    Looks like the vertical bar would bolt into the lower drawbar, side arms connect to 3pt side links. This would make it a fixed height so maybe only useful for moving a gooseneck? Doesn't seem as practical as the receiver tube models.

    Looks like a brain fXXt to me. Have seen some really neat ideas in here by some very talented folks. Some should take notes on the geometry of a tractor 3pt system and take some suggestions . We all have our personal needs and formulate our systems to that need. When you see something that is upside down and backwards, it really sets the standard lol.

    My only thought, the square tubing hanging under the ball would act as a counterweight that would keep the ball on the top.

    I could see this working. Imagine backing up to a trailer and catching the top of the ball and rotating it. You would have to climb off the tractor and rotate the ball back to the top. With the counterweight, it would self right the ball.

    This was what I was thinking, but was wondering what you guys thought. I had no intention of buying it, as I have the material to make one and haven't done it yet.

    The stem of the "T" goes down to the towed implement drawbar, keeping the ball at a set height and stopping twist. Probably made to fit a specific tractor, and not "generic." Maybe sized for a gooseneck trailer.
