John, Deere actually makes a very good one. You could probably go back to your dealer & get the measurments from them. After I got my TC 29D I went to the Deere dealer & bought one, as NH does (or did not then) make one and I was not interested in making one. It holds +- 600 Lbs of concrete & does the job. Someday I'll get around to painting it blue.

John,get the biggest galvinized bushel basket you can find,put a cheap drawbar through it with 2/3 of it hanging behind the drawbar.Add a fixture from the drawbar through the bottom of the basket for the toplink. Stick a trailer hitch, connected to the drawbar, out the back of the basket. Add a 6-8 inch extension ( I used flower bed edging) to the opening of the basket and fill with chunks of cast iron,wire and Qiuck-crete with fiber. The concrete extension lets it set on it's own pedestal for easy hook-up,the weight is low for stability, the trailer hitch is available, and the weight is tight to the tractor. Just a suggestion.
