Re: Homemade Suburban mid mount grader blade
Tractor#2- I've always thought that you could get a more even grade between the axles than in front of/behind. I'm also building it for the cool factor, for more welding experience, using up scrap that I've amassed before we move this summer.
James- you bring up a good point about sticking in the up position. I'll have to ponder that one for a bit. Was there anything else that you would have changed given the chance? Eventually I want to add a couple of linear actuators for lift/downforce and blade angle. I'll still tilt the blade by hand I think... Unless...
Keith- Let's see how #0001 goes first.
I should have a few new pics tomorrow.
