I know you folks like looking at splitting stands, so here are a few pictures of the ones that I just finished building. They are similar to the ones that I have used for the last 16 years at the shop, but a bit heavier, and with more adjustment for height. They will work on any tractor that has side rails on them, but if you split a 666 or 686 you need to make some adapters to keep the engine attached to the rails.. I made those also but don't have a picture handy. Anyhoo, enjoy!

Thanks Darryn,

Ray- the uprights are 1" thick by 4" and the stabilizer bars are 2" by 1/2". I can get you the other dimensions tomorrow if you wish.

Mine have swivel casters , they are a problem .

I notice yours have straight casters .
To all the white people of America who honestly feel that the black people have been so mistreated and given such a bad deal in this country I can only suggest that you should move yourself and your family, if you have such, into one of their neighborhoods and do everything necessary to become a integral part of their society, make every effort to blend your lifestyle into theirs, go to their stores, churches, and social gathering places for your needed things in life. send your children to schools where their children are the majority of the enrollment, and where they mostly compose the faculty and administration, get a job where they are in the majority and hold the important management positions...and most importantly of all, go the many prisons where they are being, justly...and unjustly, incarcerated and visit them and see them trying to be rehabilitated, but obviously so suppressed in their efforts that rehabilitation is just impossible. Then, after you have really gotten to know these people...many, many, many of them, from all walks of their lives and societies, and seeing their obvious appreciation of life in America, come forward and make suggestions as to how we white people should go about changing our ideals and society to better accept and integrate these people into our lives so that in a reasonable amount time there will be no more distinctions or differences in how we whites and blacks view each other and the hoped for blending and melding of our races can be completed and we can love and appreciate one another as you must think God intended.

I cannot take credit for these words ,Wish i could

Nice stands. Watched the video and got sidetracked watching all the other videos of the IH engines and 86 series and such. Id say I would have to disagree some with the guy claiming the 86 series operator location made a better ride. :rolleyes:

Tommy,
Straight casters are great......unless you are replacing an engine, have limited space, or your front tires aren't exactly straight. I put swivel casters on mine about a year or so ago and I love it.....once in awhile it helps to have another person to help you out, but that's the only problem. If nobody else is there, I just have a 2x4 to block the opposite wheel.

Sparky....the wheels or "casters" don't swivel on their own, but remember they are on the thread, so they do turn wherever I need them to..works excellent.
