I am now the proud owner of a TED20 with front loader, the trector was in good condition but the loader has major leaks, all now fixed. I have a small topper which now runs on an upgraded PTO.
I would like to tow trailers with the tractor but am struggling to find a suitable towing assembly.

Can anyone please advise.

For moving trailers around, I really like something like this:


It allows you to back up to a trailer and pick it up without using the jack. If you're moving it a short distance you never have to leave the tractor seat.

A simple flat plate with towball attached to the under side of the transmission casing is all that's needed if you don't need hydraulic lift for your trailers . Any metal shop can knock one up quickly and economically.
The attachment points are already there , four blind UNC threaded holes usually full of dirt or even painted over, look for them just forward of the pto shaft.
Half inch plate and a tow ball will pull any trailer and at a low level so flipping the trailer backwards is out of the question .
Be very careful attaching whatever you choose , the casting at the bottom of the blind holes is very thin , too long a bolt will pop off the end and cause a massive transmission oil leak . The original fasteners were studs , threaded in UNC at the transmission end and UNC at the attachment side.
One of the most useful and convenient hitches is the Ferguson Auto Hitch , this allows you to engage a ring hitch trailer from the driver's seat and raise it to transport height for travel, then lower it to disengage once finished .

I think what he's referring to as a "topper" is what we call a rotary cutter or "bush hog" on this side of the pond

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine.
