    Default Tow Bar

    Hi Guys,
    I built a tow bar (that's what I call it) for my tractor and have used it for over 2 yrs. I bought a landpride quick hitch in Dec. I have so many implements that get swicthed all the time. My tow bar won't fit my quick hitch, so I need to build a new one. Is there a market from this item? it is to good to cut it up.
    I use it to move trailers around the yard, pull fence post's as well as alot of other chores. There is two places to put receivers (the same type a PU truck uses)out of the way.

    the bott bar is made of 1/4 x3 x3 angle and other is 3/16 x 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 angle. I have never bent it and it's had alot of heavy use.

    Nice welding! Do you tow army tanks?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    But... why don't you just use a cat 1 or cat 2 drawbar and just mount the different size ball's you use on it. You can install it on your quick hitch in seconds and about $15. - $30. total cost. (without towballs)

    This tow bar has spoild me to say the least. this one is to narrow to fit my quick hitch. I use 2" and 2 5 /16" balls as well as a farm hitch. I have 7 trailers I move around with the tractor (much faster than useing my 3/4 ton PU) back under raise 3 point and go. I have even hung suitcase weights of the top of it, great for useing log chains. The drawer bar is a good idea but I need the top link hooked to it as well. I fact I started to build a new one today useing a cat draw bar off of a 8N. Besides I don't think I had $50 of material in the last one I made. Never pulled a tank but it has alot of tree's.

    I'm sure that I saw something comparable advertised in a Northern Tool catalog a while back. It looked interesting, but it was priced at about $200 so I didn't follow up on it. I built one myself using a stock drawbar and flat iron, but it sure doesn't look as good as the one you have.

    DDT,that looks like it is a very well made and handy attachment. You might consider one modification. Drill a hole in the 3 x 3 so that you can insert a pin to secure the spare receiver so it will not bounce out and get lost.
