that acttuly looks pretty darn good, i like the inenuity for the switch, i never would have thought to use a washer for a stop, good work. i also like that you were able to keep the drawbar.

After I put the three point on I really missed the drawbar for pulling trailers. It took me awhile to come up with that even though it is so simple. Works great and doesn't get in the way of the three point.

I think I would rather have that than a 3pt drawbar, for somethings. Does the trailer toungue hit the arms on a tight turn?

Only if I don't have three point lifted up all the way.

I thought I'd post some links to some videos I took of my PK doing various tasks. They are kind of scattered about and I figured to make them easier to find, I'll post them here as well.

Here is one of me plowing the only bit of real snow we got this year.

Here is just the other day when I was moving some horse manure piles. My camera doesn't like the cold and the max video length is 3 minutes, so the video is short but you can get the idea.

Once my camera charges, I'll go take a picture of the finished pile.

Nice, but there's no way I would be using a tractor that good looking in the manure pile!

I like your box of "window weights" under the tractor, we had a bunch of those around when I was a kid, kinda wish I still had some, very compact weight.

It does work great. I'm not sure I could do a lot of what I do without it. I don't have wheel weights so I put weight on the three point for traction and the belly weight keeps the front end on the ground for steering. Also helps when moving piles. Rarely do a wheeling pushing up over the pile.
