I just found this thread, looks good! I think it will work great! They remind me of skid plates used in tractor pulling. Lol. I have a hand truck but it has forks and not the little platform. A family friend gave it to my dad about 3-4 years ago and my dad adapted it to fit onto a 3pt. I will take pics of it tomorrow sometime.

I don't know what I will call this object that I made :laughingteeth: But I made it so I can brake up the hard dirt so I can level it out with my snowplow cause thats all I have,, I bolted it on the end of my forks so now I can do some dirt work with out haveing to stomp my foot on a shovel (I don't know if I should have made another post for this or not) :confuse: I kinda think I mite call it a dirt braker lol,,,
