So out with the mig , grinder & hammer lol & this is what i come up with 

 

P4290070.JPG  < this was the start of the lift arms & 3 point tool bar  & hiller & furrow tines 

 

this is the 3 point & tool bar nearly finished & 2 hiller/furrow tines tacked up for welding & tow hitch finished ready to use P4300075.JPG the tow hitch just bolts with 1 big bolt just nice

This is my Rover Rancher 2P9080186.JPG i have refitted the tires & changed the gear box to a 5 speed & made every thing else includeing lights , stainless steel hood cover ect ect 

 

,1970's which had a push blade & front load skid slasher & self drive rotary hoe rear fit on small 3 point linkage  

 

it is a light application garden Tractor here in Australia unlike the Howard which was a heavier machine , bigger  tires cast iron diff & such made in the 60's & 70's like your early machines 

 

this was the 1st ground rip with the hiller/furrow tines P5010089.JPG

That's got a long wheelbase! The rip looks good!

Kenny, the wheelbase is the same as the MTD 2001 13,38 & JD Sabre 2002 17.5, 42 riders within the inch

Looks pretty cool! Your fab skills look good, if you only had a heavier Tractor you would be really be able to have fun. It's really challenging to make a lite duty machine do the work of a heavier duty unit. In most cases it causes more effort than needed and something breaks, or it just won't do what you intended and leads to great frustration.
I have been there..... and in some cases still there LOL. Keep up the good work!!

I meant the length. It looks much longer.

SHOP Time , hell yeah just loved it getting creative for a change ,crazy with welder & grinder but the funny thing is it takes longer to find what i'm going to use than it does to make it. A week to plan & a day or two to make 

 

As for the tractor it is a tad light for a good job but it is slow & straight axle ( not diff )which helps a lot

 

in the middle of making a bigger GT ut no camera atm

Hey holdenboy, good fabrication and its doing the job, what is your intended use for it looks like it will be good for hilling up rows.

it is to be universal tool, hilling & furrow cutting for potatoes & such as well, but i have to make 2x 1/2 tine's so i can have more width between the rows 

 the test dig was in hard sod, drove on ect, but built it heavy so to use on a bigger GT later
