Today while I was thinking of some of you guys plowing SNOW, I was changing my tractors over from their winter SHOW equipment to summer Mowing equipment, we are having some cooler weather it just barely made it to 70 today. I take the mower decks off my tractors to take them to the shows as they are easier to haul and I do not have to worry about getting someone's ankle as I ride it through the show.Here is a picture of the Sears GT 18 I have the mower deck on and getting ready to take off the plow and store it till the next show, my yard is not big enough for a garden.Show season here is from Nov thru March after that it is to hot to be outside at shows

TB,

 

Could you send me a couple pics of the manual hitch system on your tractor.  I have a old jacobsen and I found a single plow. I want to build a hitch system.  If you don't mind and have a few minutes. 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Wade

I will get a picture as soon as I can. I have a Ford 100 like your Jacobsen and I think a sleeve hicth would be much simpler, I have one coming for my Ford, hope to have it in a couple weeks and will send pictures of it also.

here are some pictures of the 3 point hitch on my tractor, and the sleeve hitch I have coming for my Ford 100. the sleeve hitch if I understand how it works you attach it on the rear of the tractor and run a rod to the lift handle for the mower to raise and lower it.

no pictures, I am just getting started in trying to find attachments for all my tractors, they really get attention at the shows.I will probably use sleeve hitch type attachments on the Fords.

Thanks, Mine get alot of attention too. I only have the Sleve hitch for Hulk II (1988 Craftsman II) and a 38" blade that was shipped from Wisconson to TX. All of mine (1990 Craftsman, 1988 Craftsman II, and Ford LGT 145) have fully restored Decks. Main use is mowing 3 acres of my property. I finished a redoo on the 1990 Craftsman deck this winter. Went over well at the last show.

TB,

 

Thanks for the pics.  I was going with the sears because I noticed in Plow Days videos most guys were leaning on the lift handle to keep a bite on the Share while plowing.  Re-thinking the Ford sleeve I will just add a handle off the upright. I will not be able to keep the down pressure using the side mounted lift handle because I modified my seat height and I would have to lean well over the steering wheel.

 

Thanks,

 

Wade
