Hi all, I started a new implement build and thought I'd post here rather then on the PK forum as this will be usable with any GT with a Cat 0 3 pt hitch So here's the $2.00 question what is it??

HMMMMM? With out dimensions to know which way it will sit when hooked to the 3-point, kinda hard to guess! Is the angle plate a digging tool?

Maybe some kind of dirt bucket?  What ever it is it's going to be heavy with all the 2" square tubing.

A tater digger maybe?

 

That's what came to my mind right off the hop

Couldn't see this implement used in hard packed soil, but I could be wrong

One 1 person knows for sure what it is at this moment

Hi ya you guys must have put your thinking caps on :dancingbanana:  yes on the dirt grate, the plan is to use 1/2" rod approx 16" long with the aft 3" bent down spaced 1.5" apart still trying to work out a system to shake the grate one idea is a 12v motor and a cam with a rod attached to the grate another is to find a steel wheel about 6/8" in diameter and cut the spokes uneven turn the hub 180 degrees and that would make the grated move up & down got some welding done this morning

A steel wheel with a hole drilled out from center a bit would work. Attach a piece of strap iron to that and the grate. Works like a crank shaft.

I thought you were talking about me for a second.

They do make a 12 vibrating motor, not cheap though. https://static.grain...7_AS01?$mdmain$

I too figured it was a tater digger. I grow taters and always lookin for better ideas for a tater digger. I will follow along and see the end result.
