Something a little different from me.

This is my Friends 320 that we picked up last spring it had a Kawasaki liquid cooled vtwin That lit fire there was No engine it has a blower and mower (mint) we proceeded to Rebuild it and from a Tip we found a Kohler CV18 for $20 (Runs too) put that in there Needs some Tinkering tho And this is the roller he build from a old pipe that has ends welded on it My guess is that it weighs 500-600 pounds ..

(Note there will be more added later tonight Just had a minute)

Cool roller you guys made.But what caught my eye was the winch mounted to the front of the 320. I made my own mount for a winch for my 140, before I sold it. I know you're not supposed to, but I also built a frame for the front of the tractor and used the winch as a hoist. Mostly to move 80 pound silo staves and landscape blocks around when building patios, retaining walls, and the base for my shed. I sold the 140 about a 18 months ago, and last year, refitted the winch and hoist frame to fit my 318.


I have a lot of fun figuring out how to make simple things like that for my tractor, It's a little hard, since I don't have a welder and don't weld, so I usually scavage metal pieces and reuse them in my "inventions".

Can't believe you salvaged that nice looking engine for 20$. The tractor looks great and that roller looks like it'll do a nice job.

That's a real nice roller you guys built.  Looks like it will do the job.  tractor looks right too.  I like the winch on the front.  That's a good idea.
