To the Nine Members Who indicated by poll that you wanted to see the finished project here it is in the form of a slide show!
Total cost Lumber, chain , paint , hitch Ball, misc. $ 40.00

All steel was free from Kubota Dealer I had to cut steel tractor shipping crates with a torch!

All systems interlock and can be used independently!

The total system is mounted using only two Grade 5 bolts in the side panels of the Loader bucket, may change later to two quick disconnect pins!!

I needed a Hitch ball on the front to move boat trailers for mowing, launching etc. Also a safe stable platform on the loader to elevate G/F to clean gutters , trim trees, etc.....(note last slide) Backhoe serves as a ballast box when lifting G/F..... And she approves of this message!!!!!

If any of you would like a complete drawing I would be happy to do one for you!

Slide Show of Combination Ball Hitch/Platform for Front End loader


To the unknown person who indicated on the poll the He/She didn't want to see anything that I Do (Well don't look then)!!!!!

Nice work Dean! :thumbsup: The orange paint was a nice touch! :D Looks like an OEM attachement. Also a very good idea as well. You do nice work. :zoomin:

The error message shows when you get to the last picture but it played fine for me.

Welcome to Tractor Forum John-Boy! :friends: :cheers:

Nice job! And I hope you don't mind my mentioning that Mrs. Dean is an attractive lady AND she does gutters. An EXTREMELY rare combination!!!!! Take good care of her as there are very few ladies like that in the world.

Hey, you guys don't suppose Dean stole her away from Tractorguy? He was all the time bragging about his lady being all this and all that. Maybe she found Dean to be more worthy?:thumbsup:

Dean…
Nice job, like Chief said, the paint makes it look like an OEM attachment.
That set-up looks like it will come in really handy. Just looking at the
slide show, I was thinking of a half a dozen things I would be using it for.

BTW :ditto: on the hottie GF.

John,
I am an old coot, just refuse to acknowledge it!

Joe ,
I stole her from no one, She knows talent when she sees it!!:D

Aegt, we have been together for 3+ years and she is 18 years my junior and she contributes greatly to my well being not to mention she is accomplished in her own right! It helps to beat her daily however!!:D

Now to the serious stuff, I made a little dolly today to roll my 500# ballest box around in order to store my latest little project Hitch Ball/ Platform, If any might be interested I would put a small pic group together for the inside of the new addition (now that it is half/assed straightened up)!

BTW I have run out of things to do , still waiting for Ideas you might want to see!! Other wise G/F will find something distasteful for me do!!! HELP!!!
