Great job, keep your receipt handy with that HF winch though. I use them when I install snow plows on our golf cars. They work for a while but after a few weeks of hard work or actual use, they fail.

Well this one was installed Dec 2011, just had to replace switch and I've worked it pretty hard. Installed another one on a firend's Honda 250 and it's going good too.

Speaking of that, here is pics of the blade mount I made for their honda....cause I know you all like pics no matter what they are of LOL. Yea, he got rocked a view times due to a no trip plow, young boy is learning the hard way haha

Nice job on the honda too!! My neighbor has a winch lift blade mounted on a Polaris 4X4 ATV. He usually beats me out to clean the 1/4 mile lane and I'm very impressed with the job it does. He runs quite a bit faster than my tractor does.

 I did take the tractor out and clean off any ruts and bumps this fall before they froze down, so he would not be doing acrobatics over the handle bars.

Titus: any pictures of the Golf Car conversions. My wife wants one for a Garden Buggy and a blade might be a good option too.

That is a neat lift. I have thought of making something like that for the dragonfly.

Tahoe, great build and some very clever ideas put into play to make it a couple of functional attachments.  So what's next?

Thanks.

What's next..... if I can't find a true Sears back grader blade, I have an old hot water heater that I will fab up something along with a messed up 3pt that I will modify into an electric lift using the 4" actuator I have. Other than that, probably no more mods to this tractor, I'm working on a Massey MF1855 that has a 5' back blade and will get a mini FEL on the front....eventually. I am also do restore on a Sears ST16 so that  need done also.

Wife also has other honey do lists plans for me first  DOH!!!

I like it, and, believe I've seen similar setups. :thumbs:

 

 

Drop the plow and you still have the winch. Was the winch before the plow? Is the winch a Honda or ATV option?

On both tractor and ATV, both blades and buckets can be removed in about 5 mins and you still have winch options. Althought the way I built ATV plow mount, you have to unbolt it from ATV to be able to have any fun since it hangs so low, 5 bolts and it's off, but winch is permanent.

I do not know if winch was option for the Honda, I bought one at Harbor Frieght and made all my on mounts. It fit great though up under front frame and facia, almost like it was a space made for a winch, nice and hidden.

The winch/blade setup on tractor was all built at same time, the winch was specifically used to lift blade.

I worked it hard this weekend, used bucket and trailer to clean out goat stalls, must've hauled 10-12 big loads to back of field to dump on compost pile, never let me down.

Hey Tahoe.  I've been "engineering" my idea for a loader bucket and have considered borrowing from your idea, but was wondering if you have had any issues/concerns with the single arm lift?  My thought was that if you didn't have a fairly balanced load, you would experience some twist or lean on the bucket.  Your design appears to work very well, and if you've not had any issues I'll stop complicating my idea.

 

Thanks
