Got to play with the new BB today. It's awesome. Need a bit to get used to how it all works, but I'm impressed. First on the agenda was tree stump removal:

Here's the tools used for pulling the stump:

I found that by lifting the blade up and running the chain under to the hitch, no chance for a 'wheelie'!

First off, after the stump, I pulled a lot of the good soil back. Whether going forward or pushing back, the blade did it's job!:

Then I pushed the fill into place. A little help for a rake and shovel helped since the gas line was there:

All done! I need a bit more time with it, but I am really happy with how it worked.

It took several running pulls for the stump. Love the limited slip rears in these.

Nice job Kenny. :thumbs: The blade and FF did a great job !!

Brian, no! That's the dogs pool! There's a much larger one out back!

Nice work!  Trees & large shrubs sure can hurt a foundation.  I pulled all that were against this house years ago for that reason.

Excellllennnnntttt!!!

 

I sure like the bigger tractors... more power, more grunt, easier to ride on with my "bigger" frame.

Looks like your redesign is working well! I'm glad the stump came out without too much grief. They can be stubborn to get out.

Did you make that box blade Kenny? I'm sure you posted about it if you did make it, I've been very busy and haven't been on much lately. It looks great and I'd like to have one for my mf14 w/3pt. I mount my BB on my Ford 2600 whenever I have to do some heavy pulling, it adds weight (traction), acts as wheelie bars and if the chain should break/slip the BB will most likely take the hit.

Still sorting thru things and finding homes for 'stuff'. Gotta have a little seat time once in a while!

Here's the BB build thread. I didn't need the RR iron for the 'extra' weight this time. I'm very happy with it. I need to 'borrow' the neighbors drive to see how level the blade is to the tractor. I'm thinking about making one arm lift link 'adjustable' with out pulling pins. That's still in the thought stage, but it would let me tilt the blade (side-to-side) easily if I need to.

Only thing you will need  to play with is the top link , that controls the grading and digging actions the most . I have faith that you will get it dialed in . It takes seat time most of all ! Great job by  the way !! :thumbs:
