naw...I'm not gonna dump on 'em...

i have a philosophy.
...there's no sense to dump on anybody, cause everyone's already condemned to be exactly who and what they are...and that's enough punishment for anyone.

Do you remove your deck when using the blade and/or other sleeve attachments? We seem to have a conflict of opinions on that issue, well at least one. I think it is definately better to do so. Thanks for sharing and welcome to the group.

Modre, great work there. :)

let me know if you have any interest in selling your fabrications. I am about to launch a full-feature professional shopping cart on this site and would be glad to help you in this aspect. PM me if you have any interest, comments or questions.

Hi modre! And Welcome!

These guys have been real nice to me since I've joined the forum!

Wow! That's some flashy fab work you got there. If you'll pardon a stupid question, where does the power to lift come from? Arm, winch, what? I couldn't tell from the pics.

TIA,
Angel

simple john...I made the blade for grading...I have a front blade for moving material, but the rear blade distributes it a bit more precisely...when I get it close, I use a drag.

lucky charms...I only put the deck on to mow... I usually run the tractor naked. mid weight is nice, but between the AGs and weights, I'd rather have the ground clearance and unobstructed foot placement than be married to a bulky deck.

bontai joe...did not get ousted...I just wasn't getting my soul fed, so I haven't been dabbling on the GW web much lately...I surfed in today and the question was "tractor purchase denotes income...how much do you make a year"...reminded me of Joe Banks and Tony Bertini in the HS gym locker room (1969-ish) comparing penis dimension...winner take all...substance maybe, but no depth...

I thought you pretty much owned the place over there...you always had solid answers presented with class...and they threw you out the friggin' door?...well look what they got now...hitch polishers and pretenders...the hip moved on...

simple john...not mounted yet...I'm occupied with chores...I'll git it on line eventually...I'm working on hydrolics I thonl...possibly electric or pneumatic thoughts as well...but I'm heavily leaning towards a mid mount for a 4-5 foot lift and an add on pump ect... we'll see. it's painted yellow awaiting further attention...but no pictures yet....

admin...thank you for the respect. I'm not totally aginst making a few bucks on the side...but I'm not anxious for the responsibility...I'll keep it in mind...we'll see.

Cat Daddy...it's a manual:
<img src=http://img35.photobucket.com/albums/v107/modre/rear_hitch_lift_lever.jpg>

the arm thru the lift shaft grabs the hitch itself mid way so the mechanical advantage is surprisingly adequate for 100+ lbs. I also have a couple helper springs on for lift...one day it may get eoither an electric actuator like Capt. Nunez' or if I do a hydraulic system for the FEL I may go that way on the rear hitch as well..

I'm in SW Pa, and this is the hit it season between freeze and too damn hot to breathe...so I've been busy doing chores...when I get rained out or too hot, I'll take time for a proper disertation on everything under the sun...like it or not... :)

Modre, thanks for the photo. It looks rockin'!

Is that all your idea & fab work or did you have something to work from as a model/starting point? I'd like something along those lines.

Too damned hot in PA??? :hand: I thought the south had cornered the market on "too damned hot"!:furious:
I end up sweating buckets everytime (well... March to October anyway) I go outside & work. Thank God for cold adult beverages!
Definitely helps take the edge off the heat.:cheers:

We had our first hot day today 29C...........
......... or 85F in the old money.

We've had one of those years where the spring rains start in April and end in July - another effect of that damn global warming.

I keep looking out and hoping the grass will have grown enough since this morning to take me away from the accounting I'm stuck with today.

I must go now. Wife thinks it's hot enough for me to take her down to the Lickety Split for an ice cream cone.

Later
