my daughter wanted to have a harvest party with a hayride for all the grandkids/cousins on both sides of the family . my trailer is a single axle , 12' trailer i had made a little beefier . i built this to take the weight off of the tractor drawbar . it was a quickie build , but works better than i thought it would . the tow sidebars hookup with quick links if i have to reverse , which has been a rare thing . i can trailer the cub to parades , and use the trailer as a parade float .coppersmythe.......................PS: always know your route , cub brakes are lacking , the steepest hills in south louisiana are ant hills . PPS: i hooked it up to the high and wide , the reason its at an angle . on a standard cub it sits level

Ricky, would it be ok if I built something like your boom lift? That looks like the berrys there.

I like it too. I had the idea a while back of putting a hydraulic cylinder on a boom lift much like a shop engine hoist. Give it a little extra "oomph".

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.

I found this old heavy metal rack out in the bushes behind the barn the other day and dragged it out this afternoon with the Cub. I'm seeing at least a frame for a dirt scoop in there. (The end pieces are about a half inch thick).
