You wouldn't be from Darlington, SC would you? M.T.?
I have an old Ferguson 35 and use a 3ph reese reciever type hitch (15 yrs). If you lock your trailer hitch on the ball in rare instances it might raise the 3ph up but with the ball locked it stays hooked and under control, out of your back. I wouldn't want to lose the automatic lifting power by going to a drawbar not on my 3ph. After you get the hitch, then you can make all kinds of tools to use in it also.
I built my first reciever hitch before I ever saw one anywhere. Thought it up myself. Next thing I knew was they were being made commercially and on the market.
