I think I'm going to try it, just have to watch where it is hooked so I don't bend/break something else. I am going to drill another hole in the sleeve between the two toward the tractor. Then it won't be trying to lift the tractor off the ground so bad. At least I have the other bar to try using weights. Just have to build a weight box that will work on these implements.

try straighten then weld an angle iron (1x1x1/4) to your bar if you got clearance for if not try a smaller angle iron
that way you can use the slotted hole and pin that are on your bar

lyall, I was planning to cut the ends of this bar and using them on the pipe. I have another bar just like this one(but not bent) with the slot for the tiller and 10" plow.

I bought a set of cheap bath scales to weight things for the GT's. Thought I would weight the rear blade I have. It comes in at 55 lbs. Here is a diagram of it.

For any Sears fans out there, the only difference between this and the 3 point version is part # 11(#14 on 3 point). I have thought of making another quadrant(# 11) so i could adjust the how aggressive it cuts. That's another brain smoker. LOL

At least I'm finding all the weak spots. Well, a few any way. And the weakest ones.
What do you think about using the 1" pipe for a replacement?


That's what I built my lift bar from. Will get you picture.
