Default Another Motorgrader

I have been wanting to build a motor grader for a few years and just never seemed to get started on it. Looking at Frank's finally got me interested again and I have started building one also. You will notice more than than a few similarities because I wanted mine to look like a miniature motor grader as well. No need to reinvent the wheel. One notable difference you can see is the addition of a powered front axle as well. The front axle is from a Ford 1110 4 wheel drive tractor and I plan to power it with a hydraulic motor with an electric clutch to disengage it. It's still early in the project but I am pretty deep into it already.

First, welcome to OCC....

Next, I straightened out your images.

You can use programs like Irfanview to fix your images.

Lastly, it is my understanding, that taking pictures with your phone, should be done horizontally.

Years ago (like 28) I built a rotisserie for car restorations. Came in handy for welding the underside of the goose neck.

Thanks. I’m mounting the hydraulic cylinders but I am not sure how all the control need to be. Not my strong suit.

Nice Rotisserie you have there.

That makes life a little easier when welding stuff like that

I'm in to follow your build.

I have a question on your plan to
get the front tires pulling the same speed as
the 2 rear hydro's.

Will you use some type of proportioning valve or
a flow control valve?

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
