Here’s the latest creation as spring is around the corner. It’s not painted yet, as I’ll wait for the weather to warm up so I can bake the paint in the oven and open the windows when I do so! This series of photos gives you an idea of the materials that went into this before primer/paint covers it up.

I had spare vibra shanks from an other project a few years back, so I used some of them up on this one, including a spare hydraulic cylinder. This was a complex project with 584 individual parts. The adjustable front section (up/down) where the vibra shanks hang works using the lever. The mulcher is 2 individual gangs that took a LOT of time to re-engineer. The harrow hanging off the chains took more time and effort than I thought as if had to level and move as close to the real one as I could. The levelling board wasn’t that bad and was about the easiest of this piece to build!!.

Enjoy the pictures (from finished product backwards) and when it’s all painted up with decals and hydraulic hoses affixed, I’ll post more then – in a few months time.

Now off to figure out the 365 vibra tine cultivator as I try to build a jig to make the tines, while still being able to mount them……!!!!

One more thing - you'll note that the screws/bolts are still long. That's because I don;t cut them down to size until final assembly after painting as they're easier to remove when their longer for ay final touches or adjustments!
