New Holland H7230 Discbine

We're going to start at the front of the machine here. This machine, particular one is a 540 power take-off shaft. This machine is also equipped with what we call the drawbar swivel hitch. What that is, is it's a double gearbox, it's a gearbox on the gearbox here. Once hooked to your tractor through this latch system, you are able to turn at any angle and your driveline stays centered with the machine.

This will let you pivot in any direction eliminating driveline failure for you in the future.
