Finally getting around to putting a 3-pt on my Bolens HT23.
I got part of the mounts built, I should finish tomorrow if all goes as planned. I will get it cleaned up and painted once it is working, right now I need to do a lot of grinding and smooth over everything.
I couldn't find anyplace for the lift cylinder, I finally came up with mounting it behind the 3-pt and having it pull down to lift. I hope this design works, I don't know why it wouldn't? my cylinder is big enough it should have plenty of power so I don't think leverage will be much of an issue?.
I'm afraid of this 3-pt lifting the back of the tractor off the ground and then I can't go. Can I make this a one way cylinder if I plug the bottom of the cylinder and just hook a hose to the top???
Let me know what you think?
