How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

When a three point hitch will not go down, the most frequent cause is the hydraulic flow speed control valve, usually located between your knees under the seat, is closed with the knob closed all the way to its stop. Check this control and make sure that the valve is all of the way open.
Three-point hitches are composed of three movable arms. The two lower arms—the hitch lifting arms—are controlled by the hydraulic system, and provide lifting, lowering, and even tilting to the arms. The upper center arm—called the top link—is movable, but is usually not powered by the tractor`s hydraulic system.
A too-high hitch is very dangerous. When the hitch height is higher than the trailer, the trailer will tip backwards, unbalanced and wobbly. This poor weight distribution will result in a hazardous driving situation for you and others on the road.
The added downforce is engaged by depressing the rocker switch mounted in the right-hand fender. Depressing the switch activates pressure within the cylinders, which retracts the cylinder arm, pulling the hitch arms down, creating the additional down pressure on the 3-point hitch.
Having insufficient hydraulic fluid in your system causes cylinders to become hydraulically locked and unable to fully retract or extend. Worn seals can also cause misalignment issues between the seal and cylinder rod, which may cause trouble when retracting hydraulic cylinders. Preventing these issues is easy.
When air is present in a hydraulic system, the desired instant system reaction is slowed and results in a slower actuator response or a “spongy feel.” This is due to the compressible nature of the trapped air. The air contained in a system is alternately compressed and decompressed as the actuator is cycled.
Float Mode.

It allows the hitch to raise and lower with minimal resistance to allow the implement to follow the contour of the ground. To activate float mode, press the hitch control lever full forward, then downward, locking it into the float position.

We normally recommend at least 11” of clearance from the bottom of your LOADED trailer hitch ball mount to the ground, no less. That 11” of clearance gives you some leeway for bumps, dips, and slanted driveways so that you do not scrape the bottom of your hitch.
Most light duty trailers are 16-17 inches in coupler height, so we recommend ball mounts on the hitch pages that will give that particular vehicle 16-17 inches on the ball mount.

John Deere 4410 three point hitch will not raise. All linkage is intact, no I believe that there may not be hydraulic pressure, although the front loader does work. Recently changed hydraulic oil and filters, screen was clean.
ANSWER : Im sorry, I thought you said you changed the oil. My thought was that perhaps the hitch might have bled down during the oil change. That happens occasionally with the tractor I service at work.

I hope you find your trouble. If you could let me know the answer, id appreciate that.

How do I get to the points to check them on my 9N? I get no spark.
ANSWER : The breaker points are in the distributor, under the cap and rotor. Once you take the rotor off you’ll see the the shaft, down at the bottom of where you can see it, has a section that is almost square- this is the breaker point cam. When the shaft turns the breaker points open and close.Check the points with a multimeter or test light. They should close properly when the cam allows for them to, and they should show no reluctance to conduct electricity once they close. If they need to be cleaned the best thing is electric motor cleaner and fine sandpaper. Position the motor so that the points are closed, gently open them and insert the sandpaper (better to not fold it, just do one side at a time) and then pull it straight out. Do the best you can to control the grit released by the sandpaper, it’ll do your machine no good.Once the points are clean, dry and conducting electricity well you may need to set the gap. Rotate the motor so that the breaker point cam opens the points fully, loosen the screw that holds the breaker points and open/close them to the correct gap- if no factory settings are available .015″ is a good starting point.Put it together, it should run. The only problem with these old machines is the fact that quality spares are difficult or impossible to obtain today. When you were a kid (me too) these tractors were still earning their keep on a daily basis and spares such as breaker points were of the highest quality, but now any spares that can be found are generally of such low quality that you’re better off learning how to dress the points you have because they’ll still outlast many sets of new ones if cared for.lp
