I made several trailers , just a small trailer with ramps and a storage box on the front. 

   Todays make over started as a $100.00 Montgomery Wards . It sat in a shed for several years . It needed a fuse and I got it running the same day . It smokes real bad but runs. We have a tractor like this on  the farm still being used. I always wanted to try building a narrow front mini tractor. This is one of my favorite projects.

Thanks,

  No the hand clutch is just for looks.

 Todays $100.00 makeover is the Simplicity project and I always wanted to make a hot rod looking tractor for my little grandson.

Fun project :thumbs:

 The exhaust stack is perfect size :D

  Todays repaint project was my first jd 110. I bought it from a neighbor for $250.00 . I just had to put bigger tires on it and a vertical exhaust stack. Then sand all the parts and paint them , then build a mid mount belly blade for it . This is one of my favorites. :dancingbanana:

Nice re-posting of all your projects Don.

 

Does the tricycle have steering up under the frame? I kow you probably have it in a build thread.

Cool project,

   I used mostly the existing steering system and just tweeked the couplings . 

 Todays 2nd jd 110 project repaint was $250.00 . It came with a nice working mower deck and a very nice solid straight snow blower.

The mower deck has to be worth $50.00 and the that nice blower has to be worth $100.00 so I kinda got the tractor for $100.00, ha,ha.

Todays pics show the third jd 110 round fender repaint project. I paid $350.00 for it because it had all the original parts and the hood had no cracks in it. Also it was only a few miles from my house. The snowblower will go on this one. The 110 round fenders are some of my favorites because of the childhood memories using them on the farm.

Five days after I placed the add for the jd 430 I took it back off. Below zero windchills now for over 2 weeks I decided to wait til the weather gets a little nicer, ha,ha.  22 inches of new snow in the last 10 days but I have still not used the new jd 4x4 . We only get a few inches each day so no sense yet in getting it dirty and salty, ha,ha.
