All of these are very good pieces of equipment, I don't have many custom built pieces but I will get pics soon of what I do have. Keep up the good work everyone.

I thank all of you for the ideas and if I ever get free time, I can't wait to make some of these things too. Happy new year too.

Haven't built any implements yet from scratch but here's what I have done so far:

 

Some adjustable plow wings

Converted a pull behind aerator to a 3 point mount, while keeping the ability to use the original tongue and just pull it

I only have a couple things made so far, first is a rear blade that was made from a front blade. The second thing I have made was a sleeve hitch for my 212 deere. Both are kinda crude in a way but they have been working well for me. I have a few projects in the works, but I am not far enough along to have any good pics yet.

Anyone ever use a front mount dozer blade to mount forks onto to make it kind of like a forklift? Kind of like my sketch(Sorry this was the only pic I had)

I made just a single arm to lift my drums full of rabbit poop onto the back of my trailer for disposal. It just slips over top of blade and hangs.

My drums are probably 350-400#'s, not bad to slide, but makes it much easier to lift :thumbs:

 

I could've made two, but the little cross arm just sit there and moveable to support drum.

Something I hadn't thought about until I read about lesmeister's rear blade made from a front blade!  This is the mid-mount blade I made from a newer JD front blade, originally for a 74-112, then remodeled to fit my 314:

Also, the Brinly "Gard-N-Cart" on the 314 is a replica that I made, originally, for the 74-112.  ~~  Lowell

Glad to see all of the good ideas, hopefully some more will be posted and the newcomers to the Hobby will be inspired to make some custom attachments also. I have been gathering some parts for my disk project but I will have to cut them down, then I can get some steel and when the weather gets warmer I can get busy in the shop. Thanks to all and please keep the pics coming.

Today I was snowed in so I got to brain storming custom attachment ideas let me know if any of these sound like anything that you'd buy sorry no sketch pics right now. Rear blade for any slot hitch gt, Brush Guard for Jacobsen Chief but I might adapt them to fit other gts( looks a little like Brinly GardNCarts but only functions as a brush guard and covers more of the front of the tractor and thinking of making them out of 3/16t5h inch steel so they are strong, And finally Front Bucket(Concept kind of like a Johnny Bucket but very different) I might make up a few to sell when ever I can get some metal this spring/summer.

My front end loader built from scratch.  Started life on an altered (with MF14 hood/grill/dash) MF1650, then later mounted on my MF1655 I repowered with a 16hp Yanmar diesel.

Tommy, I really like the idea of the rear blade, kinda like the snap coupler hitch. Olcowhand, you have a nice loader, the brackets look factory from the pics. Great ideas and finished products, keep em coming!!!

I'm slowly working on a grader blade for the FF20. It's here.
