  • Here is an idea for weights...
  • I was just moving a very heavy chain from the back of the orange tractor to bring it in before it rains. Made me think it would be nice to have a spool to wind it up on. Then I thought it would be great to have the spool attach to the tractor.
    Then I thought it would be great if the spool was built around the rear axle trumpet and had a cover that snapped over it so you could store it on the tractor.
    Anyone ever seen anything like that??

  • 55 gal barrel welded to 3 pt hitch. Drain spigot on bottom. Fill when needed, drain when not. 55 x 8.35 = 459.25 Lbs.

  • A spool to hook it up on. How about one of these.

  • Then you could just add a 12v winch and come-along. The SAFETY concern pops into my mind for pulling methods. We've all seen too many tragic accidents from guys who tried to pull the wrong way...

  • You mean there is a proper and improper way to pull?

    Who would have thought LOL.

  • I thought this was your idea of a quick way to change hydrolic fluid.

  • Maybe a quick way to DRAIN the fluid... Don't think changing it would quite do it...

  • Then I thought you could make a spool that mounts right on the rim. Reverse to unwind forward to wind up.
