I know these are not in the correct order, but there are so many that I thought you folks would enjoy.
That's all for this post. Will add the rest in the next. Enjoy!

I think this is an awesome build and would do one similar, but I would have to remove my current PTO shaft. My thanks to Keith for permission to post these and I hope it will help others in their quest for a 3 point hitch.

On the 3 point hitch I see the pully on the bottom of the pto shaft, would I use the front pulleys from the motor that runs the mower? Did he make the frame for the mid pulley?

That 16 HP Homelite/Jacobsen sounds like a good unit to get if the price is right. Cabs are scarce, snowblower would be good for the area you live in, & a 48 deck would be real nice to have. May just need something simple to get it to fire. Good luck.

Kenny, my 3 point hitch would work wonderfully with the factory pto with the lift lever on the right side, like it is on a few of the pics before I added its own dedicated cylinder and aux. Hydraulics . I can't use the factory pto setup because of my diesel engine choice .

I guess I could remove the right bracket and shaft and put a pillow block and new shaft across. Have to look at this closer.

hmm... Looks like a Bolens tiller.
If you look closely,you'll note that there are more Bolens parts there.There is also a Bolens Tube Frame PTO under there.
Like I told you back a long while ago,very nice fabrication.

Bolens 1000 and Maynard, he knows how to make what is available work. Brand doesn't matter. He'll find a way to make it work.

WOW! NICE! Looks good, Keith. What size shaft is the main lift on? Where did you get the locking collars for it?
Top shaft is 1" and the collars are from the hardware store, they are split lock collars. The center top link mount has one half welded to each boss so you can tighten them in any given position to control the "roll" of your implement :)
