on every time I use my box blade, tiller, rake harrow or any other implement. Pinning it up is a great function in my book. My 2 cents worth.Mine arrived with the mower pinned up. I'll probably never pin it up again, as I prefer to just have the mower off if I'm doing other things. But yeah, on mine one pin was somewhat easily removable, but the other was very tight to get off.
I'm more worried about the front hanger. It seemed like that thing had some flex that wouldn't allow the pins get all the way through far enough to get the retaining rings through. I'm thinking I may need tools or help when it's time to reinstall.
