I am trying to invent, buy, steal, whatever, a quick way to unhook my roundbaler from my JD tractor. A lot of balers and tractors go up in smoke because folks cannot get loose from them in a hurry. Help !! before the next one is me.rcp :help:
The one we had burn was a JD with the stub type hitch that had to be jackked up off the draw bar so you couldn't pull the pindun":3aqbwza1 said:

All of mine have been the single pin through the drawbar. It's smaller in diameter then the pin that hooks the baler but for some reason it's easier to knock out.
No matter what the quick solution is, a fire extinguisher in the tractor during baling season has always seemed wise. I saw one round baler that had a fire extinguisher mounted under the covers of the baler. Didn;t make much sense to have to wrestle with the covers if the darn thing is on fire.
RCP":3r5d62kh said:The tongue weight prevents " just pulling the pin out" It has to be jacked up and aligned just right, (which is not going to happen when you need it to) so I have been toying with the idea to use a pintle hitch sideways, but the question is will it release under pressure? rcp

RCP":1nxq1tad said:Well I am not sure what you mean by roller height, but my drawbar going into the baler hitch is straight, and the heavy tongue weight of the baler rides on top of the drawbar. any forward or backward pressure on the pin makes it impossible to remove the pin. and I mean any, since I have hardly any tolerance in the hole /oin conection. ?? rcp I really appreciate your help !
