KDD, I thought the same thing, so happy to explain as best I can. The plow mounts to the upper frame of the tractor too,so if you think about it the pressure would be a pull up, not a push up like I stated. I will post more pics once I get it mounted to the tractor.
We bored out the drawbar hole to 2 inches, Now I am in process of coming up with a pin to do the job. A neighbor broke his pin and did a lot of damage to his drawbar (CIH 9180), so I am taking proactive action on these problems.
Breaking that center pin under tiling load would have turned everything into a pile of scrap,tractor and plow! So I felt spending the money now was a better option, the tractor has been good and owes us nothing, I just hope I have enough traction to pull in most tile without an additional pull unit.
