   A few weeks ago there was a thread on here for a bush hog tractor and there were pics of an original brush guard bumper on the bush hogs.  I immediately got front bumper envy.  Well the other nite I got to dinking beer and playing in the garage and here is what I came up with.

    It hooks rite to the front end where the snow blower and mower deck pins are so I did not have to drill any new holes, I thought it was pretty slick, looks good on there to.  going to take it to work to weld it up and get it blasted and ready for paint.

Nice! The only thing I would suggest; if you hit something with it, it may bend back. You might want some diagonal side bracing.

Sweet setup. Is that a muffler on the muffler?

Yep! muffler on a muffler. welded the two together, keeps it nice and quiet and directs what noise there is down and away.

I like it!

 

I hope this bumper envy isn't catching, but I think I might have the start of a sore throat....

   Got it done yesterday and put it on this morning, looks pretty darn good.  I like it !!!!!!!! I can even stand rite on it and it does not move at all, very solid.   I took a little advise from here and beefed the braces up a bit as well, should work well for awhile.
