well i figured it not goin to snow anymore this winter i went to put the blower away i thought some of you gus would want to see some pics of the gk with it on. so then i noticed the wheel sick out wider then the blower so, i seen in the manual if it had the 15in wheel they were fliped in so i did that an i think it looks better. so since i was workin on ot i ran a new wire an put in a new ignition switch an got the lights workin. now i have to test the gen bc its not charging so it either the gen or voltage regulater. i think it looks better with the wheels fliped in. what do you guys think?

well im puting 26- 12.00x12s on it so im not buying the 15in ag tires they cost too much compaired to the 12in plus with it lower it will be alot easier to get in an out off an the tires will be 12 inchs wide instead of 7. and it alot easier to find 12in bolens weights then the 15in bolens weights

I think the 12 x 26 on it would look great. Let me see if I can't dig up the one pic of the one Grounds Keeper I seen at the one show. I am pretty sure they had ags on it.

I found one of the pics I had in my attachment library. I am pretty sure they are 12" rims.

The Grounds Keeper looks amazing! :dancingbanana:

Too bad you didnt get to test the blower. I bet that single stage really throws by the looks of it!

That blade looks pretty tough too. Wheels in looks a little better.
