Hi all,
My Kioti has the option of using its drawbar in a fixed position (using 2 pins)or swinging (with one pin as a pivot point). With what implements/conditons do you use one or the other? I'm about ready to start my 2nd hay cutting using a Hesston PT7 moco, 4 basket tedder and Deere 14T baler (rake is ground driven with hte 3pt.) on level ground. Thanks in advance.

You should use the fixed position for all of those impliments.
Anything that is PTO driven off the tractor should have the drawbar in it's fixed position, leaving it swing would put the PTO shaft into some nasty sharp angles that likely would cause a failure of the shaft.
Using a drawbar in a swinging position is rarely used anymore. The swinging position was used to make turning on the ends of a field easier before modern hydraulics were used to lift impliments on the ends to allow easier turns.
