Heavy Duty Attachment For 3-Pt Hitch
Roger W. Wessels, Fairbury, Ill.: "I haven't used the original drawbar on my Deere 4640 since I installed this heavy-duty attachment on the 3-pt. hitch. It allows me to level my 24-ft. field cultivator, disc and other implements on the go, which is a time and back saver.
"I used a length of railroad rail 10 in. wider than the original 3-pt. hitch for the main bracket. It's welded to 12 square steel plates approximately 5 in. sq., six plates per side. Four plates are slightly shorter and weld to a round bar and rail. It secures the drawbar hitch attachment to the 3 pt.
"A stair-stepped double vertical member serves as the hitch connection. A couple angle braces complete the attachment.
"Cost was minimal. The scrap iron I used came out of an old printing press."
