    Sweet thanks for sharing. Is that a pro-slide I see. If yes, are you satisfied by it's performance?.

    Pretty cool. Did you make it yourself or have someone make it for you?

    How much money do you have into it? I'm going to be ordering a JRCO in the next couple days.

    If you get a chance, maybe take a few pics of it in action. And let us know how it works out for ya.

    I think you need diagonal bracing, so it doesn't bend the first time you hit a root or other obstacle.
    What are you going to use for tines on the bottom?

    That looks nice but I think you will need some additional bracing on it. Crawdad posted pictures of a leaf plow he made for his Scag. Show us some pictures of it in action.
