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.

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 .

So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h
