Not in the plan Will.  The way I had to work around the radiator mounts & all, I don't want to put major stresses out front.  I will not mount any weights on the bumper because of this either.  It's plenty strong for the bumper, but that's about it. 

 

Yeah, you don't want to end up tearing it apart, and besides that, putting tow

hooks on the front, may look like you're walking into the kitchen to cook something,

carrying a fire extinguisher. :(

Decided to take it easier today & break from fencing.  Got the tires swapped from the MF2055, and weights all mounted too.

Nice to see those AGs on there. :thumbs:

I saw in one of your pics a few days ago, you had those other girly

tires hidden behind the shop-vac, and some other piece of sheet

metal. :D  Busted!!!! :smilewink:

Had to go back to see what pics you were talking about.   I didn't do a good enough job hiding the girly tires did I?  :D    Wasn't sheet metal though....was my floor scooter.  :smilewink:

I still have to put the bracket that bolts to the front of the transaxle, then to the frame rails.  Might get that done Saturday.  Then it'll be time to start putting the 3pt lift back on.  That's gonna take a little time, as I have to build lower arm brackets, and a complete upper lift shaft assembly.

Yep, 26x12x12 Carlisle "Super lug".  I prefer them over the newer "Tru Power".  And yes, the fronts are 18x8.50/8

I got the front hydro to frame brace installed.  Beautiful weather here, so took her for a spin.  I can tell right off this tractor will be a mad max plowing machine!  In high range full throttle, I can pull the engine down with the brakes pretty good, but in low range the brakes (which are great brakes) can't pull her down!  Going to start looking at how I need to attach & build the 3 point lift system next.

Yes, I do now and love it!

That just might happen!   :D   But then again I may just use the single 12"er...jury is still out on that.  I'm working on the 3pt for the tractor now.  Pics later today.
