I used the heck outta it the last 2 days, moved the Custom 6 and Custom 7 to their new parking spots with it.

I also moved an 8 cu ft fridge to the other side of the shed. The only time it got lite on the front wheels was when moving the 7 with snow blade on it, as I had the hook point all the way back to keep from bumping the grill on the tractor I was towing.

That flat stock is a piece of 3/4". Don't think it will give to much.

Kenny,
I think your mock up would work. Definitely should pick an engine pretty easily as long as everything is disconnected before lifting LOL. <see funny tool definitions thread>

I think you will bend the flat stock on the hitch before making the front end too light on the tractor. Maybe add two pieces of angle iron to the underside of the flat stock? I know it is pretty thick, judging by the picture I am guessing 1/2". You could always try it with a lighter load and see if it flexes. You can always add stiffeners later.

MH81, Glad its working for you.

Wow, pictures can be deceiving LOL. Ya, 3/4" should hold up pretty good.

Went ahead and put some paint on it. Closest thing on the shelf to Sears Orange was Old Kubota Orange. the white is IH Cub White.

They're close enough. LOL

Looks good. I use Duplicolor ceremic heat paint in DE1620 Chevy Orange for Case/Springfield orange cause it is flashy. :D
