I'm building a rear blade for my H

I've been wanting to put my 48 H to work but with no 3 point it is nearly worthless ( I did say NEARLY!!! not totally worthless ). In this part of the country old drawbar impliments don't seem to exist so if you want something you just have to create it your self. I really need a rear blade to move some dirt around with.
So I set out to figure out how to build one that would work with my liftall belly pump hydraulics and some way to mount it off my drawbar.
I went shopping at my local scrap metal dealer and found some interesting items:
A really heavy duty snow plow or dozer blade 7 feet wide with 2 1.5" x 8" stroke cylinders that angled the blade.
I also found a 3" x 24" stroke cylinder that looked real good, no signs of seal leaking and the shaft isn't rusty.
I'm really not sure just what a snow plow blade was doing around these parts. I live in Tucson, Arizona and we never see more than a light dusting of snow VERY rarely. I bought these items and paid partially with some scrap electric motors that had been rolling around the back of my truck for a week or so.
I was just glad to get them out of my truck.
when I got the blade and cylinders home I set the blade behind the tractor to figger out how to make this come together.
I figured what else I needed and headed back to the scrap yard to get more angle iron etc.
Two days later I have a 3 point hitch of sorts. and with a couple more welds in the morning I will find out if this thing works.
The most expensive part was the 8 foot long hydraulic hose.
I didn't think those 1 1/2" cylinders would do me much good for lifting implements so I put the 3" cylinder to use for lifting. Now if my Liftall just works!!!

Zonie: Hey..great to read of someone not afraid to try making it himself. Too many now can't do it unless they can bring it home from the store.
Best of luck 2 you down there in AZ. ralph

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
