Firgelli gets alot of requests for Actuators to be used in John Deere tractors for adjusting the hitch lift and many other moving parts on tractors. We also provide Actuators for snow blower chutes too. This project used a heavy duty Linear actuator with 1000 lbs force to adjust the hitch. the Actuator is pointing down for better waterproofing the actuator and it simply pulls up and down the hitch making it much easier to connect a trailer and also adjust the trailer height once connected.
in the image above you can see the hitch is in the up most position on the back of this John Deere Tractor
Above you can see the hitch is in the lowest point on the back of this John Deere tractor,
