PVD, Physical Vapor Deposition.
Used for years now on vehicles to apply chrome like coating to plastics used in headlamp reflectors and front grill trim and on aluminum wheels.
Reported to be much more friendly to the environment than the old chrome plate process.
That is correct. You know why I thought PCD. I have been doing some work with that and I knew it wasn't the same but kept having a mind block.

Got KBOH's front tie downs bolted on today . I could not get them mounted in the holes where the pic I saw showed them mounted as I would have preferred . Even with the 1/4" spacers , there was interference from the plastic cowl that would not let the holes line up . So I instead used the spacers and installed them in the same holes as the brush guard . They should still accomplish the task of tying down the tractor . 🚜

I may need to pull them off and paint them green since they aren't on the black frame as intended . :unsure:
Pulled them and painted them green . Since I don't get (have) to play in the snow , this is about all I need to do with my tractor . 🚜

Had our first snow. Used the bucket to clear. And heavy hitch blade to scrape and clear the sidewalk. It’s the first winter with this machine. Use the bucket to build a small sled hill for my daughter. So that was fun.

Finally got our first snow of the year. Was supposed to get 4 to 6 but only got 2. That's plenty for me. Spring can come now 😆

Curious as to the one random weight pointing the other way.:unsure:

also, how you think that plow would do as a rear blade in dirt (in a pinch)? Thinking of selling my rear blade and getting one of those instead; like the idea of keeping my HH loaded up while also having a blade. Less fiddling with the 3ph hardware. Would further suplement with box blade for grading purposes.

Put on the Pat's !
768863

Nice setup. Can't wait to try these out. Installation was simple and self explanatory. (I did RT*M)
Came with two sets of shims used to make the the hooks parallel with the arms. The thicker 3/8" were the right ones.
I set the distance between the hooks to 27" as that's kinda between the dimensions of my implements.

I might look for some shorter bolts, and cut the u-bolts a little shorter.
768867

I don't keep the arms on during blower season... they sure were a lot lighter before I put these on!
Nice and heavy duty. I'm guessing I'll be real happy :)

I put a set of Pat’s on last spring and they make swapping implements so much easier. Hopefully you’ll enjoy yours too.

The one random weight pointing the other was is because it would hit the tool box when the 3 point was raised up all the way. I usually have them all facing rearward.

as far as the blade goes- not sure yet. First use. Certainly is handy. Not sure how it would work to grade.

Been doing all kinds of things in this holiday stretch.

768870


Spread 60 tons of rock, the box blade exceeded expectations.

768871


Grapple finally arrived. Have not played with it much yet but pleased thus far.

768872


768873


Utilized same method as others to make my push blower more mobile. Might do some tweaking yet on mounting of drawbar.

768874


Toothbar came in and got that mounted.

768875


Edging / cleaning beds for mulch

I typically find a use for this thing on a daily basis.

6 hours on my little one now. I am really impressed on what a grapple can do for you. My recommendation would be for anybody getting a new tractor would be to get the 3rd function installed.
Nice setup...
Is that a Deere (Frontier) grapple?
Thanks!

I bought that setup a few months ago and still haven't put it on. Hadn't needed any three point implements. Does your stock upper link extend enough to make up the difference?

I'm guessing it will be for the stuff I do, if not, I'll source a longer top-link for "regular" work from TSC or the like.
I do have a hydraulic top link as well, that I know is long enough.

I'm a little worried about the extra length further back as it will lighten the front end a bit more when I'm brush hoggin'.
I usually just use the loader for front weight, but even thats a little light... We'll see :)

Installed the new Carlisle Versa Turf Radials. Here is how i would compare them to the R4's which came off the tractor.

Description / Carlisle VT Radials / OEM R4's
Snow Removal traction / A+ / C
Ride Quality / A++ / C
Steering while Plowing / A / D
Consistent Traction / A+ / C
Handling / A++ / C
Appearance / AA+ / B
Tread Clearing / AAA / D
Squatting w/Load / A / B
Sex Appeal / N/R * / N/R*

* Hey, wanted to see if you are still reading.......Gentlemen don't kiss and tell or anything else and tell, except playing with their tractor.

Now the conditions I plowed in were tough, the snow was very wet and heavy and the surface had some ice and a lot of moisture. I didn't notice any tire spin or traction loss. I will put them to the test and continue to report on them.

My snow plowing was with my 87" wide blade, rubber plow edge, plow top flap and 650 pounds of rear ballast on the 3ph. Your results may very based upon your machine set up.

I am looking forward to various traction challenges when plowing snow. I am very encouraged this tire is going to be significantly better than the R4's were for snow plowing.

romchr, I first mounted my tiedowns where you have them. I felt it was too close and conflicted with the loader stand.

Take a look at the last post Mackford 13 posted of his tractor after cleaning the drive. The two bolts that show up prominently in that photo is where I moved mine to. I just could not see enough in your photo if you had that option.

I tried mounting them on the two bolts that mount the mower bracket , they would not clear the plastic cowling . You can't see them but there are 1/4" spacers behind the tie down which created enough space to use tie down hooks . 🚜

I finally did something with my tractor since Thanksgiving weekend!
Dug this rock out of a 25 foot excavation at a jobsite I’m digging.
768965
I try to find cool rocks and bring them home when I can. With the new house I’m doing green rocks. Jadeite
Brought it home in the back of my pickup, plucked it out with the forks, cleaned it up and put it in the front planter. Disregard the weeds. It’s a ground cover experiment gone wrong and will be addressed in the spring
