The aerator is awesome, where did you find it?
I like that log carrier....
what is the biggest log you have moved with it?
only "unusual" implement we have is the remenants of a wood framed beaver slide. ran off a pto winch setup on the back of a 40s IH pickup.winch line runs to the top over a pulley and down to the forks. run the winch in it powers the forks up the inclined frame and dumps into the stack. let the clutch in to let the line back out and the forks decend. if i had a scanner id post pics of it in use back in the 50s of my grandather and greatgrand father putting up loose hay.
How about an ice cream maker? Oh, you meant attachments that exist...
Someone must have something 'off the wall'!?!?
This is just a thread to post all of you cool or rare attachments and explain them (if needed). Any attachment that you find interesting!
Chain harrows aren't rare - or even unusual. But I think the way I have mine set up possibly makes it one of a kind. I purchased four 4'x4' heavy duty (5/8") tine sections and an 8' pull bar, then connected them into the 8'x8' configuration you see in the photo. I next added three sides to the pull bar, used sections of 1.5" drilling pipe. Finally I fabricated a six foot removable extension to my boom pole to lift the whole thing.
P.S. it's for sale by the way, for anybody that's interested.
Since you guys mentioned the ice cream maker I will post a picture. I took this about a year ago in Northern Maine. The tractor is an old Farmall F-12 and the ice cream maker is truely PTO driven.
Big thanks for pic!
I hope that fellow in pic though does'nt sit there when shaft is spinning or that ice cream flavor could be chocolate!
It is mechanical linkage, too bad the 8N's didn't have a power steering option, it's a bear to turn. Power steering came out on the 600s but they are a little longer so the grader would have to have been modified to fit. Since we only know of less than 50 of these in existance, kinda figured it should remain as designed. It was made for Dearborn by MB Companies in New Holstien Wisconsin. The thing on the back is a berm leveler for grading roads.Yep, that is truly some ingenious thinking and engineering! Tell me, how the steering done? Mechanical linkage, or is there some sort of hydraulic setup to turn it???
Okay, I can see the versatility factor.
However, I still contend, that unlike a roll-off truck that delivers a dumpster to me and can easily load up a full one without losing everything; the mechanism that does the hooking and switching has WAY to much of a vertical motion/lift to it.
If I've used the trailer to get a load of anything that is on pallets. I can't leave it on the trailer bed and swap to something with sides to go pick up mulch.
My versatility has been lost. So why would I want such an animal.
How many times are you in the midst of something and switch gears to another project or need to bring a different attachment to bare on the work at hand. To me, this rather expensive looking 'tool' fails me when I need it the most.
It's probably more useful for someone who sets a bin or some such in one place for a time and has to move it only occasionally. I can see produce farmers using something like this. They may have ten bins that are strategically placed throughout an orchard or field to collect the harvest.
I'm not sure what you'd use the flat deck for. I suppose if you had a LOT of faith in your chains or straps you could load it with equipment.
