I'm getting ready to build my Carry All. I want to build just one and use it for either my 4310 or 4052R. I'm not sure how wide to make it . . . 5 feet would work for my 4310 and 6 feet would be just fine for my 4052R. So which width should I go with? Is there a width that you think would work for both tractors?
What about painting the Carry All? Most of the ones I've seen on You Tube and in posts on AT just have bare pressure treated wood. Any value in painting the Carry All JD Green, or black? I painted my Carry All frame JD Green . . . so my wife thought go green all the way, or black . . . any opinions I can mull over?
Finally, the wood used 5/4" pressure treated or 2" x length selected, or just pine 2 x length selected, if the pine boards are to be painted?
Hardware to be used . . . I'm leaning towards stainless steel carriage bolts, washers and nuts and not galvanized hardware . . . your thoughts? I'm thinking less chance of rust developing with SS hardware.
