    WOW! Fresh from paint. Looking good T-man. Looks like you didn't spare the metal either, nice and heavy duty. So what kind of things will you use it for?

    I know my 3 point lifts in a arc which is more noticable at the top of lift. I have been thinking about doing something like this so would be curious how high yours is when in the low positiion and then how high when its all the way. The actual 3 point cant raise very high but hoping the arc will help out.

    So if you get a chance, could you measure yours?

    Pressure Washing Underside of Mower Decks

    My old 655 had a 50" belly mower. I was always washing the underside. I would raise the deck to clear a fountain type lawn sprinkler, center over the sprinkler head, turn on the water, start the deck and slowly move back and forth over the sprinkler. It worked pretty good. However, it seemed I was replacing the spindles more often than I should. After all, this was a John Deere. I spoke with my local JD mechanic and he advised to try and not direct water into the base of those spindles. He also told me not to spray water on top of the deck as the water likes to find it's way into the bearings there too. After I stopped using water on my mower deck the spindle replacement extended into years. I see the dealer's yard boy using their steam cleaner all the time on equipement. Many mower decks come with those hose hook ups. I just got my new 1026R today with FEL and MMM. I plan to use 120 PSI air to keep the dirt and rocks off most of the tractor. I know sometimes we just have to get the hose out. I thought I'd just throw that out for consideration. Nice boom

    Thank you. Wouldnt have guessed it to be that much lift. That's enspiring.

    It would be harder to mount but wondering about the advantages of building one that starts 24 to 36" off the ground.


    One more question

    How long is your arm?

    Thanks again.

    Beautiful work Tractorman....

    Funny how sharing a creative work like this can get others creative juices flowing. While I have never considered the need to lift my deck for cleaning, the possibile uses of what you created (or something similar) are endless.

    Thank you
