I don't have it put to gather quite right yet. Rick has seen the pictures and I will get it right in the morning. All the bolts are only hand tight now so no problem.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I'm just going to have to chime in here too. My parts are in, and I'm waiting for enough time to primer and paint them. I have to say the welds are better than I've seen in a long, long time. Very professional, and very clean. Sure wish I could do that well! Anyway, I hope to have mine up and running before too much longer. Looking forward to not having to dismount my mower in exchange for a box blade, one row cultivator, scrape blade, dead pole cat remover, dried possum scooper, etc. 8) :D Plus, this will have independant hydraulics. Can you say "drool". I know I am!

Absolute beauty. I like all the hooks and bends to get around every thing that already existed.

Just very, VERY cooool.

Rick, are you planning on offering these on an order by order side biz?

I think you should. I might be interested. It make perfect since for me because my main work tractor is a small Kubota, all the 3pt stuff for it would be the right size for the cub :D
