I thought about making one from a John Deere once. Does that count?

I think it might, but it actually has to work once...?

   How about the bottom rails from an elliptical machine :D and an old walk behind hood :thumbs:stuff 031.JPG   Almost done now, just a few more things to do.

I don't make tractors, but I use a lot of odd stuff as tractors.

 

But that doesn't count.

   The frame is the aluminum rails out of an elliptical machine, I welded them into the T shape and modified them to be my frame rail.  Glad you like it.
