: Having my first experiences with an old Farmall, what were the advantages of the swinging drawbar? I have a hard enough time manuvering mine backwards hooked to the regular drawbar. Any insight into the intended function of this would be great. Thanks everyone!
If you were doing soil preparation such as disking, harrowing etc
and dragging unmounted implements you want the drawbar to swing for ease in tight corners.
Some pull implements also reguired and off-set to the drawbar so you could lock it right or left of center.
Basically the swinging allows tighter corners before the implement rides up on the rear tire.
