Besides your awesome frame stand and your excellent progress, I like the Adirondac chair (you must have made?) in the back ground.


Yes, I just finished the chair! Actually, a combination of Adirondac & Litchfield styles. The only lumber I bought was the 1x6 for the arms, the rest came from new mower crating from our local Husqvarna/Dixon dealer. A lot of good resawn 1x4's & 2x3's in those crates, free for the hauling! ~~ grnspot

That's going to be a nice addition to your collection. Do you have a specific task in mind for this machine?

Mostly shows & towing! I'll probably re-do my center blade to fit it. ~~ grnspot

Its coming together nicely. Cool chair and like everybody else said, I too like the frame stand. My question is, how do you get it down once its all together?

Looking good! You don't even have snow stuck to the tires! I can tell that tractor will be well kept! Is the rack compatible with all most its? Or just deers?

Nice Job!! I wish I could paint mine a cool color. But I am going original and that would be blue :confuse:

I bet it could take almost all GTs of that relative size then, well made. I bet it gets used a lot!

Put the finished footrests on today, they came from the MTD the engine came from;

Set the hood on to fit, it will be painted yellow after repairs;

Hope to get the front bumper made & painted this afternoon! ~~ Lowell

Lowell, that yellow is really sharp. You're making me want to start working on my project tractor again! Thanks for the pics.
