    Default L-39 SKID PLATE & PUSH BAR UPGRADE

    TBN'ers:

    After close to a year of owning my L-39, I finally got the time to make a skid plate for it. It is similar to the skidplate I made for my BX 2200, with the exception that the L-39 skidplate attaches by homemade "U" bolts to the loader frame. The BX 2200 skidplate attaches to the midmount mower frame. If you do a search, you can find that project.

    The skid plate is made of 3/16" steel plate that I got from the dump for $5.00. It's purpose is to stop the snap-up branches & trees when operating in wooded areas.

    I also welded 1/8" perforated steel plate to the front push bar,
    again to protect the tractor nose from branches/sticks etc.

    I'll be posting photos of this project to follow this post.

    Note that TSC brand "kubota Orange" does not match the present Kubota orange. It is more yellow tinted. Oops....
