What a great set up! That works great and has got to be about the best seat time one could ask for. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the video. Neat to see it in action. Watching it makes me really want to build a grader blade and maybe a custom grader tractor.

Boy that machine does a nice job for you. With that long driveway I can see why you built it. Thanks for the video.

Greg, that looks like it's doing a great job. Is that a scarifier bar in front of the blade? Things look like they are starting to green up down there. Thanks for the video.

Gentlemen, I appreciate your interest and support :thumbs: . This was fun to make (still got some more plans in the brain) and yes it is fun to use too. Except last night when I got her stuck trying to go through the ditch, yes I knew better. I was able to pull the stop bolts out of the blade and let it swing backwards as the AG moved forward, in low 1, with a 1 manpower side push assist, hope the neighbors were not watching. Or worse video taping :mecry:. Oh well no harm done. Yes Brian that is a scarifier, I will have to pull the blade off the swivel to use the scarifier though, easy to do, just two bolts and 45 pounds to remove, just watch the toes and fingertips :smilewink:. And yes we are greening up here, but much more so in the town where I work about 23 miles south east of here.
