You should be able to find what you need, can get them in many different sizes and shapes, wonderful service and always quick on the orders, they will even call you if needed which is unheard of these days unless it is a bill collector.

And here she is, ready for work.

What is the thing that sticks out from the back of the tractor?

Appropriately called the ''stinger'' counter weights, attached to the lifting handle via a rod under the seat pan to the sleeve hitch, it aids in lifting the snow thrower or plow and added weight to the tractor.

Around the stinger is another weight called a ''donut'', added weight that can be locked into place on any part of the stinger, shown in the picture below is one locked in place at the end of the stinger weight.

Also shown below is the front counter weight for rear mounted tillers and such, also attaches to the lifting handle.

50 today with sun so...

Worked on the dozer blade all moring, few welds had cracked and bottom brace broke, bend back into shape and re welded

.

Adjustment shoes were worn down to nothing, weld on some new spring steel from a old 42 inch saw blade, grind down and build up with welds,...good enough.

 

DISCLAIMER : Have been doing this for years and have had tools break on me, out in the open, NOT in the shop, this can be fatal and painful if you are not careful or know how much stress a tool can take.

Yesterday evening Squire 9 stopped moving when i started up the driveway, i thought the axle snapped.

 

Tim from Simple TrACtors relayed some advice and i dove into the differential. As you see below the tension (roll) pins has snapped off.

 

Allis donated her diff. gear and re-torqued the limited slip bolts to 20 lb.
