If anyone here owns a cub23A disc harrow and doesn’t own one of these, then you’re missing out. The 23A operates so much better with this installed

Isn’t backing up to reset the disc angle hard to do with a swinging drawbar? I have a swinging drawbar, but never used it with a 23A disc. Currently don’t have any trouble with a standard drawbar.

Persuade me... :)

Yes, it does make it more difficult to reset the disc, but I only have to do it once when I’m done and ready to transport. If you’re doing a large plot, you can get by without the drawbar. But if you do small plots like I do and need to make sharp turns, that’s where the swinging drawbar shines. Making a sharp turn without the drawbar, the front tires slide and don’t track even with front weights.



Without the drawbar, I could not come close to making the sharp turns shown in video. Of course, soil could be a factor

Agree that the swinging draw bar is a must for small areas. And for areas with fencing that is permanent and you want to grab as much as the corner as possible. Backing up is difficult but ok as long as you're straight.

You could always drop a couple of pins on either side to keep it straight.

That defeats the purpose for turning in the field. Of course, you can just put the pins in for transport.

I plan on sticking couple pins in my tool box when I put it back on for that purpose

Edit: I suppose I could just move the pins to the outmost holes, also

Common practice. That way you can pull a trailer, etc. that doesn't require it to swing without removing the swinging drawbar. Just pull the pins when swing is needed.

Thanks for the education. Proof is in the video. I can't make those sharp of turns with my standard drawbar. Keeping a pair of pins available would allow flexibility when needed.

Dave--hope this hasn't hijacked your Vine thread, but rather enhanced it--made your swinging drawbar more appealing to someone!

You're level of difficulty meter must have a higher threshold than mine does. Backing up a 23A is on the same level of difficulty for me as turning my washing machine into a nuclear reactor.
