I cut apart the oxy/actylene rack I got from Aaron some time back. I needed to see what the metal would look like under the tractor. I won't be starting this right away. But I needed something to do for the next few days while the weather was nasty. So, after getting some measurements, I can work up a drawing to see how this will fit. I plan to use the deck lift for this. I have 3.5" of lift there, not sure what that will work out to with the pivot points as yet. There is plenty of room under the tractor @ 14.5". Blade is only 8" tall.

Here's a sneak peek at a chunk under the FF.

It will be about 5' wide, with the ability to angle both fwd/back & left to right. Here's hoping it will work!

Kenny it looks like you may have a good plan, I think it will work. Good luck with the remaining portion, you'll have that done in no time the way you are going now, and then what.

Kenny, it appears that you have more then enough room to make it work. Should be a great addition to your tools.

Is this something that they had available for the FF's or is this a KP original?

That blade looks like it is a good size for the FF, I am sure it will end up being a great attachment to have!

This will be another KTP special, Alan! (KTP = Kenny's Tractor Port)

I'll start plugging the dimensions into the drawing tomorrow to see what works. I'm not sure if I can 'swing' it off the rear mower attachments, but would like to. That would put the pressure pushing on the mounts. We'll see! This may be an all winter build as I have to look at temps to work out there. But, if I can get it all figured out, it will go quick from there. Getting the swivel and tilt figured out will be the most fun.

Ok, an Oxy/Acetylene rack converted into a grader blade. :worshippy1:

 

What's next Kenny, are you going to convert your cement

mixer into a snow blower? :smilewink:

 

Looking forward to the progress updates. :thumbs:

Kenny, you're going to have to find an inner tube, three spatulas, a chunk of garden hose and an old charcoal grill so you can build one...
