Looks like it should work. Unfortunately I don't have answers for your questions...
Absolutely! I have it designed that way.My concern would be.. If you have to move your bumper out of the way(fold it down) can you do that with a implement on your tractor (snow blower) and keep those light attachment points on also?
Mike,Where is it going to mount on the tractor? Looks like it was designed to mount where the front quick hitch mounts. :dunno:
I'm a bit like Rob here, we need to see the front of the tractor, can you draw it with the bracket near the point where it will attach?Your drawings are off the charts, really nice:fing32:, but I have a hard time figuring out exactly how this will look or set on the tractor, I need a visual in my mind.
So I don't have a clue on wether it will work or not, buy I'm sure it will.
Can you draw it on the tractor.
I will say with my plow on and if you are pushing snow some of the light from the headlights is being blocked. I CAN still see but I don't think it ever hurts to have more light.I'm a little confused. You want to make a light bracket to clear the front mounted attachments? That implies you're using a front Quick-Hitch, and Deere already sells a high mount front light bracket for the front Quick-Hitch. Seems like you're re-inventing the wheel.
Or am I missing something?:dunno:
What can you put on the front of an X7xx without a quick hitch that would need a high mount light bracket?
Looks good Jerry!:fing32:Mike,
During the winter months it will be mounted on the Quick Hitch Attachment. In the summer time you can add a couple of shims (shown in detail "A") to mount to the chassie which should give it 12 months use.
MowerDude,Sorry to sound 'thick' here, please fill me in. What attachemnt that does not use a Quick-tach front hitch that is big enough to block the headlights?
I'm curious, because I just bought an X700 and I'm wondering what I'm missing out on?
Comeon guys, give me a break,I am having enough trouble without drawing the entire John Deere fleet!I'm a bit like Rob here, we need to see the front of the tractor, can you draw it with the bracket near the point where it will attach?
Mike,Can you open the hood with it in place? That should be a design requirement as well as whether it causes mechanical conflicts with any other popular option.
