Been fighting ice on the roads around the ranch I finaly did something (fell down too many times, equipment sliding around). I made a 2" reciever hitch for the front of the masseys out off some scrap iron I had laying around. If I every have a frame stripped down I would cut it into the front bumper. It would work perfect. Anyway here is the spreader with a few minor modifications so far. Until I use it more I'm sure I will making some more. If I ever find a front blade I will move the spreader to the back of the tractor.

It's not made for sand but that's what Im using. Well see how long it lasts. I wanted to make my own that would run off a belt on the side like the early snowthrowers did.

Very nice looking MF's

Sand has to be really dry and clean to work in a small spreader like that.

I once had to shovel out a spreader that I put 400# of sand into!

Looks like you're set.

Would you happen to have any more detailed pictures of the suit case weight

bracket, on that great looking yellow one? What make weights are those?

Great job on the spreader. Those are 2 very nice tractors. They look great in yellow! In fact I personally like yellow as a colour for most brands.

 What make weights are those?

 

Unibuilt weights are built by Dave Knapp in west central Illinois. There are 10 pound cast weights. Here is an Ebay auction with some available: http://www.ebay.com/...4137326?lpid=82

Tommy, it was not produced in yellow. I painted it Massey industrial yellow because it has a 16hp Tec. in it and some other replaced parts, and Massey did use this color on some of there mid size tractors.
