    Default is there a drawbar lock for telescoping 3pt arms

    I have a deere 5320 with telescoping lower 3pt arms and I use the drawbar to get the boat to the river because the ramp we have you can not use a truck. The only problem is that the draw bar rotates and I had the trailer to pop off the ball yesterday. I know that tractor supply sells draw-bar locks but do they work with the Deere telescoping lower 3pt arms?

    Not sure if this works with telescoping ones or not??? - I don't think so

    To answer the question ... yes.

    I would use the straight draw bar that is standard with the tractor. Just bolt the ball on the end. No need to use the 3pt at all.

    Any drawbar locks i have seen do not work with telescoping links. I use a three point trailer mover from norther tool. Was like 150 bucks. Its like a trailer hitch that mounts to the three point

    Oops on Edit, I didn't read your question correctly, It's two different things... the Tractor Supply link is different from the photo. I don't think the Tractor Supply thing will work but the EZMover (which is in the photo) should... below is more information about that. They are a TBN Sponsor...



    Yea, there's always a security thing with the store here??? Try this link EZmover Tractor Hitch-Drawbar Hitch same company but it $10 bucks more... if you can call them and let them know you are from TBN (and that the store here has "issues") they may give you the $10 bucks off... worth a try. Also, if you can weld, I made one for a friend, it's a fun welding project

    Here's the ad:

    Instantly Transform Your 3-Point Hitch Into a Versatile Towing Hitch! If you own a compact tractor and a trailer of virtually any kind, the EZmoverョ Hitch System will allow you to use your tractor to tow any trailer you ordinarily tow with a truck! Read on...
    Product Description Your compact tractor is a fantastic tool that is capable of so many productive tasks. But if you have a trailer and want to tow it with your compact tractor, well, that can make your tractor feel like a duck out of water. Unless you have a EZmoverョ Hitch System, that is!
    What is the EZmoverョ Hitch System?
    In simple terms, the EZmoverョ Hitch System is a trailer hitch receiver that mounts to your 3-point hitch top link and horizontal drawbar. When your 3-point hitch is raised, the hitch point is raised. When it is lowered, so is the hitch point. A simple technology that saves a lot of time, aggravation, and makes for safer trailer connecting and disconnecting.
    Easier Trailer Connecting & Disconnecting
    The traditional fixed drawbar under the belly of a tractor is difficult to connect a trailer to; When connecting to a drawbar, operators put themselves at risk for back injuries, pinched fingers, and a variety of other dangerous injuries depending on the situation.
    The EZmoverョ Hitch System avoids all that trouble and aggravation by utilizing your tractor's hydraulics to position the hitch receiver exactly where you need it for connecting or disconnecting a trailer. You can line everything up right from the operator's seat, which makes for a much safer hook-up!

    Designed to use with Pickup Inserts
    The EZmoverョ Hitch System uses 2" square tube receiver technology, which allows you to insert various types of connecting mechanisms, including balls, pins, pintle hooks, and any other connector that fits into a 2" square tube receiver.
    Simply remove the towing insert from your truck or SUV hitch receiver and insert it into the EZ-Mover receiver! Yes, it's THAT EZ!

    EZmoverョ Moves the Connection Point Back
    When the EZmoverョ Hitch System is attached to your 3-point hitch, the connection point is moved back considerably from where it would be on the drawbar. This allows you to alley dock trailers, or back into tight spaces with ease!
    Safety Chain
    The EZmover adapter tube has the provision for hooking up a safety chain from the top of the adapter to the fixed drawbar. All items to make up the components of the chain are available at any hardware store (chain not included with your order).
    Please note: The EZmoverョ manufacturer makes no recommendations on the use or application of the chain with respect to the EZmoverョ hitch. The use of chains on the EZmoverョ or any 3-pt receiver hitch could result in damage to the fixed or horizontal drawbar or other parts of the tractor. You should always follow your tractor & trailer safety recommendations for maximum weight and load distribution and use caution when trailering single axle utility trailers on uneven terrain.
    Patented Technology
    The EZmoverョ Hitch System is manufactured under United States Patent#5690182. The EZmoverョ Hitch System is the original and trusted hitch attachment for your tractor; Don't accept low-quality knock-offs!
    Satisfaction Guarantee
    It is highly unlikely that you will be dissatisfied with the EZmoverョ Hitch System. But if for any reason you're dissatisfied, we've got you covered.
    The EZmoverョ Hitch System comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If for any reason you are unhappy with the system and would like to return it, just contact the manufacturer within 30 days of your order to return the item for a full refund less shipping & handling charges.

    Warranty The high-quality EZmoverョ Hitch System will stand up to many years of even rough use. But if for some reason there is a defect in your EZ-Mover Hitch System, it comes with a full 1-year replacement warranty.
    Shipping Information
    The shipping charge for the EZmoverョ Hitch System is $20 for UPS ground shipping (Continental U.S.A.).
    After you order, your EZmoverョ Hitch System will be sent to you direct from the factory (distribution centers in Washington, and Maine). Orders are usually shipped within 24-48 hours via UPS ground service, with expected delivery times of 3-4 days, depending on your location.

    Northern sells one as well.

    The bottom accepts a 2" receiver drawbar but it doesn't look as heavy duty as the one teg posted. For the money I think you could make one pretty easy. After all do you even need the 2" receiver part of it?
