Is there a way to Pin the mid mount mower up on the lx2610 so I can use the 3 point without dropping the mower? I know there is a bracket for the mid mount arms so they don't hang once the mower is off the tractor but I don't think they work while the mower is on.

What is everyone doing for this?

Do you have a height adjustment knob? If you set that knob to the highest number the mower will stay at that height when you lower the 3pt.

Yes. I believe I tried that and it locked the whole 3 point and mid mount out. I will look again and see if it is operator error. I have only had it for a few days.
Thanks for the reply.

That height adjustment knob on mine will restrict the 3pt movement downward when the knob is placed on any number other than 0, but it still allows for some 3pt downward movement depending what number I have it set on. I don't know if your model works the same as mine but it is worth a try to see what you get.

I will give it a go. It’s probably something I’m doing wrong

Like the B2650/3350, the LX2610/3310 use terrain following MMMs.

There is no height adjust knob.

Yes.

Instructions are in the mower (not tractor) Operator's Manual.

There is a way to pin up the deck to use the 3 point hitch. I haven't tried it on mine yet but here is a video for the very similar B2650 that I found on YouTube.

I’ve used it on my B1800 and it works well keeping it from dropping down. If I’m gonna use the rear 3pt, I’m pulling the deck off. Pain but it keeps it from getting banged up and making a mess. That being said, the deck rarely comes off. Paved surfaces are at a premium here and fighting that deck on gravel sucks

I have used the MMM deck "lockup" clevis pins on my B2650 with a the 60 MMM, and it worked as it should, preventing the MMM from moving down when the three point is lowered. Just guessing, but I would think that you would use the same pins. Mine are a stock number 75599-51525. I had to buy them, because I had put them away for "safe keeping" , and you can guess the rest of the story.

Same setup to lock the deck on a LX2610. Got the proper bolts from my dealer when the tractor was delivered.

Works as intended on my B3350 but did not as delivered.

Something is not right with your installation.

On my LX2610 they did not line up as delivered. Resetup the mower deck and adjusted as needed(way off). Also drilled out the brackets and mower mounts about 1/32 of an inch, and went with a slightly smaller clevis pin for easy installation/removal. HTH's

I've been pinning up the belly mower on my B1700 now for 24 years, but wear and tear on the mower brackets has caused misalignment of the pin holes several times, so I had to make some adjustments to the adjustment directions in the owner's manual to make it all line up again. Specifically, as the front link and the brackets it attaches to wear, the correct length as pointed out in the manual doesn't work any longer. So the right adjustment is to adjust this link in combination with the rear lift rods until it all lines up correctly. with the mower touching or almost touching the underside of the tractor at the pin location. When done properly, no jack is needed to get the pins in and out; they slide easily, with just a bit of grease and perhaps a gentle up and down shaking of the deck to help them along.

The pins shipped with my 1996 vintage tractor were atrociously difficult to secure, as they were clevis pins with spring R-clips securing them on the inside. I found some longer pins with spring loaded detent balls near a tapered end and a ring connected to the outer end; I attached a looped nylon cord around the ring and they easily pop in and out now.
