have been playing with this hog..

its actually a L366 Kubota.

ive got the cracks in the deck welded up & added some angle iron over top of them so that its not an issue going forward.

adjusted the 3 point tree so that it hooks up easy on my tractor & QH. got the unit all leveled up when its hooked up now.

rebuilt the tailwheel mount cause it was trashed.

gearbox was still full.

blades are pretty rusty, but gonna run them & see if this is a good unit or not before buying more blades.

it had been sitting a long time.

THEN if its solid? will taker her outside & get some of the rust off of her & do some rust bond & give it a coat of paint. The painting might wait till fall/winter. we'll see.

This unit is HEAVY. 2" square tube tree, 2" square tube frame down the middle & 1/4" channel as the cross member with the gear box.

The deck metal is pretty thin, looks to be 1/8" stuff, but if i keep the unit? will just plate over it as needed.

weight isnt really an issue for me on the CK4010.

will add pix later.

more straightening of metal & cleaning of rust...

the blades were shot & bent on top of being round on the ends.

Tractor supply had a set on the shelf, so its got new blades now. gear box ran nice & smooth.

the stump jumper isnt in great shape, but its not at the have to replace point either, so will run it for this year & see if the unit is a keeper.

got the "rust stop" on it all over & will start priming it & painting it next. im not gonna sand blast or grind it down. the deck metal is just too thin on this thing.

the frame is super heavy duty stuff, but the deck metal appears to just be 1/8" stuff.

not gonna be a factory original paint job, but it will look decent when im done.

got the new blades on & locked in. man oh man that is some big iron flinging around under there.

super smooth at PTO speed!

been torrential downpouring here the last couple days, so will focus on the paint job while trying to get it to dry up..... then its live test time!

will post pix soon as its painted & deflectors on the front.
