Yep, you guessed it, I've been thinking again. Had a bright idea for a tractor stand. This is more for just working on it, not restoration.Thought of using the rear trailer hitch set down on a 5/8" bolt (in BLUE below), tighten a nut down on top. Front axle sets on two angle irons 12" apart by 12" long (in RED) to handle different wheel bases. Bottom frame work can have a piece of plywood across to let you lay on to work underneath. Set on casters, you can move it about the shop. Simple drawing below showing side and top views.

If it's only for fixing it than you are going to have to rethink it. By the time you get the tractor on, fix it, and get it off... you could have just fixed the thing and moved on to the next repair project...

Wouldn't it be easier to just build a lift table that you drive on to and then with an electric winch pull the table up. (folding legs that all fold the same way and overcenter into the up position)

I see a thanks from you Kenny, I hope you understood my though, Basicly two pivoting tables with 4 legs. One table upside down, the other right side up, and a pedestal on the lower table extending up to the height the one table comes up to when the legs stand up. Mount winch on top of pedestool and the hook on the front edge of the lifting table to drag it up. Power up, power down (gravity with winch holding it back) one tractor at a time.

Yours is real cool, but I have many different brands to try to fit on there. That's why I chose using the rear trailer hitch to hold that end up. Every tractor I might put up there has one.

Casey, I have limited space to work in, may not work on the tractor every day. This way I can move it out of the way. Plus, I don't have to get down on my knees to work on it. A lift table would take up valuable space, plus keep you from getting under it. With this, I can remove all wheels, tear most down to bare frame (except front axle) on several different brands.
