We have 1993 Case IH 5140.  The 3-point hitch will not lower. With an airblast sprayer hooked it can easily lift the sprayer. But when lowering the sprayer, the hitch will only go down with the weight of the sprayer, and as soon as the sprayers rests on the floor, it will not continue to go down. We need 3 of us jumping on the hitch to get it to lower from there.

Mechanical bind due to incorrectly set sway blocks? That hitch control an adjustments are pretty complicated. Would only suggest doing it by the book and using the proper special tools. DIs-connect sprayer and if you can get hitch down, try manually raising it by hand, can you take it full cycle? If so then sounds like you are dealing with a control circuit / adjustment problem.
