Most useful uncommon implement

Recommended Posts

My name is Paul and I am a WH addict..  I have a problem.  I have more tractors than I have needed implements for.  I do not swap implements anymore each implement has its own prime mover.  So I need some new different implements.  So the question what is the most useful non-common (mower deck, snow plow blower) implement that you have.  i may need one like it!!  (Note my wife's suggestion that I get rid of some excess tractors is a non starter.)

Guess it's also a matter of what WH it should fit, but here are a few to consider :-)

 

Hydraulic tip trailer?

 

Power rake grader?

 

Backhoe?

 

Boxblade?

 

Spike Harrow?

Front mount generator...

 

Winch - front, rear or what the heck - both...

 

Ball hitch - front and back - for moving trailer(s) around

 

Cup holder - for when you just want to drive one around on a summer day...

These days, not an implement, but a good sized umbrella seems to be necessary. :ROTF:

Not really an implement, but the front permanently mounted ball hitch is probably the best thing I've bought for my tractor in the past few years. With two boats, a sailboat, and a 5x10 trailer I'm constantly moving them around. I have a cervical vertebrae issue with my neck, nothing bad but turning my head far enough around when backing up trailers can be painfully. The front hitch works great, much easier to put a trailer where you want it. I put a convert-a-ball on it, makes changing ball size a matter of seconds. The older you get, the more you have to work smarter not harder.

This is where @Ed Kennell throws up his pic of his sun canopy with the fringe balls! Talk about uncommon! :)

OK Jim, but don't forget the mid mount disc, the heated cab, and the infamous  "Mad Max " front mounted tiller.   :woohoo:

Although I don't really use it, it is perhaps my most unusual implement. It's my planter, complete with all the seed plates,fertilizer hopper and row marker. I haven't seen another one that is as complete as this. I don't even have a garden!!! Next I need the mid mount 540 rpm PTO 66 that I have absolutely zero use for!!! It's just a cool rare piece.

Lots of cool suggestions here.

Paul I'm glad to see you're finally facing up to your addiction.

Can't believe your wife said something about getting rid of Tractors though....

Clearly is HER that has an issue.

Some things to consider thank you all.  My soil is mostly rocks bound together with clay.  i have a mold board plow for a WH but never used it.  My 40hp Case DC 3 works to pull a two bottom through it.  The disk i have for it bounces along on the rocks even with 200 lbs of added weight.  I have a rototiller on a 12hp 8 speed and it works but it is painful watching it bounce up and down on the rocks and takes many passes.  The garden I have made is it and there will be no more sod busting.:P

 

I have an FEL on the D200 she also has a 3pt York Rake and a 3pt 60" finish mower (which I do not use very much at all)

753 has a sickle bar

C175-8 has a sweepster

C120-8 rototiller

C141-8 Front mount mower

C120-8 Mid mount blade

310-8 has a receiver hitch and front trailer ball  She also handles lawn sweeper and plugger (but that doesn't do much with all my rocks)

C175-8 has Cyclone rake

Charger /Electros (3) 2 snow plows and one Blower

418A Mower

Charger 12 Mower ( loaned to my neighbor)

 

Looking for work

C-175-8

Charger 10

Commando 8

 

 

I have a tub trailer but do not use it much as i do not want to beat it up. 

I have a trailer my Father and I built over 50 years ago.  (Originally towed behind a PorterCable MK26)  Been modified and now is with my L107.

I have a generator for the house.

 

 

 Thinking some kind of dump wagon may be the next project

 

and a cup holder!!!:D

That's what I'm working on now. Trying to find the time to put the vertical stand on it so I can mount the winch so that it will become cable winch lift powered instead of people lift powered.

I was thinking about an electric linear actuator.  Not as fast as hydraulics but easier to hook up
