Fantastic job. Can't wait to see the stand. How did you keep from cooking the hydraulic lines?

I remember removing the wing every spring and reinstalling every fall on a Cat 140. Not the funnest of jobs. Lining up the bolts to undercarriage was a real pain, just because of the angles and the mast doesn't hang straight from whatever is lifting it.
Nice modification and very well executed.

Track burner. Explains the nice straight cuts on the plate,

A very nicely executed project, by the way. I love to follow along and see what other people are doing...

In the pics where you are cutting it off the grader, is the flat piece of plate with a U piece welded to it a straight edge for cutting?
