I'm sure most of you have see these things by now.This particular kit uses a John Deere garden tractor transaxle.

This is the 3rd in a series of 3 videos. The 1st two are just assembling it. I only posted this one because it is all done.

I guess I'm just getting old cause these things just don't impress me much.
However, This is the nicest kit that I've seen for building one of these rockets.
For me, the project that he was pulling into the shop looks very interesting.

Interesting, I can see that thing being very easy to flip. I feel the same way as Ray... I'd rather have the beast he was towing!

Neat link Maynard! Thanks.

As far as the hydro goes... "Exceeds manufacturers design specifications" comes to mind.

I must be old too Ray, but in their type of business, this actually could make some sense. Great advertisement for their capabilities. Yep, when I seen the old dozer, THEN they had my attention!

As a bar stool, in a busy bar, it would serve a purpose. You'd get served first.

And then get busted.:bigrofl:

Yep one of those toys someone just had to build, thanks for posting.
I was thinking you would not even have to get up to go into the bathroom, not to mention run the other guys over on the way there.

I realize this would be a little far fetched ... but under the right circumstances, a guy could get arrested for drunk driving while still on his bar stool !!!

I saw that when it aired on TV and thought OMG what were they thinking. Just shows that if someone thinks of something, someone will build it. I can't help but wonder just how fast someone has gone on one of those.

It's alright, but where do you hook up the mower deck or plow? Seems like a lot of money, time, and effort put into something that is basically useless. Now if you could cut grass with it, that would be a different story. Hey, I got an idea. Why not put that motor in the crawler project? Now that would impress me!

Kind of reminds me of something that Casey would build. LOL

That appears to be a little underpowered. Perhaps they should have used the 502 out of a Boss Hoss!
