    Can't take a photo right now be we have made one that works good. Its a heavy roller for 3 point. Used a crossbar that goes on the lower two arms, and a 55 gallon drum. Cut the drum to the width of the crossbar, filled with concrete, and let it set. Its a roller, and it weights 800 pounds! My dad was a structural engineer so he was able to figure out the cubic inches and how much it would weight. Between him and I we don't have a front loader on anything but it would probably make a good counterweight/ ballast as well. We have been quite impressed with it!

    I made a box blade that I use to level the driveway in the spring and move snow in the winter.

    Question: where did you purchase the cutting edge? Also, how far did you drop the edge below the frame?
    Nice land plane by the way.

    Started this thread yesterday: http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/b...heap-part.html
    This rake is just for pine needles and any leaves that happen to get mixed in. It was also to prove I could do it.
    Here's my initial entry:

I decided I could do something similar and attach it to my King Kutter carry-all. Here are the results:

    9. 5/16 flat washers, qty: 60 or so
    10. 5/16 fender washers, qty: 4


    Construction:
    1. The two 19 pieces of angle were used to hold the two square tubes together. Four 5/16" - 2" bolts were used to connect the pieces. I had to adjust these as I put the teeth on.
    2. The hay rake teeth were spaced every 5 holes on the square tubes. The spacing of the holes on the tubes and angle iron were 1 so that the teeth are space at 5 intervals. The hay rake teeth also have a slight dogleg bend at the bottom and I made sure they all faced the same direction. The flat washers and lock washers were used to take up some space between the bar and hay rake teeth as needed. Except for tines that were on both the angle and square tube every other tine was double lock washered and used 4 flat washers.
    3. The 2 pieces of angle iron cut 5" long, the 5/16 bolts - 5"??ス??ス long, 4 fender washers, 2 lock washers, 2 5/16 nuts were used to make clamps to hold to the King Kutter Carry-all. The clamps were spaced to fit the carry-all.
    4. The rake was connected to the Carry-all with the dogleg of the tines facing inwards toward the tractor.


    Performance:
    I determined how low I wanted it to go and set the stopper on my draft control to that. To try it out I used it on some pine needles that were on a slope. Results:
    1. The rake was pulling the pine needles along, but it was also digging into the ground. I'm going to try flipping the rake 180??ー so that the dogleg of the tines faces away from the tractor.
    2. After the tines had raked all the needles it could rake I needed to lift the tines out of the pile, but the Carry-all would not raise it high enough. This is just due to the dimensions of the Carry-all. To fix this I'm going to have fabricate a 3 point hitch that will allow me to lift it higher. I will post pictures of that when I get it done. The plan is to use angle iron.

    If a wire wasn't shorted it wouldn't work. What you have is an intermittent open!

    Electronics is smoke and magic. If you let the smoke out of something it doesn't work anymore - the magic is getting the smoke back in.

    I made this for cleaning up tree branches after felling a tree. The tines can float to follow terrain or be arrested. I cut off part of my finger when pulling this thing off in the dark and finding it had a nasty pinch hazzard on account of that floating design.
