 Picked this up yesterday:

 

HPIM2872 (640x478).jpg

 

HPIM2873 (640x478).jpg

 

My 15+ year old 550 Mule ready for replacement, I've watched for a used 610 Mule for months with no luck, they all want nearly new price!  I found a pair of used Gators about 90 miles from home.  Went to check on them yesterday and came back with this '06 TS, all new tires, an after-market canopy, 1270 hours ( more than I prefered, but acceptable).  No breaks in the plastic, seats are shot (new ones on order), some minor dings in the bed, but nothing too bad, belly pan doesn't even have the paint worn off!  I'll be doing some work on it to suit my needs as time allows.

 

Now to get the Mule ready to sell!  ~~  Lowell

No retirement home -------------------------- yet!

 

This is what's in store for the Gator when the time comes:

That's the main reason I bought the Mule over a Gator the first time!  ~~  Lowell

New high-back seats are on!

 

HPIM2874 (640x478).jpg

I used 1-1/2" thinwall square tubing to make the new rear canopy frame, "flattened" expanded metal for the screen, which holds SMV, machete & steeple pullers.

 

HPIM2875 (640x478).jpg

 

A rack on the back frame now holds two receiver drawbars.

Frames for 8" sideboards are made, will finish with 1/2" AC plywood. ~~  Lowell

Nice gator! Looks like you're getting it outfitted quite nicely. Knowing your cart collection will you be setting up a green trailer for it to pull?

Hopefully I can find a #21 cart some time, or even a Gator bed to make one.  Not that I really need one, but!   :D   ~~  Lowell
