That looks awesome! Color me a bit jealous! What rear tires are those?
Thanks. Polaris 24x10.5-12 ATV tires I bought off FB Marketplace. They are exactly like the Ocelot ATV tires I put on my XT3 from ChapMoto.
Here's a video after I got the curl cylinder mounted.

Nice work. Could you post a pic showing how you attached to the cub frame ?
I built a hitch out of 8" channel that has the same frame mounting as the factory hitch.

Added a couple of videos after getting my wheelweights mounted. First one I pushed a 30ft tree down into one of my hollers like it was nothing. The rock pile has been at my house since I moved in here 20yrs ago and consists of grapefruit sized rocks and was well compressed.

I had a little trouble due to running into a hole right in front of the pile which pushed my bucket angle upward. I may add some fiberglass rods to the bucket edges so I can better see the angle of attack.
