I am looking for some plans, and dimensions so I can fabricate implements for my MTD.
I assume the 3 point is a type 0? how heavy of a harrow could I pull with this 16 hp Briggs, after I get it running of course . Any idea of the weight of the heaviest implement?

I have never tested the max lifting of my 990, but I would think 300lbs. should be be no problem..

Just wondering if your unit is manual or hydraulic lift? That will make a big difference in how much you'll WANT to lift!

Thanks Brian. I wasn't aware of that. Most of my Horses are manual lift and 300 Lbs. sounds like a dislocated shoulder to me :laughingteeth: That shouldn't be a problem with the hydro lift though!

Are you talking disc harrow or tooth harrow? The Brinly sleeve hitch disc harrow is pretty light and I would think you could handle a double?
I've also seen guys use a Farmall Cub disc behind a GT and a single gang probably weighs more tha a double gang Brinly and would pull harder.
I have a couple 4' or 5' spike tooth harrows(can't remember which) one unweighted and one with a couple cement blocks tied on and can pull either with my 318 or Murray yardking( I get some wheelspin with the Murray and the weighted one in loose dirt). these are just drug and not on a mounted lift frame.
Overall it's going to depend a lot on how your 990 is weighted/tires and ground conditions.

This is how I modified a Cub disc to pull behind my Cub Cadet.

Amigatec, that was a very nice fabrication on the disc.

My father-in-law always told me that you aren't stuck as long as the wheels are turning. Great job on the lift.

Aggatec that's a neat video and carrier for the disc. Thanks! Seeing that someone has already executed an idea that has been bouncing around in tne back of your head. Assures me that I'm not totally nuts afterall.(smiley is not working?)

Sweet job Amigatech, thanks for the inspiration.
On the Lincoln Electric web site there are some project books I am thinking about buying. In them are some ag equipment I can scale down

Actually, these are the books that I was talking about. There is a section in each book with farm and ag implements. You might find them cheaper through bookfinders.com, or amazon, even the library may have them for loan.

Also here is a page with some reasonable reference material, the miller site is more fun
