It looks to me like he used an adjustable link on the bottom so that it can pivot, and the top is probably mounted using a 3pt hitch "swivel eye". The design appears similar to what the CADTRAC uses.Hydriv said:I could be wrong but I don't see any provision for the front and rear to pivot independently. This appears to be a rigid design and that would be OK if you put the rear axle on a center pivot. But then you would have to raise the fenders to make room for the wheel swing.
I also see the lack of an oil cooler. Would it be harsh of me to say that this is a poorly thought out design? I don't know how he arrived at the asking price but I guess he has to start somewhere.
Tom, that is very true. Using a U-joint like mine where everything is contained within the frame definitely allows for more ground clearance.Hydriv said:Thanks Scott...for pointing that out.
I still think that the design is not well thought out. If you traverse hilly terrain, all that junk hanging below the frame is going leave you hung up on a mound of dirt. Going with a U-joint as high up as you can get it, would have left a nice clear area in middle of the tractor.
