@Ed Kennell I think Ed has been holding out on all his engineering skills , he needs to bring step by step pictures to the Big Show and teach a class. FEL my main I wish I had. I did put an electric actuator on the rear of my 310-8 to operate the clevis hitch . If I have time before the show I will post pictures of my 416-8 "What the What" ( notice I cleaned that phase up a bit ) @JPWH needs to provide more details on that rear blade .

That is why I put this thread under this forum. My hope is it will grow like the "What's in your Mirror" posts so people can see all the cool mods that RedSquare folks have done over the years...I am already amazed what's posted in only a couple of days...

 

Keep them coming!!!

I realized that however, I thought it might be a good idea to devote a forum to modifications only and split up the current forum because of the wide interest in modifications. On my computer when a file gets really big I like to split it up into smaller files for better organization and to make it easier to find certain common groups of files and I believe that would work here too. :)

How did you mount the weights? 

The weight is 2x2 steel bars which span the frame rails. They're clamped on with some smaller flat bar and threaded rod

Could you add some details? Manufacturer (self-built?), close up picks of attachment method etc.?

So far the biggest Large Mouth I ever caught and it was let go right after that pic was taken. The plan was to meet her again someday but now the access to that lake is blocked off by the town. Quite a large fish for New England waters. Never actually weighed it but estimate about 10 lbs since it was as long as my arm.

No kid'n. huh.

Think it was around the same time the back hoe was built. '08

Home built using the PF Engineering plans. Made a few modifications to the plans as it was built and I don't have any pics of the mount to the tractor. That question comes up a lot and I have a basic drawing of what I did somewhere.

The build was done back in 08 and the thread for it was one of my first posts on Red Square. Unfortunately the forum has changed since then and many of the old threads were lost or portions of them went missing.

The front weight hanger when using rear mounted attachments (tiller, box blade, moldboard plow) , which I modified to fit the rear for snowblowing/plowing and my custom engraved wheel weight center caps, Jeff.

How was the embossing done?  Awesome!

And I love the backhoe!  Mine is much bigger but hard to get into some spots.

@DennisThornton, the embossing/engraving was done with a C.A.D. program then transferred to a C.N.C. milling machine where I used a center drill or carbide spade bit to actually do the recessed engraving, here's a picture of the D.R.O. on the mill I did for the wife and I, Jeff. @Lane Ranger that drawbar you made for the 953 looks like the old Farmall/ Allis Chalmers style from the 50s cool MOD...

How did you attach the end of that foot control rod setup there to the hand control? I can't quite make it out in the picture.... ?
