jacobsen homelite homemade woodsplitter
This is a 1972 jacobsen homelite lawn mower that we made into a
woodsplitter. We took the electronic clutch of the front pto that would
usually run the mower deck. we then connected a hy draulic pump ( 16 gpm)
and ran the hydraulic lines to the resoivor ( propane tank) then we
connected the rest to our 3 point hitch woodsplitter we already had.

If there is enough interest in how I made this attachment and what I hade
to overcome during the build .I may make up a set of how to video's and

Ariens Tractor Hitch Cat. 0 3 pt. home made rear hitch
I made this hitch from some heavy duty scrap angle iron. My son welded it
up. The entire project took about three hours. The hardest part was
cutting the thick anhle iron. Ariens 1976 16 HP hydrostatic tractor.
Ariens S 16 HP with a powerful Kohler cast iron 16hp gas engine.
Hydrostatic drive, no gears to shift, it has a mid, front and rear pto with
a class zero 3 point hitch. The rear PTO is shaft, gear driven. It weighs
about 900 pounds. It comes with wheel weights, turf tires on front and
rear, a 48 inch shaft drive mower deck, 3 foot 3 point hitch rototiller,
snow/dirt blade and chains. The snow blade and chains were never used. I
have the original packing slip and shipping sticker. This machine is a rare
find. It was stored in a barn for over 15 years. Other then old gas in the
tank, it started right -up. There is zero no smoke, I think the engine has
under 500 hrs on it. Ariens was the in leader in rototiller technology.
This tractor will out live you. I re-painted the rototller, but the rest of
the tractor just has some minor surface rust. I replaced the battery and
ALL the belts, new hydro filter and oil. I repacked all the grease for the
gear boxes on shaft drives for the rototiller and mower deck. Lights are
also new, back light are original. This nice part about the tractor is it
was never worked on, all the wires and nuts and bolts are original. The
hydraulic control lever has Lift, Down, Hold and Float!
