Here's my Sears 3pt hitch and Sears plow, eventually it will all get restored.

Thanks to everyone who shared a lot of nice pieces added to my wish list after reading this thread.

Ok this is my favorite attachment not the best pic of it behind a yard man mtd lol but it's my jd yard trailer I made 10in. Cedar sides and welded the little wheels inside of two spare donut tires for more ground clearance and for easier mobility. I use this trailer at least a couple times a week for dumping my bager and it helps save a lot of time running back and forth to dumping my next project on the trailer is going to be a cover to make it so I can blow grass clippings straight into the trailer ( not with the yard man) lol

Guess I need to add in my 2 latest homemade attachments!

First is my grader blade. This took a bit to figure out how to make it all work under the FF. But it's done other than paint. It has swing both directions as well as tilt. I need to sharpen the cutting edge a bit so it will cut grass better, but other than that I am very happy with the results.

Next is the single shank ripper/garden furrow tool. I haven't tried it out on the FF with down pressure as yet, but I think it will work fine for it's intended purpose.

Added two more attachments.

 

First is a duplicate of one I already had, another Dual Wheel Kit for the Bolens Large Frames.

The second is a mid-mount grader blade for the Large Frames

There is some discussion as to whether it's commercially made or home made.  The seller, and two of us that have actually seen it believe it to be commercially made.  Others that have only seen the pics believe it to be home made.

Looks like a machine shop build to me, a little better than backyard fab and not as smooth as mass production factory, either way it's a great unit.

I have 2 attachments that have put together. The first one is a grill guard, what make this an attachment is that it gives the ability to add weight on front of tractor. Grill Gaurd.jpg

The second is a rear scoop. Rear Scoop.jpg The bucket is something that my dad had gotten several years ago. I had tried several different ways to use it. When I got the LGT 145 with hydraulic lift & made the receiver hitch, I decided to set it for a rear mount. The one problem is getting the latch working properly, but I think that it should work correctly now. I have not painted it because recently just finished & fall temperature have not helped. One thing I found though is if I load to much dirt the hydraulics will not raised it with out dumping some out.

the weight lift thing was my concern , that's why i used the boat winch for , a bit slower but works ok for me . The rear concept of a scoop never really appealed to me , so is it easy to use on the rear as you have it ? putting aside the lift prob

No I have no problem with it on the back of the tractor. I spent many hours on farm tractors pulling equipment through the field where you need to watch things on both ends of the tractor. As for the lifting issue the snowblowers for these tractors use a spring assist for raising them. So I may look at doing something like that or some other ideas, but with the bucket only half full I can still move a lot more material with this then I can with a shovel. There are other things I can use to move that it has no problem lifting. There are times when extra weight is needed on the front of the tractor, so that is when the weight brackets become handy.
