now...what am I supposed to do with all this stuff??  :D

 

Got to mod the sleeve hitch to work on my Sears to use box blade and looking last night, I think I can make 3pt mount for the tiller, just need to find 6-8 Hp motor and built mount to make tiller self powered! :thumbs:

Or find a Simplicity guy and sell it so I can find an sears tiller.

Nice batch of attachments.
You left out the other option: find a craftsman GT series for the sleeve hitch and box blade and a Simplicity tractor for the tiller.

Those were nice looking implements, just not FF rated!

Yea, the FF would tear them up pretty quick. I've been wanting a box blade for a while to help dress my mom's long gravel driveways, this will work great behind the Sears. When I get the Massey running, then I will be looking for HD stuff, already have Cat 0 5' back blade for it.

Here is my "goodie" from the swap meet.  I would nominate IT for farthest distance traveled by an implement, except Brian's (TD&H) Jacobsen plow traveled an equal distance.  North Carolina to Texas, via Oklahoma and who knows where else.

Brian, this worked out great for me.  There is a more local plowday near Charlotte NC and this plow fit my homemade sleeve hitch just great.  No need for bolts to tighten or anything.  I would never have had the time to fab a slot hitch with everything else I've had going on.

 

I'm just waiting to see that Jacobsen plow hooked up to your Dad's tractor.

 

Again, Scott, can't thank you enough for transporting it to Daniel's and back for me.  I'll have to take pictures and post them from this coming weekend.

Just want to add, there was some discussion about whether this plow was correctly assembled.  I am happy to report that the hitch was correctly positioned, the plow share was adjusted at far too steep an angle, ie, someone wanted that plow to dig very deep.  The only other thing I did was to take a hammer and "persuade" the coulter wheel to line up with the plow.  I actually had more trouble getting my sleeve hitch to fit.  It must have shrunk by about a 32nd or something over the summer.  I put a jack between the ends and "introduced some free play" to the fit of the sleeve hitch to the tractor.

Even if you didn't make any deals, look at it as a weekend out of the house and tractor talk with the guys.

Howard, going by your third pic, the sleeve hitch mount on the plow is out 180 degrees. I had the same setup on my 10" plow and it would not dig in. Found several others at plow day. Once the hitch (on the plow) was rotated 180, they did fine.

According to Brinly, the only thing that changes by flipping the hitch from one side to the other is the ability to take a smaller or larger bite from the un-plowed ground.  I was going to leave things the way they were, but after a discussion with Brian and thinking about my first plow day, I am flipping it so it will be easy to adjust for smaller bites.

I had mine set the other way, so you can move the plow more to the right for smaller width cut on my MF10 that I used at last yrs Plowday at Daniels

The plow I got with my Ford was set that way. I couldn't get it to dig in at all! Took it to a plow day & still wouldn't dig in. Swapped the hitch 180 and plowed great!
