What brand of blade did you get? And with the electric sleeve hitch do you get enough downforce on the boxscraper to eliminate using the cinder block for weight? Looks ready for work...nice job !:thThumbsU

Looking good. I finally got to see a Dixon at the local Husky dealer a couple weeks back. Beautiful machine. The dealer didn't seem thrilled when I told him Homer had been selling them online since spring. For what it's worth, the last time I checked the Dixon was off Homers site. Just the bagger and Brinly attachments come up in a search.

Beautiful pix of your Buckeye Dixon, complete with the perfect child model...Congrats; tractor couldn't look much better than that, with your "farm and ranch" modifications (new ag tires, power sleeve lift, front and rear end tools....minus the deck -- ready to role/roll in the pumpkin patch, hay barn, tool shed, back 40 lanes hauling in the produce...).
`
AnyONE with a 2" square receiver on the back of ANY BRAND of similar garden tractor; you could also add a pickup truck cargo carrier running on a 2" square tube receiver; pinned onto the standard Dixon sleeve lift or power sleeve option; or any 2" bolt-on receiver SAFELY attached to the tractor FRAME (and not just the tinny sheet metal rear end)...

For about $90-170 online; you could buy a nice CarryAll about 4 or 5 feet wide X about 2deep; and boom, haul pumpkins, produce baskets, hay bales, tools, firewood, landscaping items; (and/or also throw on some sand bags for use as a front-end (loader/bucket/snow-blower-blade) counter-weight.

This example 500 lbs. capacity unit being sold to truck/SUV... owners for about $80-90; maybe $10 extra for fold-up option; should work seamlessly behind a garden tractor also:

This one is rated for 600 lbs. capacity; about $170 on eBay....

Cheaper (and cheaper-built) CarryAlls are found on Harbor Freight, and Sears, etc. Google "Cargo Carrier."
