    Drawbar with a drop for 5065e? (lower)

    I have an older 2030 that I like quite a bit. I also have a 5065e model that I use for bushhogging and spraying. The 2030 has a drawbar that drops about 2", whereas the 5065e drawbar just comes out straight from the frame.

    Is there a drawbar with a drop that I could use on the 5065e? That would make implement swaps from one tractor to the other much easier. When I ask my dealer, they act a bit clueless.

    Dropped drawbars were required when larger rear tires were an option. Does your 2030 have 38" tires? Mine has 28" tires and a straight drawbar.
    You might see if the 2030 draw bar will swap in.

    After briefly viewing drawbar spec's I think they would interchange.

    Drop down kit

    Depending on the implement hitch you may be able to use a drop down kit which basically bolts onto your existing drawbar. They look something like this: R88665 Tractor Drawbar Hammer Strap fits John Deere (I didn't check model numbers to see if it fits your tractor.)

    If the implement has a heavy tongue weight, you will want to make sure the fasteners are adequate for the task when bolting to the bottom of your existing drawbar. You may also need longer hitch pins.

    I suspect that if you look around the net, there's a replacement or used drawbar with the needed drop but if not, a kit is probably available somewhere.

    TxJim, can you find the specs for drawbar P/N: SU296712.
    That was the P/N I found for 5065e, but I could not find any specs

    Then it should simple for him to see if the 2030 drawbar fits. You found it's P/N, so he can buy a second one if it works and he wants 2.

    I agree just put 2030 on 5065E for a test then as I stated will probably require drilling a hole for proper 540 rpm pto DB length which is 14'' from end of pto to center of attaching hole in DB.

    Since I have no "pull" PTO attachments, I did not think of setting drawbar to PTO shaft distance, good point

    In my many yrs around farm equipment I've seen way too many pto driven implements attached to tractors with incorrect drawbar lengths.
