Came across this ad on eBay from Redland Hill, a company that manufactures the "HandiHitch" (see http://www.redlandhill.com/drawbars.html ):
Am wondering about using a hitch like this, versus just using a drawbar (which I realize will turn, "spin" in the lift arm connectors)? Seems one could just lock a drawbar into the iMatch hitch (or, just put it into the lift arm connectors directly), and accomplish the same thing?
Or, maybe the 2-inch receiver hitches are the way to go (which seem to have the drawback of no holes in the drawbar to just hook an implement, too, directly, unless one keeps taking the ball off the receiver hitch)?
Advantages, disadvantages of each type? Appreciate any shared experiences, help in this matter!! I realize this depends on how large a trailer, etc. one is lugging around, size of tractor, etc ... have a small trailer (and, rather small implements... making my way from Cat 0 to Cat 1 sized implements, adapting to my new 1026R).
Have come to realize that the "drawbar" on the 1026R is not very useful.. as the PTO shaft is in the way for hooking anything like a trailer to it... so, guess one has to go to using the link arms to pull and tow with...
