I picked this up Saturday from jpcubs. It was needing a little TLC, but otherwise in very good condition.

So yesterday, I went to work on it. First off, the 3-pt hitch needed attention. Where the upper link attached, it was all wrong. The PO (not jpcubs) had just bolted it where the sleeve hitch attached. With no support to the rear, it bent the main frame. A little help with the blue flame wrench and it was back where it belonged. I added a support to the rear and it seems to work just fine.
I also added some pieces to spread the width to 42" to match the FF track better. Here's the finished product:

Looks good Kenny. Have you tried it out yet. That ype of implement is useful on gravel driveways sometimes to loosen up the top layer before you grade it.

Brian, that is the main reason I got it. But, it does pretty good in hard packed dirt too.

I would say it was nearly new.

I picked one up just like that at an auction about a month ago. It works pretty good as well.  But someone adapted that 3 point draw bar on yours. Originally like mine it's a sleeve hitch. And I wouldn't recommend using it on a gravel driveway, it was only designed for dirt work.

Good job Kenny, it looks great behind the FF.  You sure got all the bugs out of it.  I'll bet it will be very useful.

Looks good Kenny, how well does it work?

It'll tear up hard packed clay pretty good, so I'm sure it would work great in a garden.
