It would probably be quicker to name the things that aren't homemade or custom, but here we go;
halfscale Caterpillar D2
halfscale Minneapolis Moline jetstar orchard
halfscale Case spirit of 76 w/duals
halfscale Massey 1100
halfscale JohnDeere 4010 hi crop w/ cultivators
halfscale Minneapolis Moline G706
half scale John Deere no57 3 bottom plow
halfscale New Idea wagon
single bottom rollover plow
transport syle plastic layer for garden tractor
and the list of what i'm working on is even longer, i was always told that you don't leave this earth until you complete what your'e supposed to, figure i'm good til about 150


We used to have a 1270 Agri King on our farm. I would love to see a picture of that 1570 Spirit of 76'.

Very nice 3 point! Where did you get those pivot points on the top of the lift links? I have seen those before just can't remember on what.

I built the pivots using 3/4 threaded rod, long hex nuts and flat bar steel.

NICE ! ! ! I'm looking at the possibility of adding a cat #0 to my 5-speed JD 116. Have a few ideas in mind and want to be able to power the tiller (not made for a JD 116) with a hydro motor.

:smile1: Over the years I've owned JD Garden Tractors, I've made a number of attachments for a 110, a 140, and now a 318. I don't have pictures of all of them, but here are pictures of a few:
- A crane for the 140, now ported to the 318
- A trailer ball for the front of the tractor (shown here on the 318)
- A rake system for the 140 that can be raised using the 140's hydraulic lift

I've also made a dirt/gravel blade for the 140 that I can change from belly to rear, but don't have pictures of it.

Here is an attachment that I built for my Ford 6640. It is a category 2 "Lift and Tow" that I built to move cars and trucks around the junk yard.It works really well.

Nice. Looks plenty strong, and professionally built.

Besides the trailer, I made a 'tooth bar' that is more of a dirt rake for loosening soil, a tow hitch for moving tractors around, and a sleeve hitch to Class 3 hitch adapter. Several years back, I made the pull around hoist.
