I loved the Groundskeeper. The thing was huge. The guy's name that owns it is Bill. He was a Bolens dealer at one time and he has a lot of stuff.


And with those ags all around,it looks like a monster.It's pretty cool.

It was the Valspar paint that TSC sells in Ford Red.


I find New Holland red is exactly the same thing.

Those are great pics George! I have never seen a show dedicated to GT's locally. About 5 or 6 years ago, our club had a GT class in the pulls and we had about 50 show up, but most of them left right after the pulls. Are there any more pics of the weight transfer sled? I have an old truck with a standard trans that I think I could build one of those out of!

I don't know if I got any close ups of the sled. This was the first time in the last three shows down there that the sled didn't break. I think if you have a rear end you could definitely use that to be a good base to start with. I thought i had seen a set of sled plans on the internet at one time. I will have to see if I can do some digging.

To spend too much time looking. I'd probably do some improvising anyhow, what's a little more?

caseguy, the sled at fawn grove is built off a cub cadet rear and is light as gt sleds go and as for the breakdowns it needs heavier cable for the weight box and something to stop the transfer when it reaches the top. it was built by a couple of local gt enthusiasts.
