Swinging Drawbar

Our local school sports assn. is getting a gang reel mower. Northern tool show a garden tractor towing it around. I know that my 8n should be able to tow that thing around the field with no problem, but I was wondering what sort of drawbar arrangement I need.

What I've got on the tractor is:

1) 3pt hitch with some chains that attach to a collar near the PTO to the lower lift arms, I think these are called check chains.
2) A clevis with pin bolted to the underneath of the diff.

Do you guys have a photos of the drawbar arrangement, so that I get an idea of what parts I need. Or even better how they bolt up on the back end. I still am confused about the names of the parts.

I have a swinging drawbar which I like alot for certain things, but I think for the mower you describe an 11 hole drawbar that goes on your 3 pt. would work fine. I'm sure you have seen them, flat bar with 11 holes in it and pins on the end to go on the lift arms like an implement would.
Just a thought.

I recently added a drawbar to my 8N, and it consisted of three main parts: a collar that bolted up around where the PTO exits the rear of the tractor, a plate that bolted up underneath the diff. that has a short stud or pin that the drawbar fits onto (with a clevis pin to keep it there), and the drawbar itself, which slides through a slot in the bottom of the collar around the PTO. The slot has pre-punched holes that allow you to restrict the movement side-to-side of the drawbar if needed.

Sounds from your description like you may only need the drawbar.

I got mine at my local New Holland/NAPA dealer. Seems like it was around $50 or so.
