We run a 16 row 1770 with 2 point pull. We have only ever had 2 point on our planters. We are interested in a 24 row 1770 but it has draw bar setup. What are peoples prefrences on either?
If you go to the link below, and zoom in on the tractor drawbar, you can just make out the hydraulic cylinder, for lifting the front of the planter, at the hitch. The whole point of this setup, is for the person pulling the planter with a tractor that doesn't have a 3-point.Is there a mechanism with the drawbar to give the lift the 2 point does? I would think the only advantage the drawbar would have is if your tractor couldn't handle the 2 point weight. Everything else I can think of would be a disadvantage.
