I like the placement. Do any brands use a left side pedal or lever? I can't think of any.

Looking good Daniel, glad to see the neutral safety switch installed.

 

I think he's making it idiot proof, just in case I can't find room on the trailer to

bring a plowing machine to the event in Sept. :smilewink:

I've never seen anything on the left either.  Maybe I just wanna be different.  :smilewink:

Well, I needed this to protect an idiot alright....me!  I've been slammed forward & backwards too many times!  And I was afraid to let anyone drive it like it was.  It'll be ready this year!

Man Daniel, you have some fabbing talents, like we didn't already know. Looks great. 

Not sure if you have enough weight on the back though  :poke:

That is excellent!  You need to start offering these as retrofits for others who want a lever controlled hydro.

Fired up Hogzilla today for the first time in months.  Unhooked the tiller, then gave her a pressure washing.

She's in the shop now, and I'm trying to figure out the paint color scheme I want before taking her apart.  I think I have it figured out the colors I'll use, and of course the main color is RED!  I think I'll go with all the tin red, including the chassis, with wheels still white, with a wide white stripe down the hood sides with the "Hogzilla" stickers in the stripe in black.  Engine may stay Kubota gray, with the bumper, 3pt lift, and fuel tank satin black.

Likely take me till spring to finish this.

I think I have all the paint I need except for the Kubota gray.  I may just use spray can on the engine, as one can will do and I won't have to buy a whole quart.

Oh heck no, and don't expect me to be a speeding bullet this go round.  I ain't what I used to be, but it'll eventually get done.  Not felt so good today.  Couldn't sleep last night so laid on the couch watching murder mystery shows.  Woke up stiff & sore from the couch and never felt good all day.

I seem to be stuck in a 'go-to-bed early, get up at 3Am phase! I need to break that! Just document as you go, Daniel! And when I go for paint on the Allis, please give some help there!

Got started on the disassembly, then had to switch to fixing Dad's zero turn.   Got his deck repaired then got back to the JB.  I left the diesel in the cradle it was mounted in on the blacktop sealing machine I got it off of.  This way when I pull it, the radiator stays with it, making things much much simpler.

To paint it right, well, half right, things need to come apart as far as possible.  I will not however be pulling the hydro & trans.  Just too much extra work, and I can get to most everything for paint without pulling all that.  I'll do more disassembly after lunch.
