I'm not so sure I totally agree that it's homemade, but I'm certainly NO expert. Found a thread or 3 on these here on this site.Looks homemade to me. Somebody did a very nice job. I think a factory made would have more holes to adjust the angle. It should do a great job for you. The trick to getting a smooth surface will be to take light cuts. Good Luck, Rick
Not really sure how a pusher would be an issue with hydro lift? Maybe on the "float"This one pushes, not pulls? Think that might be an issue on one of those. There was a pulling one at the Portland show, for Only $250! Guess those aren't cheap? Took a picture I think, in Portland show pix.
Thank you!!!!!!!IMO it's factory, others here can tell you the various mfg's who offered them, they are simplistic in design that often leads to misgivings, I erroneously passed on one because opinion was it was home made, next one I came across I didn't make the same mistake, mine is on a LF as well, handy piece, cool to add to your collection.
