Well, I've got the plow from JimD set in place, no drilling or cutting etc. yet... If the distance to ground is O.K. none should be needed. Just a cross brace added to top. If too close to ground I will need to shorten the legs and re-mount cross braces.
I can't measure my other plow mounts because they are at my son's houses for plowing !! The only one here is the 4 wd Kubota that I sorta inherited from My BIL and it is pretty high off the ground. (but is a BIGGER tractor too)
So the question is what is a normal distance from ground to mount ? Seems like this is really close.
Control handle seems O.K.
This tractor is becoming a mixture of components for sure. Of the small Gt size tractors Momma likes this one the best, so trying to make it work for her when I can't. I like the 782 best but it smokes some nowadays and she has COPD, the 100 works great but has limited mowing with the Mott. The other Cubs have all moved to son's houses, or are in pieces, not running etc.
