I know there are a lot of very tallented members who have built their own attchments, was just wondering if some of you guys would show off your work. Attchments, hitches, weight brackets,etc.

I've built a couple of weight boxes. One for a JD 212, and one for a Homelite T15. Both were wood, one filled with sand, one poured with concrete.

I built a longer chute for my Bolens single stage snowblower, after speeding up the auger. It does a good job of directing snow.

Looks good ,also looks like they all worked well. I like the tool holders in the weight box that is a good idea. The blower sure does mean business. Very cool

Kenny, you also have some very nice pieces, I thought I would like to try the rear boom idea but with a sleeve hitch. I was worrried about not having enough support . Yours looks very nice.  They all are cool.

The Dump Trailer was some time back, May 2012. 4 wheel wagon was in Aug 2012. The others I have done since the move this last spring.

Kenny, Is your grader box built from scratch or did you start with one and make it to your specs?
 
I like the dump wagon. 
 
And grnspot110 - very good idea. I think there is old saying "Out of neccissity, comes innovation".
 
I am thinking of a boom pole / hoist kind of thing myself.
 
Good stuff.

Box blade started out as a 40" wide sleeve hitch unit. I widened it to 52", made it 3-point and added in one more tooth. Also added the rear blade. This added a lot more weight to it and is very functional!
