    Draw bar/hammer strap?

    Hey guys, I can't seem to find where to buy the draw bar that mounts off the bottom hitch plate below the 3 point. Some call them a hammer strap. I made one out of an aluminum strip I had so I could spray weed killer but I'd like a heavier duty one to use with the trailers and roller.
    i need it to be close to 16" long to allow my tow behind equipment to clear the 3 point arms. Anyone bought one of these or know where I can get one. Worst case I can purchase the steel and make it myself.

    The only ones I've been able to find are 30"+ long. That is far too long for my tractor. I've seen pics of 1 series tractors with short ones but can't find where they got them at. I haven't talked to my dealer yet but was going to call tomorrow.

    The 1025R doesn't use a drawbar. It just has a hitch plate similar to a garden tractor. Any type of extension would have to be a home brew project.

    One alternative is to get a generic Cat1 drawbar and attach it to your 3PH. That would put your towed implement well behind the back of the tractor.

    I have a 2720 and even though it has a drawbar like you describe, it is too short to properly attach any type of trailer and still be able to turn. I went with a Cat1 drawbar attached to the 3PH.

    Ok that makes sense with everything I've found so far. I will have to make something then.

    While considerably more expensive that the "drawbar" option, you may have other uses for it.

    I did consider that but it doesn't get me out far enough to attach my sprayer or spreader.

    "sans the ball"? That's high class talk for a bunch of tractor jockeys.

    I was thinking the same thing. Didn't actually put it together in my mind until I found this pic:
