  1. Big job, yes it snow balled into more than I had planned
  2. Woo Hoo! It worked! Able to raise it and NOT hit the tire or drag on the ground when up in the air! Finally finished! Other than painting it once I know everything works the way I wanted it to. Hopefully in the next week or two I'll actually get to try them out. That is depending on just how much more rain we get this week. We were SO fortunate to get almost 3" of snow on April 30th and it was still around on May 1st. And well its VERY wet around here. Water laying everywhere. Not sure what the guys who already have
  3. After some picking of brains again on Red Power about if I designed the wheels correctly and if they could lift the unit okay.... I started making some more progress. Now how the heck am I going to attach these baskets to this frame? These mounts for finger harrows I have sitting on the wagon should work somehow!? Man they do look awfully bulky? Is this going to be a heavy enough arm? Lets think on that and make up the arm pivots instead... Better get a tongue on this and get it so I can move it around. I know I have to get it out
  4. Now we are starting to talk...something with beef to it and that won't crumble after the first round around the field. The snow has finally all melted away and you'd think spring was actually here! Nice to be able to open up the doors and work. Man that was one long winter to be stuck inside for. Started figuring out just how these harrows were going to attach to this beefy frame. It wasn't too hard to get together, once I had the depth I wanted to end up at figured out. Next job, tackle these baskets and make sure this will work. If not
  5. I've been wanting to get a set of baskets for a few years now to help out in spring to break up clumps and help level out the fields. Perhaps a bit too concerned about level fields compared to some guys - but I can't seem to bear seeing beans left in the fields in the fall because they have too many ridges in them. The perfect set up in my pea brain would be the harrows or buster bar in front of the baskets. "Lets look for something like that!" Needless to say, that was halted pretty quick considering a new set up was over $20,000 and well any used set up that was even worth looking at wer
  6. Always so cool to watch your tractors work Steve. I could grab a beer and watch you work all afternoon! lol Tiller is looking good, nice job mating it up. Really think you should do a "how to" post on that one!!
  7. Cultivated garden this afternoon in hopes of tilling it up in next week or two.
  8. Looks good! Sweet set up. I bet @Mr. Plow would like to be out there giving you a run for your money!
  9. Just wondering how are these to be installed and used properly on the harrows? Think there is supposed to be a safety chain running from them back to harrows or harrow arm near spring end in case spring breaks??
  10. I don't have enough 3x3 left. Used 2x2 1/4" wall. It lifted it! Finally. Thanks guys. Cylinder wings are bought and installed. Used 2" for them. Working on stops for wings now. Then will do some more work on wheels.
  11. Ok, have to see what I have left in the pile? May have to be one of 3" and one of 2"??
  12. Ok, understandable about J&M's method. I have some 2"x2" 1/4" wall square tubing here I could use. Your finger editing does fine. Put it as close to where the cylinder attaches to the wheel arm, near the pin. That would work. No worries on being busy, your work is WAY more important than helping with my problems. I appreciate everything you and the others have had to offer me. Big help!!
  13. @bitty @Gearclash @Mr. Plow So if I run a piece of square or round tubing with like a 3/16" or 1/4" wall across from wheel arm to wheel arm say about 2 - 4 inches up from where the axle runs through the arm for the wheel, that should "tie" it together? Then I can synchronize the cylinders as suggested? The thing that is making me scratch my head - how can J&M get theirs to lift without the connecting steel between the two sets of wheels? Other than they are WAY more talented than me and know what they are doing!!
  14. Anyone have a picture of suggested way of tieing wheels together? Would have to be pretty side framework again wouldn't it to stop from twisting?
  15. Need some more help. 🤦‍♂️ 3"x8" lift cylinders on wheels, one each. How so I synchronize them to lift at the same time vs o e side then the other? Right now the two lines run to a Tee in middle of tongue before going to tractor. Also can I install a resistor in the lines to slow stuff down? Have tractor set as slow as possible and it lifts faster than I'd like. @Gearclash @bitty Others???
  16. Ok, will see how hoses react as I work at getting final fit.
  17. Got it to work thanks. Just need to replace mocked up design with something permanent. Thanks @Gearclash
  18. So cylinders I have can pull that wing at that low of angle? That would be awesome! Will give it a try! Thanks
  19. Was just doing test run on front beam before adding in a cross member to centre assembly front to back so it will raise evenly with same amount of weight front and back. Cylinders are 2"x8" with1-1/8" rod
