Had the pull-type brush hog behind the SC, heard a noise and looked back and saw only the front half of the spinning drive shaft connected to the tractor. The brush hog was sitting back there in the field with the blades still spinning. It's a good thing I didn't have a load of hay behind me headed down a hill.

I lost one on my 1030 hauling about 200 bushels of dry shelled corn in about 1982.
I was hauling it to our shed to store it, I was in road gear I heard the draw bar hit the ground on a curve in the road and next thing I knew it passed me and stayed on the road for a while then went into the ditch and flipped over! It just came unbolted, don't know why we never messed with the drawbar before.
We used thread seal on it after that and gave it a little weld too.

Did the drawbar break or did it come unbolted from the belly of the tractor??

Drawbar came unbolted, nut came off. I'm not sure how it was originally attached from the factory. I drilled a hole through the bolt and put a cotter pin in it this time so the nut can't come off. The nut also came off the seat spring. I found it on the floor board. That bolt had a hole in it for a cotter pin, but none was in it.
