You need to come on over some time and see it and the L3E. Summer is coming up and the 400 needs a new heart ASAP!
Yeah, I want to do that this weekend. I got a new tube put into the flat front tire on the Broyhill lawn truck and I'm filling it with RV anti-freeze for ballast as we speak. Also got the new fuel tank installed. Next I need to get the hitch hooked up.... I've got the mounting plate fabbed for the front of the machine, I'm just not sure how I want to hook things up to it.
The things I plan to use on the front of this is a de-thathcher, a mower--like a zero turn with casters, and a small snow blow--it's not strong enough to handle something really big, but a 10 or 12 inch should be fine. The mounting plate is 16" wide, though in retrospect I could have made it wider at the front end as the curve is on the inside of the lift frame... anyway... I'm kind of leaning towards something like the JD quick hitch, though most JD accessories would be too heavy for it...
So, as soon as this last gallon of A/F siphons into the front tire, I'll be going at the hitch--it'll probably take me the rest of today, but there's always tomorrow. I also want to bring my Mitsi radiator down so you can use it to test run your machine, etc.
