Great Job!!! Excellent use of existing stuff. TY for using some safety with the springs.

Thanks for the Video too!

I would put those garage door springs inside a pipe or something in case they broke. Then you wouldn't have them flying all over or possibly at you. Those things can be dangerous. Could run a cable through them.



I was thinking the same thing! At least run a piece of cable thru them and attach it for the longest throw (bucket in dump position). Had one of those big-uns fly apart not to far from my head & They scare the hell outta me now. Lotta stored energy in a spring.

That is looking good there Dan. Some decals on it, take it to a show and watch the people scratch their heads as to if IH ever made a rear scoop for the super A.
