Now that is one cool "GoAnywhereMobile"

Thanks for sharing the pics, how was the steering? Did it fight you to turn?

it didnt steer to bad, i put most of the weight on the very back tires so it would put more weight to the front tires. it would pull/push alot of stuff.

That is certainly a way to solve the problem of traction on a garden tractor.
I like it.

I love those kind of projects. You went at it from an angle that most would have never thought of including myself. Now you've got me thinking. My Son sells snowmobiles.
