    Looking good Jim.

    A set of forks is on my "to-do (eventually) list"

    I wanted some quick attach to keep the load close for more payload. The entire project cost me about $200. I got the forks at a u-pull-it auto salvage for $50 with the center mounting bar. Got the grill and 2x4 1/4 inch thick new tube steel from an Amish scrapyard he got it all but is costly $80. The 4x4 angle I scrounged from a tenant at the phila navy yard. It was 12 feet long and had a slight bend so I took my back hoe JD410 and reshaped it over a rock +/- 1/8 inch. used my miller210 and banged it out. used 3 point pins and bushings and used a stainless steel trailer hitch to fab the stop and cut some drawn over mandrel pipe to make connection to the tractor. works great. As soon as I can figure out photobucket I got the whole build on digital camera.

    I took a pix of the big rock used to bend the 4 inch angle iron.
