Thats cool as heck man! Rear steer must be handy as all get out. I agree with ya on the weight though...it takes a bit to realize more capacity.
That was one of the deciding factors in using this mower and the fact that the foot platform did not stick way out in front like the other models.I had a similar lift installed on the rear of a Power King and it would lift the rear of my truck.This things weighs nearly 300 lbs more than the PK as it left the factory.
I like it! Takes a bit to get the bugs worked out of a build! I think you have a solid plan to make it do what you want.
The diesel ran off the crankshaft end of the engine so I installed the Kawasaki to run off the crank end not thinking that they ran in opposite directions.That was a huge bug.
neat machine. I could sure use it.
OK Just make sure you bring it back by next weekend.I could have dropped it off as I was in Maiden last weekend.How far are you from Maiden?
VERY nice conversion
That almost looks 'purpose built'.
The rear steer is definitely a plus.
My Bolens with the Fl attachment is front steer, and while it's handier than pockets on a shirt, it is a bit cumbersome.
I also has two brake pedals and it will almost turn a full circle.Does the Bolens get around off road very well?
Build a big honkin battery tray on the back, put a 8D in it, and switch
it back to electric. You could make the back bracket in such a way, that you could
hang more weights on it too.
That would be a very hand rig to have around. Nice project.
I have been thinking about that very idea for several weeks now but due to the cost of the battery and the fact that I have tons of weights(figuratively speaking),I think I will install more weights.I would like to have the rear tires foam filled but I have not checked into finding someone locally who does i.
