Tomorrow will be a much better day! Think I just needed a day away for the shop. Usually out there 8 days a week.

Usually at least one day every couple of weeks I just say nope not going out there or I'll just go out and burn a tank of gas out of one of the bike and have a completely non-productive day.  I think we all need days like that to recharge your batteries.

Alan, got some pics of what the levers do for this. Moving them back, swings the outside forward. I did one each way so you guys could see.

I put the Brinly hitch on the Cub and set it down. It's about 11.5" off the ground at the top, which is just about what I would like for this. Thinking of taking the 'tab' off it and set up two pieces of 1/4" X 2" angle irons set with the down parts together in the center. Might have to space them apart, but holes could be drilled to match the existing ones and bolt this together.

 

Still not sure about doing this as the Cub is 36"+ across the tires and the 'vator is only 33". Wouldn't take out tire tracks. Unless I put wider teeth on the outside. Still mulling things over. Might get a few more pics later today. Also kind of worried about the weight, this is not lightweight.

I've decided not to set this up for the Cub. Just too heavy and way back. I put the blade I bought when at Daniels plow day on and had to run the lift assist spring in a bunch just to make it work. The cultivator would be 6" further back and heavier. This would work real well on a two-wheel unit with front weight. May just put it in the classifieds.

 

Here's the hitch on the Cub.

Thus is what I was talking about on the angle iron.

And here's the grader blade.

I could modify it for 3-point and hydraulic lift, but it would take some metal replacement. First, it would need to be wider, all my hydro lift tractors are about 46" wide at the tires. So I would have to add 14-16" of width. I also noticed the far RH tine on this is supposed to be in the center. One must have broken and they moved it out there. I could make the new tine, just whether I can get it heat treated right to hold the bend.

 

I was going to take it to the show to see about selling, but the have changed their rules for selling. Anything with a for sale sign on it makes you a vendor. IF I sold something, I might go that way. But no guarantee that will happen.
