I finished my trailer project!!

Finally I made some real, tangible progress on something I've been working on. Check my P.J. for the proof. I'm really likin' the way it came out. Even if it probably is waayy too heavily built for what it needs to be. Maybe I need a different role model than Tim Taylor.....




In a while, Chet.

Of course... my tractor does have a sheepskin seat cover.
That's why I have two padlocks and all the racking is screwed together by 3/8" carriage bolts!

HEY Rob...That's the tractor you use for crowd control in the parking lot of the jerry springer show, isn't it?

I like the RV roof vent that doubles as a shaker hood scoop. Nice touch.

We're going to need a forum for mowing machines now.

Later, mikey

Wow! If I put something like that on my tractor, I'd never be able to turn it around. I gotta ask.... Why do you need that much weight up front??


In a while, Chet.

Right now I have a small yard & the micro tractor saves my back a lot.

Nice job on the trailer, but that mower still needs to be tied down. I would not trust that wood to hold up in the event of a panic stop or traffic accident.
