i took one of those T fence posts strongest thing for the size, i hooked it on the rear of my truck as soon as i finished building it, lifted the front tires of the tractor off the ground till the winch quit then i jumped on my half ass front bumper to try to break something so i can improve it and she held up.
i thought the same thing when i made it but its been fine and i dont even know how many times ive used it for anything and everything around my house

Looks like a very useful tractor! That rear frame should be pretty strong... I made a mini boom-pole out of old pipe & it hasn't bent a bit.
