Good luck with it, Alan! Have you got a helper spring on the lift? You might need something if it's further back.


Actually, the way it is right now... It lifts as easy as my sears plow. Obviously not in the ground yet, but I hope to try that this week.

Looks good. That will definitely be handy as sleeve hitch implements can be easier to come by than sears

I want an adapter like that.  I am having trouble finding even a 3 point plow that is cheap.  I do see brinly plows now and then around here.

Sure would be nice, if you got it all painted up before plow day.

I think it'd look real great, all painted up...

It's supposed to be warm and sunny tomorrow.

If you got some paint on there at 6-7am, it'd be dry by the end of the

day.

I don't think that will work properly at all. I will send you my address so you can shipo to me for proper disposal :smilewink:  :wave:

 

Seriously, nice job. I want to make one like that with a 2" hitch receiver as implements I plan to make will all be 2" tube.

Thanks for all the kind words, helpful suggestions, support, and oh yeah... Whatever Will said too.

I ran home from work, grabbed the piece that I thought might work for a toplink sub, drilled the hole in the right spot and drove to the south 40 for a couple of laps. A tweak here and an adjust there and it's doing pretty well.
I do not have pics of it in action, but I do have a pic of it on the ST16.

I have a short vid of the lift going up & down, will add later.

In the video, does it go up, then down? Or is it up already, goes down, then goes back up? I need to know so I can properly prep the theater.
