Adding 3 pt hitch to 427.10

Hey all, want some feedback on this project. Taking a complete 3 pt hitch of a Versatile 276 and adding it to the back of the mog. Adding pics soon, have some of the installation done already. Couple of questions though. On a 427.10 (no owners manual), what is the maximum lift capacity of the factory three point? With Michelin XML's (395/85r20 what do you run your pressure at?

Welcome aboard, the brocure lists the 427.10 (U1400) lift force at 44,000N
There are massive discussions about tires and tire pressures on the forum - the search tool is your friend :thumbsup

The folks here is pretty helpful, but searching helps because it helps you learn about things you may not want to learns about But then welcome to the world of mad mogs.

Oh, and photos - dont forget to post some photos of your beast ! It is a must.

Pics as promised and Krietpiel why is it listed as a 1400 when the original plate on the grill is 1200?

You may have a unique (paculiar ?) Mog. You will find Mercedes did not stick to a standard recipe and almost anything is possible with Mogs depending on what the original customer wanted. The u1200 should be a 424. What doeas your VIN number show ? You may want to try and get a build (data) card from MB. Some of the board members may be able to help if you ask nicely. That will tell you what the vehicle was about when it left the factory. Do you know if that lift is original ? I suspect it might not be in which case the 44kN I gave you may be meaningless.

No the lift is of a versatile tractor , what I want to know is what the rear frame will support so I do not overload it. The data plate on the mog is on the left hand side of the dash near the door pillar and says the model is a 427.10 and the serial has 427.10 in it as well. It was originally a street sweeper in Canada.

427.101 is indeed a U1200
a 427.102 would be a U1400


btw that is some serious hardware.
