What do you guys think? Doesn't leak. East to use. Handle is basically flush against tractor when closed. Yeah, it looks funny and maybe a simple petcock would have worked too, but so does this haha

should work, and since it is above the axle, getting broken off should not be a problem.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Verify the axle can't hit it when pivoted to the limit. I recall there not being a lot of extra room there.

I thought about that, but I believe I'll be safe. I can't imagine putting my tractor in a place where it it will pivot that far up. I will verify tho.
