Alright you guys, sorry for the crappy pics but here is the rake!

I think I will eventually in the near future add some tires like this

But make them be able to lift off of the ground to be able to use the full weight of the rake.

 

Once I have the tires on the rake, I think I will try my hand on making the dump bucket that attaches to the sleeve hitch.

 

Thanks for looking guys

Hey Guys,

 

So I gave the rake a try!

Building up a small pile

but she still has a lot to go!

I think it worked great but I found myself having to put my whole weight on the bar trying to lift it up after about the 3rd time. Eventually, I started getting off and lifting it up on top of the pile I was dragging to help out. For those that have a rake, would you be able to tell me what length you have between the sleeve hitch pin and the pivot pin/bolt? I know putting tires will help but I feel like that length of the bar might be a little to long as well.

 

Thanks for looking,

GhoSt

Looks good on the tractor.  I want one of those rakes but I was going to use it for rocks.  That's what I typically see them called "rock rake".

Yea I think your right! But I don't have any rocks. These sticks are just as happy being dragged around lol

If you shorten that tongue, it will lift easier! You've got it way back there!

I second that, I would start by bring it in by a third and see how it operates. Then you can decide if you need to tweak it further.

 

Good luck, its looking good   :thumbs:

Hey Guys,

 

I bought some hiller shovels similar to brinlys bb-221 for the tool bar. Considering that I will need a cultivator sooner rather then later, I figured the dump cart can wait since I can use my wheel barrel in the mean time and instead try to make me something as close to brinly's toolbar as possible since I think is pretty neat. So I went online and found a thread that had most of the measurements and this is what I came up with:

 

Brinly%20TT-100%20Copy_zps1phkaxtj.png

 

Haven't put the dimensions on it yet but I will be working on this first after I am done with the rake or probably while working on the rake. Tooo many holes to drill. Think Ill drill a little here and a little there lol

 

Anyways,

Thanks for looking

GhoSt

Unless you already have the angle iron, just buy a piece with all the holes already drilled.  I have several pieces in the barn, and it's fairly tough to drill through, considering its gauge.

Can you buy the angle iron predrilled or are you telling me to have it made somewhere? I had already sent a drawing to a small fab shop that has done some minor stuff for me to see if it is worth it to me but if I can buy it already predrilled the better!

 

Thanks in advance,

Jesse

Buy it pre drilled, if you can find it in the proper gauge.  Even if what you find is on the light side, you can weld in some reinforcement rods to strenghten it.  I had some fairly tough pieces (for their size... think the legs of old-school stand-alone garage shelving) that I used to hang the rear attachment point when I "modified" my '65 Jake to hold my '60 Cub plow, and the stuff burnt up the metal blades on my Sawzall cutting it.  If you gotta buy it, buy it drilled, and save the expense of having it drilled.

Hey Duke,

 

Thanks for the recommendation. Unfortunately locally I couldn't find anything really worth using plus the added cost of steel to reinforce what I do have available and well, aesthetics too if I am to be honest. I think I will continue on with my original plan. I was given a quote to have the part cut via water jet and the price, I don't think, isn't to bad for a one off piece.

 

Thanks again,

GhoSt

Hey guys,

 

Just a small update :D

 

DSCN3182_zps1n1qjr4u.jpg

 

Also, would anybody be kind enough to supply me with these missing dimensions?

 

Brinly%20TT-100%20Top%20Bar_zpsdnurocmv.

 

Brinly%20TT-100%20Copy2_zpswpco8idu.png

 

The only picture that I found with a measuring tape is at an angle that makes it hard to tell accurately what they are.

And one more.

Got the rest of the steel to finish it off :D

 

DSCN3190_zpsevmtb7fn.jpg

 

Only thing different is, instead of using a 5/8" top bar, I'll be using a 3/4" because that is all they had. Hopefully I'll finish it up this weekend. Not sure how I am going to make the shanks but I bought the 3/4" round stock for them too.

 

Thanks for looking,

GhoSt
