How much weight can I put on the draw bar

Hello. So this weekend I bought a Grain O Vator auger wagon that holds 80 bushels. I have two 8n's, one with the draw bar on the 2 point with the sta bars ect, the other has one the more traditional (to other tractors) draw bar that bolts to the back of the tractor around the PTO. Is there a weight limit that I need to be concerned with either one of these. 80 bushels of corn is roughly 4500 pounds and the wagon is fairly balanced with the wheels favoring the back of the wagon. Thanks

Yes it unloads out the back. This one has been converted to an electric motor for filling pails as the Grain o vator has a gate to determine how much goes into the auger. Also this will be stationary and blocked up when unloading. The 3 point hitch has all the bars in place so the lift doesn't have to hold the load. I like the bolted on hitch but was concerned if the bolts might break off. Didn't know if anyone had that experience. That is interesting you bent yours up with round bales.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeDrawbar between lift arms will be limited in lift capacity to around 1000 pounds, & at that weight, expect front of tractor to become almost too light for steering. The bolt on has connection point closer to rear axle and will bend before lifting front of tractor. I turned one into a pretzel with weight of 16 foot trailer loaded to about 6 bales high of hay. Guestimate 2,000 tongue weight.

Does it unload from auger in the back. If so, the tongue weight may go seriously negative, maybe dangerous.
Experience with one on 8N not having enough power to turn auger system.
