I'm sure you were giggling like a schoolgirl in that video and edited the sound out to avoid embarrassment, too late. :bigrofl:

I finished making the adapter for the 3 point hitch. Then guess what I did???

:dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

No weight added (below the seat, that is...) no chains and it was sprinkling.
Wheels did spin, but I could plow. Whahooo!

I do have a set of chains and a pair of solid steel pcs that weigh 50# each for weight.

This will take a little getting used to with the hand clutch and vari-speed, but it's kinda fun to drive.

nice, very nice. Your sub must be a 633, or 634. Imagine how must better it would pull with some ag tires on it!!!

Its too hard to master the hand clutch, run the 3pt handle, maybe move the vari-speed, and then a little throttle. Oh ya you got to steer once in a while too. You'll learn to use you knee for steering.

Looks like you got some rocks growing there, hate to see that.

Ran the 725 at plow day a little. It worked pretty well. 2 problems, the governor seems slow to respond and the 3 point arms have just enough slop to cause some tracking issues with the plow. A couple of washers strategically placed and it was much better, but I think i'll redo the arm bushings instead of spacing them over.

I told Dad I would need to grow some extra appendages if this was a daily user. :)
