Made this grading implement for the fast hitch

I made this grading implement for Blackie which has the fast hitch

It is made out of 3 used edges off my Jeep snow plow and a fast hitch spike I gave $30. for .
It works better than I had imagined actually it works better than the belly blade 8)

Ralph:

Would you consider putting this great idea down to paper with pics and narrative to share with our fellow Cubbers :?:

Seems real interesting.

I wonder how it would need to be modified to work on a standard or lo-boy without a fast hitch :?:

I would be happy to do it but I don't have access to a scanner to get it on my PC .
But i will see what I can do.


Thanks

Thanks a lot, I appreciate. I can scan it for you and then pop it into a Powerpoint presentation if you can send me the stuff. Snail mail is cool too!

Cheers

My son said he could use microsoft word and add the deminisions to the photo and a discription of materials. Then I can post it that way .
As to the question of using a varible of the unit on a standard cub I think it should be fairly easy. You would have to engineer a hinge assy. to bolt to the drawbar and could use a chain to lift with or if you want down pressure make a link out of angle or pipe to go from the rear lift arm down to the grader.
8) I used the implement today to backfill a trench today for an electric service the ditch was about 200 ft. long took about 15 minutes. :P
Since it was about 90 degrees here today and it would have taken 3+ hours with the old :roll: D-1 (Shovel) :roll: I opted to play with the Cub. :wink:

That would be excellent! Let me know when it is ready. I can host it on the server as well if that would be agreeable to you.

K, think I can probably figure that out. With a little tinkering it should be simple enough to construct.

It sure is rewarding when one can take his own design, build it and actually work with it. Well done.

I think you made a good choice. Cub on one hand, D1 shovel on the other - hhmmmmmm - real hard choice there :roll: :lol: Cub it is!

Glad you had an enjoyable day too :!:
