Default tractor hitch for john deere binder

for the last couple months i have been working on digging a binder i found at our local John Deere dealer out of the dirt and weeds on their lot, i am at the point now of wanting to get it home but i want to pull it out with the hitch and have the binder in transport mode, only one problem i have absolutely no clue how the tractor hitch installs to the end of the header, if anyone has pictures either from the manual or from one that is currently setup for transport that would be greatly appreciated

Not familiar with the JD, but the approach used on the I-H should be similar.
With the truck wheels installed and the bull wheel raised, disconnect the tongue from the front of the binder. Retract the grain divider and Raise the grain wheel as high as it will go, then lift the end of the platform and support it as necessary. One of the angle irons running across under the platform has a slot in it which the raised tang on the end of the tongue fits into. The tongue is then raised and the latch mounted on top of it will connect to the hole in the angle iron under the end of the platform.
On Power Binders (PTO driven) the operating tongue typically does not detach, a second auxiliary tongue is attached under the platform as described for transport.
Trucking/untrucking a binder is at least a two man job for any binder above six foot cut. (Six footers are balanced). Power Binders are very heavy and require more help. Have fun,
Jack Hottel
