Well done, you saved the fender from the saw. It looks plenty strong. :thumbs:

 

As for that Beer, sure I'll take you up on that, but you'll need to visit Canada.

 

Looking forward to the next update.

Didnt see how you tied the lift into the three point. Is there a picture I missed?

Not tied yet . I have to put all the parts of the 3PH and fine tune it and after this to calculate the lever I need to lift the 3PH. It's no simple operation becouse you have to correlate the movement  of the tractor lever (lenght of the distance made by lever) with the hight of the 3PH .I hope I can do it today . I want to put the plow and go for a run !

I will warn you of one thing. On more than one machine, I have seen the lift handle bent at the bottom and some even kinked. Just so you know.

For now I connect the tractor lever for manual lift.In the future I'll put a heavy duty 12V actuator (1000 lbs push/pull ) directly to 3PH , without connecting to manual linkage . Thank you anyway for warning .

Almost ready ...

First the piece tight to tractor lever :

WP_20131027_002.jpg WP_20131027_004.jpg WP_20131027_008.jpg

The middle link and the upper lever (pair):

WP_20131027_007.jpg WP_20131027_009.jpg

Linked together

Down :

WP_20131027_012.jpg WP_20131027_013.jpg

Up :

WP_20131027_014.jpg WP_20131027_015.jpg

Middle :

WP_20131027_016.jpg

 

The upper lever is not welded yet .It's just tighten between 2 nuts .The lift is working very well.

A lot of try and error.For middle and upper levers first I made levers with bolt holes from 15 in 15 mm and tried different combination of lever lenght in order to have lift from bottom to higher point.After I found the right combination I made the levers with the right dimension.

 

To be continued ...

Last piece of the puzzle ready :

WP_20131028_003.jpg

 

I was thinking about what MH81 told me :"I will warn you of one thing. On more than one machine, I have seen the lift handle bent at the bottom and some even kinked. Just so you know."

My 3PH is working well and the effort to push/pull the tractor lever is not very big but is not easy .When the plow attached the weight is bigger .I'm thinking adding a pair of springs like in the drawing below :

3PH arcuri.jpg

The springs should take some of the weight of the lower part of 3PH and the weight of the plow .

Any suggestions , opinions ?
