tractor implement hitch help!

I have a bush hog that has what I describe as a swivel eye connctor on it, it looks similar to the swivel eyes on top links. This drops down goes over a pin in the rear of the tractor hitch. This allows the bushhog to swivel up/down/sideways on my hills without binding.

My tedder and rake have the traditional "U" shaped connectors wich you put around the tractor tongue and drop a pin through. But they are constantly breaking and needing welding repairs when I go up and down hills.

I am trying to find some of the "swivel eye" connectors on a shaft that I could weld onto my implements. I might be calling this system the wrong thing, as I haven"t been able to locate anything like what I am looking for - I was hoping I have described it well enough someone here might know where to look -

thanks!

Aren't you pulling your rake and tedder with the 3 point drawbar? If not, yes, you may break or bend the hitches or the pins...

I have used the hitch for a John Deere 510 baler for a couple drag scrapers that i built they work good you can bolt or weld them on.

He wants to adapt a hitch like my Hesston baler and haybine have on them, where you run the bolt and nut through the drawbar. The ball lays flat on the drawbar and lets the implement rotate on the ball.

Hi: I would think you could use the weldable 3 pt. hitch balls to make the hitch.

Your description is a bit lacking. You mention a plate bolted to your tractors drawbar. Do you remove it when you try to hook on your implement, so you can drop a common draw pin through the U shaped clevis holes and the big hole in the tractor drawbar. If not that's your problem. The make and models of tractor and implements with pics. would be far more helpful. Also I suggest you read your manuals, as it appears you are a newbee to farm equipment.

Thanks, that does help! I can try that if nothing else. I am an ok welder, but would prefer to find something like those with a good flat surface already attatched to make cutting/welding easier rather than have to try to cut and weld the curved shape.

I do some horrid terrain along my road and water ditches and have never bent a hitch up - can't you just use a thinner hitch pin? Lot of 7/16 or 1/2 inch bolts get used around here for smaller loads like that, allow a lot of flex on the hitch? The 2pt multi-holed bars some use are terrible for a hitch, use the tractor's drawbar or get a proper hitch that sticks out a bit, not that bar with a bunch of holes in it - those bust up hitches all the time, you can't turn short. Only hitch I ever broke was going over a drop-off on my bridge with a manure preader with a hitch pin the same size as the holes. A sloppy pin should let things work out on light loads like a rake?

Many mo-cos or haybines use that style of hitch you talk about, you'd maybe find a model that has a bolt-on setup and find at a salvage yard if you want to go that route.
