My solution for tying up the hydraulic hoses when using the 3 point. I tie wrapped two rings to the hoses and then just hang them with a "J" hook to the back of the seat frame. Simple, quick and neat.

sigh....wife chose wrong type of string beans for garden. they grew ok. but...not what we wanted. so 90ft of string beans tilled under.
then tilled 3 times to chop stuff up.
30 minutes and 6$ seed wasted.
oh well, we experiment with stuff a lot.
I got a pumpkin patch that cost 2$ that is now using space of 20x50ft.
same with butternut squash.
my market more 76 cukes took off, taken 10 so far and got another 45 blooms showing. tasty.
picking another few lbs of carrots ( 35 ft) this week.
second crop of peas planted last week and coming up, 4 45ft rows.
60 ft of sweet corn will be ready soon.
all for 38$ of seed. thats average of what we spend each spring.
fun to play around and test stuff.

I do something similar with a ziptie.

Good idea, currently I just shove them up between the fender and the fuel tank.

Well it kind of worked. I needed a stand for my landscape rake so I bought a bolt on trailer jack stand. It is a little too long to fold up completely, but it does stay put when it's in the up position. It sure makes hooking it up easier because I can move the rake around, up and down with ease.

good idea, need to do similar to my 7ft grader

edit: so been thinking on this for few minutes and I realize I am an idiot.
I cut some good lumber up to make a stand I have to CARRY around.
and yet....I got both a swing away jack and a 3bolt straight trailer jack sitting in my shed.
damn...hey live and learn, makes life interesting.

what I'll probably do is use the non-swivel 3bolt jack set in the buttress corner as that will be easier to use as well as give me a crapload more up/down adjust for the multiple tractors (massey GC, massey non-gc, TYM brand,etc) this blade may be used with
