    I use them but only problem is u need
    so kind of anti-roll device if using a ball
    type hitch.
    Also trailer can push up on hitch if not
    enough tongue weight.
    There are plenty of posts on this before.

    Try this thread:

    How you would ever use this on a quick hitch is a mystery to me, because it seems it would get really complicated.

    I do not want to take the quick hitch off since I use this a great deal. I was hoping the cross bar would attach at the lower two points the same way any other impliment would attach [img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]. Thanks for the information [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Von,
    are those what you call pittmen instead of sway chains on the inside of your lower links? I wish I had a setup like that. Where did you get those? Solid instead of flexible, good for pushing with rear blade backwards.

    Grub, Those are standard on kubota's B2710-29. They have been fitted to many of the smaller B's by their owners. I think this is the same set up on some of the NH's as well.

    The draw bar would attach in 2 lower
    links, does your Q-T have sleeves that
    go over the lower links.
    What are u going to pull w/ drawbar?

    There are sleves that go over the lower links. Would like to be able to pull a small trailer that I used with my old lawn tractor.

    Grub
    If your chains are adjusted snug on each side, they will function the same as the solid when pushing on a rear blade. But both sides need to be snug.

    My Deere 4300 has the solid. And they are easier to get snug than are chains.
