How To Help Remove Clip Pins From A Tractor Drawbar
"The screwdriver I used happened to have a rubber handle so it really works good. The screwdriver's long stem really comes in handy if I have to reach under the drawbar. I mounted a small I-hook on my tractor's rear fender so I can keep this tool with the tractor all the time. Most of the time when I pull a clip pin out it stays on the screwdriver. If I drop the pin on the ground I can just reach down and hook it without having to remove my gloves.
"Another idea - I mounted a plastic no. 3 coffee can on one of the tractor's rear fenders, where I keep extra pins and bushings for Cat. I drawbars when I change to different implements. I drilled several 3/8-in. dia. holes in the bottom of the can to let any water drain out. This way I always have the pins and bushings handy and don't have to look for them when I need them."
