Why? Is it the adjusters above the axle? Mine are too. Thats silly if that is all thats wrong. Do not believe that is a safety issue in my opinion if built strong enough and right. If this is who I think it is, this tractor and setup is just fine!

it's also silly to have to walk around the pull the rest of the day with squishy pants because the hitch broke and the front end stood straight up! That hitch could easily be converted to use adjuster bolts above and below the drawbar like the U hitch pictured below, pulling off the Farmall wishbone is another accident waiting to happen, NE Nebraska Pullers won't let you pull off of it, atleast not at Norfolk

Yes, top mounts for the adjusters. Have personally witnessed two hitch setups like this fail and have the tractor stand up on the tip bars. Luckily the drivers were unharmed.

We don't have a rule against it in our pull.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Look at the geometry. The lower attach points are behind the hitch point so a lifting chain has no leverage against those adjusters, which are of very adequate size. I have seen adjusters bent and front tires 8 feet in the air too, but the hitch point was a foot behind the support point and the supports were 1/3 the size of the ones in the picture. This same guy that went straight up had nice retractable wheelie bars and he had them retracted.
