I am going to build two of them,but I don't know if I am going to keep both of them or not. I originally built it for my 212 jd but I think I would like it better on the 140 I have.

Here's a little flip disc I modeled off the King Kutter one that I built over the winter.  I think the disc's and disc hanger assembly came off a Simplicity setup I bought locally from Craigslist.  Got the wheels from Harbor Junk.  Think I've got maybe $100 into it total.  I put some 1" pipe bungs in the frame so I can fill the disc up with about 7 gallons of water for added weight if I need it.  Havent had a chance to try it out yet, been raining like a dirty pig so far this Spring.

Now that is cool ! :beerchug:  I can think up stuff, i am just not good at how to build it. Does that make sense?

 

 

IE: I want to build something to pull behind my JD at the garden tractor shows that will carry my kids, but i am not sure how and make it safe

Mid mount grader blade, mod'ed from a walk behind dozer/snow blade.

Reinforced and braced, there is two angles, slightly back for cutting (pictured below) and straight for general leveling.

The boredom while waiting on parts to finish my truck repairs is starting to really show... Removed the moldboard from my Brinly plow (2 bolts), adapted it to my Sears 3pt and added a trailer drum for weight...voila, sidewalk and driveway edger.uploadfromtaptalk1396650315070.jpg

This is the one that I think I am going to build for myself. I like the short hopper better, still undecided on keeping both of them.IMG_20140405_220125.jpg

If both are the same internally and the storage space can be provided, keep it, you might need parts some day.

I just got my first GT last year. I have bought a few implements for it, but I have some ideas for a few custom ones I would like to build. I have already built a sleeve hitch for it. I thought I would post some pictures of a 2 wheel dolly I modified into a trailer for behind my old lawn tractor. I did the mods with the intention of being able to easily convert it back. The plywood box simply sits on there, the foot plate keeps it from sliding backwards and the 2x2 cleats and the vee shape of the frame keep it from sliding forward. The tongue is made from the tube from an old ratcheting bumper jack and an old lawnmower blade.  I just bought an arc welder and I want to use the dolly to move it around, so the trailer has been "un-re-purposed" (which involved removing 2 bolts).

the multi purpose trolley is a good idea , i also try to make things that multi tasks like the hiller tines which can furrow cut for planting potatoes as well & the 3 point tool bar for the hillers & tow hitch ,

 

the hiller tines can be used separately too in turned around & point down for ground row marking 

 

i still got some hair brained ideas to try yet myself , but  we got to have a go or we don't learn nothing
