    And I'm alleged to know about computers - you'd never know.

    Here's the picture of the BH dolly

    This one's for the Farmi logging winch. There is a cleat under the lip of the plow to be sure it doesn't slip off. This one had to be custom built to get the weight distribution right so it wouldn't tip over.

    Peter -- Noticed you had the kubota BH. Just out of curiousity, why did you choose that over the Woods? How satisfied are you with it?

    I like it, but the woods is a fine machine too. I used to have a B2400 with a Woods 6500. It was fine, but awfully small. When I got the 2910 I went with the kubota rather than the woods 7500 because I wanted a 3PH model and my dealer would only rig the woods with a frame.

    Not to start the religious war again, but I personally prefer the 3PH mount and that's really what drove the decision. The woods frame causes the BH to hang further out behind the tractor making the front end even lighter which I didn't like, and the frame hangs low to the ground reducing clearance. Although it doesn't matter to me, the woods frame is not compatible with an under belly mower so you might consider that and/or confirm if that's the case with your 3010. Clearly in favor of the woods and it's frame mount are consistent reports that the whole tractor/BH assembly has a "tighter" feel to it.

    Sharp eyes. Those shoes got a lot of use this year. There was no other way to venture off the shovelled paths.

    Default warning warning - cheap casters

    I'm now paying the price for cheap casters on my dollies. The mover's dollies I bought at home depot for about $25 each seem to sieze up more than they roll. The casters wedge in a direction (never the desired direction) and it's near impossible to get them straightened out.

    The only dolly that works like a dream is the one I built for the backhoe. I bought heavy duty casters to carry the weight, and they have two ball bearing races so they rotate and roll with ease. They were around $25 each which hurts, but they work. I can literally give the BH a light shove and it will roll across the barn in a straight line.

    As a first measure, I'm going to try using two of the cheap dollies for each implement on the theory that less weight on each wheel will reduce the binding. Last resort will be to buy the expensive casters. My fuel barrel rolls around pretty well which indicates that lighter loading works.

    I learned that the hard way myself, Hayden.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img] It's been awhile back, but I learned to be sure the casters are made to handle the weight I intend to put on them. In fact, I think I've still got a couple of cheap ones laying in the shop that I should throw away.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    I'll second (or third) that. I bought casters at Home Depot too - I believe they are rated for 150 lb each, which should be fine for the four corners of a stand for a 410 lb tiller, but they seem to roll pretty poorly. I'd like to get rid of casters alltogether and put on solid rubber tires if I can find them someplace. It seems like any type of casters are just going to pick up a small amount of grit, then get gummed up.

    Harbor Freight has hard rubber tires/castors as well as pneumatic tires/castors.
