Anyone know of any web sites featureing unusual, but useful, home-made 3pt. implements?

I've got a bunch of junk iron, and I need some ideas for winter projects.

You could build a wire roller from old shredder or combine parts. A 3 point carry all platform for hauling whatever like firewood or trash barrels or mount a tank on it for sprayer too. What about a log splitter? Those sell good.

Thanks fellas, you have given me some things to think about.

I've already got a 3pt blade, 3pt culivater, 3pt bale spear, 3pt post hole auger, and etc., but I'm always looking for more ideas. Some of the links and pictures you've shared have given me more fresh ideas.

Thanks again,

Ron: If you'd like some photo ideas, send me an e mail. I know I have scanned photos of the cultivators both rear and center mount, snowblade and the 1/2 1 point fast hitch John Deere rotary hoe.

Another interesting fabrication I did back in my farming day was a quick attach, 3 point and drawbar attachment for loader end of skid steer. Skid steer had an extra hydraulic remote. It proved to be a great device for manuvering equipment into tight spots. I stored equipment in 2 old barns, and skid steer would put 20% more in there than tractor. It would even handle 5x16 semi-mount plow. I remember once having to change blades on a 20' tandem disk. Hooked it to skid steer to hold it and the hydraulic control. Tractors were all busy at the time. We did have a bit of fun with a city fella salesman, trying to convince him we regularly pulled the disk with the skid steer. Not completely sure what he believed when he left.

Ron: I've fabricated three rear hitch cultivators using modern day S-tines bought at a farm store and fabricated the frame work. Mine are 1 point fast hitch for my Farmalls 130 and 140, but could just as easily made them 3 point. One is a field type cultivator and the other two are row crop. I also built a bed shaper for shaping up beds 4' wide between tractor tires. I built a front snow blade, 6' angle for my Farmall 130. I've completely modified my center mount cultivators to use S-tine ground working tools. What I like about these S-tines is the cost of new ones should you break one. S-tine complete with point is under $10., some of those IH tools were in the $50. range and not as tough as S-tines.

I also done some conversions of 3 point implements to 1 point for use with my tractors. I probably have one of the few 1 point fast hitch, John Deere 247 2 row corn planters. Bought this corn planter, had a larger tractor with 3 point and decided why tie up larger tractor if 130 would do the chore. First attempt was 3 point for 130, didn't work well. Second attempt was 1 point fast hitch fork for corn planter. It worked well as 130 depth control on planter was excellent.

I built a 1 point sprayer from a 3 point, quite easy, actually.

I guess my most interesting chalange came in 1992. I had always wanted a 6' or 7' rotary hoe for my Farmall 130. I had explored fabricating a 7' 1 point fast hitch 4"x4" tool bar then buying new tooling from IH or Deere. At parts counter I got to $2,500. and walked away. Looked at cutting down an old rotary hoe, but old rotary hoes are little more than scrap iron, beat to crap. Then one day I saw a new John Deere model 400 15'rotary hoe, dealer had it priced at $2,600. to clear at end of season. I knew the Deere hoe was built on a 4"x4" tool bar with 2 - 3.5' sections and 2 - 4' sections. I called a friend with 40 hp Deere with 3 point who was looking for an 8' hoe. We called the Deere dealer and made the deal. Two days later we went to dealers armed with a chop saw, wrenches and 2 pickups. We paid him for the hoe, but when we asked him for an extension cord and power to run chop saw, he objected. He said, "You two are not going to cut a new machine in two pieces on my lot. If a Deere rep walked in, I'd be toast, besides it doesn't look good for bussiness. I will deliver the complete hoe to one or the other of you and what you do after that is your business". I said jokeingly, "Carson do you mean to tell me you've never sold a machine to joint ownership before, Just think of the publicity if two guys cut a new baler in half. You should look at this from a politicians point of view, publicity in the main objective, works for them whether good or bad." Any how he delivered the hoe, we cut the tool bar at the 7-8 foot mark, my friend took the 8' section complete with 3 point attachments. We fabricated a 1 point for the 7' section and my tractor. We both have been very happy with our rotary hoes. Can't seem to get Carson in the 1/2 machine mode though.LOL

Old Carson is quite the cat, huh? We don't deal too much with him as we've only got a couple Deere pieces, but the service has always been pretty good there. I've got no complaints. Another dealer once told me the only man that ever made money selling tractors around here was Carson.... and he's got all the green stuff in this half of the province now. Must be more money in selling whole pieces than halves :<)

Rod: You have the luxury of being able to call Carson, old. He's actually somewhere between 5 and 10 years younger than I. I can remember the year he, his brother Lee and their father Earl opened that Deere dealership. The boys seemed like young lads to me. Earl and Lee had operated a gas station and automotive repair at the Onslo sight. Carson had worked for Deere in Ontario, with Deere themselves not a dealer, that is where he learned the trade. When the Truro dealership became available Carson's boss at Deere Canada made him aware of it. He's never looked back.

When you think about it Carson clocks a lot of miles to service that area. Around here there are 4 different Deere dealers within 30 miles of me. Near as I can see they do a lot of invading each others territory. But then there are probably 4 CaseIH and 4 New Holland in that same geographic area. I'll say one thing, it keeps their pensils sharp.

I've made several implements after "borrowing" and modifying plans I created after observing factory-made implements -- a rear scoop, a boom pole, a 6-foot rear blade, maybe others I'm forgetting, as well as a drawbar anti-turn device, stabilizer bars, equalizer chains, etc. Just look at implements at places like TSC. Most are pretty simple to duplicate or improve on. I think (but not sure any more) you may find my boom-pole plans by doing a Google search for "marshel rossow." Have fun.

Over the years I have made/remade a good number of things for the 3 point systems. I've made a boom pole, remade a pull type disc to be 3 point and a few other things. All it takes is a good welder and imaganation

Hey Ronin,just think about what kind of equipment you would like to have that is too expensive or you like but needs modification and make it. I have a homemade aerator 7 foot long and can add water to make it heavy. I have also seen a lot of homemade smoothing attachments.
