I decided to build one.

In the one shed, I found a good tank.

And in another shed, I found an old compressor, which

I tested, and it works good.

It's an old DeVilbiss. That rectangular cap, above the crankshaft bearing, is

where you add oil. It flips up.

 

I've got the frame welded up, tank modified with mounting brackets, and an

unloader valve on order.

Next, will be the clutch/tensioner and belt guard. I may make it different, so

it covers the engine pto pulley too. That's a nasty pinch point.

Looks good, Will! See, that old tractor has come in handy already! You can use it to build things for the pretty ones!

If you used swivel fittings on the ends (like through the bung drain opening) it could double as a front-mounted lawn roller with a bit of fab work.

That will be real handy Will. The area beside the pump could be used for a small reservoir. When connected to a cheap blow-gun with syphon tube attachment*, you can paint, spray insecticide, soap etc--virtually any liquid, where-ever you can drive the tractor.

 

I cleaned inside my diesel fuel tank with air and syphoned diesel last week. I couldn't remove the tank and didn't want to wash it with soap and water.

 

* Harbor Freight about $10

Yeah, thaaaat's thinking...... :poke:

 

But, I could add a "U" shaped pipe fitting thingy, with wee little holes

in it, and use it to blowdry the sidewalk after a rain....

Fantastic headway in a very short order.

Amazing.

Also love the fact you have a pic of what you're trying to make taped to the tractor. :D

On those upcoming BIG jobs, you can plumb the compressor head to the rear of the tractor and tow a 60 GAL tank.

 

You'll be spraying weeds, fertilizing and painting the whole neighborhood !!    :D

I can't wait to mount it on my shiny MF12, throw on the coveralls, and go out and spraypaint my

picket fence white. Ooops, gotta build that fence first.. :D  And bring a drop cloth, to cover the MF12..

I got all the fab work done.

Tensioner, belt guard.

And I decided to go with the optional front luggage rack.

And everything is primed.

Wow Will, that looks great! Well done. :thumbs: You're quite the fabricator. Too bad you don't live closer, as I could give you a list of things to make for me.
