I'm a bit confused about why everyone who makes smaller implements basically only make two types. Trailer sized for an ATV/UTV or 3 point.

I just don't get why it's not a more even split. Everything I can think of still has a drawbar but not everything has 3 point.

Not sure that I understand the question, but I think that you are asking why you can't get drawbar implements that are larger. I could give you the simplistic answer that the manufacturers make what sells, but I know that you already know that. I believe that part of it is that a person can generally mount and use a much larger and heavier implement on a three point than hooked to a drawbar. There are some very big and heavy drawbar implements, but they use wheels and hydraulics to handle the weight, and there are very few ATVs with hydraulics.

I think where your going .It would be nice
to have good trailer type equipment for
older tractors.One thing comes to mind is
bush hog you can buy a three point easy
enough but how do you pull that with an m or
60 without three point.

Maybe I asked it in poor word choice. I've been looking at things like an 8' disc harrow. Everyone makes a 3 point one. Which is great if you have a Kobota or maybe an 8n. But they still have drawbars on them too just like the very capable H or M.

So what I don't quite know is why the drawbar implement died so completely. I know it would cost a little more to add wheels and hydrolics. I sort of figured they'd make more of what sells best but still make the other because even that Kobota, by example, could still pull a trailered one.

As a side comment I understand in the field the weight distribution is better but wouldn't hauling it lifted be kind of hard on a tractor?

the mfgers make what is popular.What sells. Very few still use 'drag along' implements anymore. maybe Amish but that's about it.It's all about profit.So buy the old antique and horse drawn equipment and repair/rebuild/restore.......

There's enough old pull type equipment out there yet to fill the market need for it. If there wasn't,somebody would fill it.

I don't know where you are located, but around here we have a large population of Amish and Mennonites. They have their own companies and dealers that mfg. and sell equipment like you are asking about. Definitely a nitch market.

Hauling gets fun when the front end of the
tractor comes up getting enough weight on
the front of a small older tractor can be
tricky. With a disc you also have to think
about how much the front end will sink into
the ground . The Amish around here trying to
modernize buy up all the small disk. You
have to be lucky and find a decent disk that
by the time you get done fixing with new
bearings and blades etc you will have a good
chunk of cash tied up.
At one time you had equipment that was three
point and for a little extra you could put a
hitch on . I think land pride still does
this and the drawbar is an option.

Well if you think about it ALL the tractor made now days have 3 point on them so why should a company want to make equipment for the old tractors that do not have 3 points on them since the old ones are in many ways obsolete plus one can buy aftermarket 3 point hitches for most any tractor that did not have 3 point

Even if all the new tractors today have 3 point there are still advantages to the older pull implements.

For instance when it's pinned up you can pull it down the road with a truck to where the fields being worked. There's a lot of reasons you want to do that.

For the record I was going to buy a 3point aftermarket but everyone I talked to says it's likely to fail because they just aren't built heavy enough. If you have one I'd like to know how it's worked for you.

Draft control also well cause problems. Look
at where the three point is hook on .

I don't know who told you the aftermarket hitches "fail". All the ones I've seen are well built,they can hold more than the tractor.Oh sure,you get a defective weld once in a while,but not much.Unless it was a poor quality homemade one with skimpy parts. Seen plenty of those.BTY,I currently own 4 tractors(SH,M,SM,400) with 'aftermarket' hitches. Never had an issue with any one of them. Even when it's so overloaded the tractor wont even lift.

Draft can be an issue sometimes. But by using a gauge wheel,or putting a stop block on the cylinder,the effects are neglegable.

I have found that some of the aftermarket 3 points do not work well or hold up well to things like a plow due to the heavy pull etc.

I tried asking for advice on another thread for what to get or look for when I pick an aftermarket 3pt. I revived comments about people twisting them while pulling.

I don't really know how to use draft control or what that even is but I figured on a way to try and get the depth pretty close every time you lift and drop it.

I intend to pull moldboard plows, disc harrows, and cultivators. These are the implements I'm having the most difficulty sourcing. Might just post an item wanted and see if that has more luck.
