Needs a little fabricating to get it to work. Suggestions are encouraged and welcomed!

Now that's a good idea putting a seat on the disc!  :thumbs:

I agree!  The disk will work great and all it needs is a longer tongue to get you back from the handlebars a little.  :thumbs:

Nate, I'm glad you resisted the temptation to say who was to provide the weight on the seat.

I was going to say why not use the weight you carry around all day instead of lifting weights onto the disc

The 220 lbs I put on it, will be more weight than I can put on it with blocks. I hope it's more like 180 by harvest time.:) Any one with any ideas on the blade? I would like to be able to tilt it up and down and side to side. :wave:

Left to right shouldn't be a biggie, just imitate the hookup from almost any of the OEM ones... Unless you plan on doing it from the handle bars.


As for tilt, I don't have a great easy idea unless you happen to have an 18" tire around for just one side. :smilewink:

Seriously, if the piece on the back of the blade was round and the end of the push arm was round and just slightly bigger (2 pieces of pipe that would slide inside one another.) then you could drill and pin at several preset angles without getting to complicated. It would give you skew in the few times you needed it... Just make sure to keep it greased in there.
