    I got the extension made to make the mount positions wider. They seem to work pretty good, i am going to make the center home deeper so they will go on farther, but other than that it looks preety good. I atttached a sketch if anyone one is interested in making a set.

Took me a minute to figure out what you were working on. Now I see. Sears' skinny Cat 0 implements so they work with regular Cat 0. That's cool!

I hope this is the early stage and you are adding a brace on each side to the tool bar.

Looks good. Very simple solution that leaves the Sears a Sears without a lot of mods. :thumbs:
I will second the possible need for a little support on those extensions so they won't bend the original piece.

Yeah, you have to be careful with those Sears limited CAT 0 implements.

 

Put them behind some of the larger GTs out there, and you can turn them into pretzels in short order.

That's what I was thinkin...in an established garden, probably no issues, but if you have rocks, roots, etc that may not have been reached before, snagging one when pulling with a large machine like that, would trash a lite cultivator and you may not even feel it!  I actually like to use my lightest tractor to cultivate...if I snag something, the tires will spin long before anything gives.

 

 

 

Beautiful work though!  I'd love to turn out custom parts like that! :thumbs:
