I figured it wouldn't see real work, but figured I would at least get you thinking lol.

How cool Ray! When you get it all painted up its going to be hard to tell what you added and what was original (as usual for you :smilewink: ) :thumbs:

Question though, do you think that will turn sharp enough to catch the tow arm from the rear mowers on the sides of the tires? Maybe add a limiter stop of some sort to keep them just shy of the tires?

That was my only question also Ray. Fantastic build again, you always do a great job.

Just like on any tractor, you have to pay attention to what your doing.
Most anything that is towed behind a tractor will catch on the rear wheels if you turn the tractor too sharp.

The reel mowers were originally a light green color.
Because these are an aftermarket accessory and not made by FMC, I've decided to keep them their factory color.
I need to wait for the weather to warm up some before I can clean and re-paint the mowers themselves but I did get the mounting brackets painted today.
I found a color that matches the paint that is on the mowers really well.
The name of the paint color is very fitting, it is Rust-Oleum #7731 Grass Green.

That is a very fitting color. Hope you get the temps to paint the mowers soon. That is going to look very good.

Our forcast is for high 40's starting tomorrow with a temprature of 57 on Sunday.
Those tempratures are good enough to get everything outside and hosed off.

Still waiting on some warmer weather so I can get these mowers and the engine degreased and cleaned up.
In the meantime, I mounted some of the brackets back on the tractor.
If nothing else, adding the mowers is going to make it a colorful tractor.
Looks like a tractor that Santa Clause would have owned.
