I fail to see the problem. The baler will, by the sound of it, have a ring end to its drawbar while the tractor has the standard clevis drawbar. A drawbar pin will fit through the large hole of the baler no problem. There will be slack, which can mostly be taken up by an easily made spacer if required.

If the baler has itself got a clevis, which is two tongues, then one tongue on either the tractor drawbar or the baler’s drawbar should be removed. I suggest removing or cutting one off the baler side if appropriate.

If the baler or other PTO driven trailed implement has previously been used on a pickup hitch hook, especially MF short underbelly design [100 and 500 series as opposed to the extended 600 series design] then the implement’s PTO shaft might be cut too short. Common sense is paramount and if that is lacking, get a contractor.

So the tractor has a draw bar only. I bought a pickup to use with trailers so I dont have to jack stuff up. The baler needs a draw bar, no ring on it for a puh. All sorted now thanks to the input from everyone
