I'll nominate my older model York rake.  I found this at an auction in '09 while I was collecting JD carts.  I never expected to ever even see one, let alone own one!  And with the optional swing-down blade.

The sale was 25 miles from home, so I didn't even take a trailer.  Bought the York rake & a JD #7 cart for $50/each, fortunately, our LP gas delivery man was there with his trailer & offered to haul them home for me!  

 

The rake was dismantled for repaint that winter, also adding a parking stand:

I use the rake for tractor shows & to care for my gravel drive.  ~~  Lowell

 I will nominate my 1976 Massey Ferguson 12 and my pipe loader.  I got this tractor about four years ago. $700.00 for the tractor, 42" mower deck, tiller, with optional extension, snow thrower and cab.  I used all of the attachment for a while and decided to make a loader. The loader stays on most of the time now, but is only one bolt and one pin the remove it from the tractor. 

 I have always liked the MF 135 style of tractor. So I when to the MF dealer and they gave me a diagram of a # 38 loader, most people call it a pipe loader.  Also looked at pictures and started thinking. So it is made out of muffler pipe. Got the shop to bend it for me. Bought the other metal at a local welding shop. Started making it and plans changed some. Lifting it was a lot work to figure out, but it turned out ok. So a winch lifts and lowers it. The bucket was made by a local metal shop, I have no way to bend metal, then to figure out where to put the bolts so it would empty it's self. It is a manual trip bucket and automatic reset when the bucket is lowered to the ground.

 It was made for looks and going to parades and shows, but started to use it for work. It's fun and useful to operate. Have broken it a few times, but fixed it up. Grass clippings, snow, dirt, mulch, rock dust, saw dust, yard clean up are a few of the things it has been used for. It's kind of dirty and used looking now, but was nice when I first finished it. Got the decals from the MF dealer. It will lift 30 pounds or so, but if you have it in the up position it will hold more when it's filled by hand.  

 It is one of my favorite attachments that I like to use. Oh, and its great for spreading salt on the driveway in the winter.  I have wondered at times how useful a real hydraulic loader would be.

 Hope you like it.  Noel

I assume you mean that it can lift 300 pounds?
