Here's more pics.  If the tractor show Saturday doesn't get rained out I'll post pics of the show.  Rick

CR., That really turned out nice. I love the use of the WH hood for the mower hood. :thumbs:  I would like to know how long you can mow with 1 12vt. battery if you ever get the chance to run it out of power.

Got the decals, installed them. Then used the 682 to drive around the village to do some show and tell.(bragging).  The name is a  combination of my and the wife's names, the model number indicates 12 volt 32".  The weather forecast has us getting rained out on Saturday.  Raindate will be the following Saturday.  Found out it has a HIGH SPEED wobble. Had to run the 682 at about half speed on the street.  The front casters would start flopping back and forth.         Rick

Not sure exactly how long it will last.  Mowed my yard with it a week ago . took about 45 min. and you could tell it was slowing down.

Speaking of which the EVRTW is wanting me to go mow NOW.   Gotta make her happy.  Rick

Looks great. To bad about maybe being rained out.

You pushed yourself to get it done in time.

Well, that`s mother nature....damn her....

That is going to look real good, Rick! Did you make those front swivel spindles? Those are pretty neat, like to have some like that.

Kenny.  I told you wrong before. the spindles are off of a Dixon ZTR.    I keep losing track of where everything came from. The  front wheels, tires and spindles----Dixon       mower deck----Snapper     electric motor and steel for carriage-----electric lift truck    Tongue and coupler ----- repurposed from another project       misc. steel--- scrap pile     battery--- on sale at Menards     solenoid and cables-----napa        key switch and box------ electrician at work.    paint---- Big R            I've got about $150.00   invested  But so far it is priceless!    Rick

Thanks! I'll keep an eye out for a pair of those! Think they would work well for the pull behind I want to build!
