3.1.3 regular drawbar position position of the adjustable drawbar (3.1.2) and non-adjustable drawbar (3.1.1) providing the standard dimension from drawbar pin hole to end of PTO for the type of PTO on the tractor 3.1.4 short drawbar position position of the adjustable drawbar intended to connect non-PTO driven equipment that applies a high vertical load to the drawbar 3.1.5 extended drawbar position position of the adjustable drawbar intended for a special PTO drive shaft condition where equal angularity of the drive shaft joints cannot be obtained using the regular drawbar position (3.1.3) 3.2 PTO drive shaft clearance plane imaginary plane which establishes the upper permissible limit of protrusion of the drawbar and clevis 3.3 drawbar hitch point connection point between tractor drawbar (3.1) and implement end 4? Specifications 4.1 Drawbar clevis The drawbar clevis shall be removable to allow installation of special attachments or connection to implements which have a clevis end (see Figure 6). It may also be necessary to remove the clevis to provide PTO driveshaft clearance with implements which do not meet the dimensions specified in ISO 5673-2. 4.2 Drawbar hitch point Provisions shall be made on the tractor for the connection of the tractor drawbar to the implement, in a position with the drawbar hitch point directly in line with the longitudinal centreline of the tractor PTO. 4.3 Drawbar categories See Table 1.
5 Vertical drawbar load The maximum static vertical downward loads which the implement imposes on the tractor drawbar shall be in accordance with Table 6 for the regular, short and extended drawbar positions. If the configuration of the implement induces high dynamic vertical loads on the drawbar, the static load should be reduced to keep the dynamic load under control. Proper ballasting of the tractor is required to maintain stability when the loads specified in Table 6 are applied to the tractor drawbar. It is not a recommended practice for towed vehicles to impose upward loads to the tractor drawbar.
