Looks just like the Gannon Earthcavator that I have for my Allis Chalmers, except mine is yellow. Did you fabricate that from scratch? Good Luck, Rick

Looks like it came out of a factory!  Nice work, to say the least.

Looks very nice but the pictures leave a lot of questions. Did you make a drawing or did you do it all on the fly. Would love to see a video of it in action. Thanks for the pictures. Don

Here's a few more pics during the build I drew all the flat parts and cut them out on a CNC plasma table 20171125_162539.jpg 20171125_162220.jpg 20171125_151621.jpg 20171125_140739.jpg 20171125_130830.jpg 20171124_194101.jpg 20171123_160528.jpg 20171123_140408.jpg 20171121_171409.jpg 20171121_161107.jpg

They are fun to use. I smooth out my gravel driveway with mine each spring after the frost breakup is over. Try to find and copy a 60" for using with that HT-23. You will be even happier. I wish that I could weld as nicely as you do. Good Luck, Rick

Excellent work!  

How much time do you figure it took you from start to finish?

Someone will have to explain the procedure for the Quote option to me. It took me a long time to measure and layout all the parts also as with a lot of the things I fab for myself I made double of everything so I'm 40 hours in and have one complete minus paint and one 75% fabbed they are a bit more complicated than I originally thought and I was really trying to produce a quality finished product
