Dan, I have a 1953 Super C with the factory 2 point fast hitch which has down pressure and might have been the first tractor model with that feature. I can give you a couple of places where that feature is certainly very handy. One, you can place a block of wood under the drawbar and lift the back of the tractor off the ground to adjust wheel spacing to to remove a tire and rim. Second, when using a post hole auger it is a way to control how fast the auger can dig into the ground. When digging a post hole and a tree root or large rock is encountered the auger without down pressure will "screw itself" into the ground and will take considerable manual effort to extract the auger from the hole. A lot of people think the down pressure is great to force the auger into hard ground and that might be true but where I live I'm concerned with an auger getting stuck in the ground wrapped around an unmoveable object and having to hand twist it back out with a pipe wrench or similar tool. I control the speed at which it is fed into the soil with the down pressure control I have with the fast hitch. Hope this helps, Hal.
P.S. Where in Missouri are you located as I'm down near Rolla - my email is open as well.

Hal, sounds like Dan T and Old are neighbors. I'm still holding things down here on the East Coast of Mo (Cape Girardeau Co).Tom

Tom, Nice to see your post - hope all has been going well and I'm still trying to get over losing Jimmy King. He used to stop by the house about once a year when up here visiting Alice's family. Trust you are getting through the winter all right but we still need some more moisture in the ground around here. A couple of inches the other day got the creeks running again. Be careful out there if you are still driving those big rigs, Hal.
