Great job...
I see the mountains in the background. I drove through your area years ago. Lewiston is a beautiful place.

Thanks all, It was fun (as always) to make this. I added the weight trays as I felt it was not digging in deep enough. the sleeve hitch worked great. tho a little difficult to raise it with all the wt on in. the teetha are 24 inches from the back plate, thinking of shortening the arm by 3" might make it slightly easier to raise. and the drive belts were slipping so need to adjust them

Nice job. It looks to work well.

My son is 12 and had trouble lifting the plow. I put a spring from the bottom of the lift handle towards the front of the tractor to help a little. Also, there are 3 holes down there, one of them may give you better leverage, while not lifting the implement quite so much.

How big of a spring. I like the idea of it.

It surprised me how good it did work, dug right in, the tractor would only pull it in 1st. started slipping in other gears, need to adjust.

I like your cultivator. Looks like it should do the job. Some type of spring assist on your lift would be a plus.

Wow, that looks better than some store bought ones. Very nice. Did you buy the sleeve hitch attach part? If so where?
