I finally got it all fabricated and attached. It works like a dream with the electric actuator.

Looks better than OEM since they don't use the angle Iron.  Great job.

Better than new with the wonderful asset of switch flipping to go up and down.

BTW where did you get the top link, well in your case the back link?   I am looking for a shorter one to make it easier to mount my Sears Roto-Spade to the back of my JD 140.

Actually, it was a 6 or 8 inch link, but I cut and welded it together to make the shorter one you see. I cut an inch off of each rod end threaded part also.

BTW, I wanted something a little different for a hitch pin. Something I could grab even with thick gloves on. So I made it out of 5/8" drill rod and 3/8" mild steel round stock.

You got some skill man! looks great.

 

How thick was the flate stock you bent for the lower hitch? I have a factory one and yours looks a bit heavier that it.

 

 

That pin looks great... bigger so it's easier to find when it pops out in the field..... :wallbanging: yeah it's happened
