    Default Crossbars

    Went out looking for a crossbar for my NH 1720. Now I'm not tractor expert and that's why I'm posting here. I asked the sales people at two stores about crossbars and no one had any answers. I found a Cat 11 32 inch crossbar at C&T for $32.00. My questions are do they come in different lengths and if so why? What about the pin hole diameters can they be different also? Maybe 32 inch's is a universal size!!!
    The reason for purchasing a crossbar is so I can offset a roller behind the tractor and hook up a light trailer/wagon. Of course I haven't found a wagon yet or researched out how to build one. But that's a later post[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
    Thanks and have a great day,
    Al

    Alan,
    Any farm supply store should be able to get you one. They come in all different sizes so you should be able to find the right one. In the midwest Farm & Fleet, Theisen's, Blain's farm stores all have them. If you don't have any of those I'm pretty sure that Tractor Supply has them too and they are an internet company as well as physical stores. Just do a search for them and you will find them. They come in different lengths because depending on your tractor or your use you may need a different size.

    John, I agree; hadn't heard it called a "crossbar", but it does seem to me that it needs another name since you have the "drawbar" sticking straight out the back of the tractor between the lower links and then you have the "drawbar" that fits across between the lower links. One of them needs a new name.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I thought the one sticking straight out was called a "Swinging Drawbar" and the other that goes between the links was a regular drawbar. Either way, I agree a better name would make it a lot easy. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Dave, some tractors (usually bigger ones I guess, like my neighbor's big old Oliver) actually do have a "swinging drawbar". It's hinged with a pin at the front end and the rear end can swing side to side a considerable distance, or there are pins that can be inserted to hold it in any position you want. I hadn't heard anyone call our fixed drawbars "swingers", but who knows, maybe that's what they're supposed to be called.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]
