I think I finished it off with just over $300 including the tractor invested..

 

 

Pushes snow amazing.

Saving and repurposing I a far cry better than melting down and being cheap brake rotors.
Nice job, I'm sure it thanks you.

Does it have a lifetime warranty now with a Snap On seat?

 

I think you did a fine job, by the way.  :thumbs:

Great to see some thing saved and used. I was wondering why the yellow paint not red ? Still looks great, just wondering. Noel

Thanks guys!

 

I had originally painted it red... But I moved the seat back... Had to re paint so I stripped it down and tried yellow... I like yellow machines... And it sticks out in the big parking lot I'm scraping.. :wave:

 

 

The engine I used is a brand new 9hp 270cc OHV from princess auto..

 

I split open the muffler and removed the baffling, and re worked it for the stack.. The fumes from the OE muffler design was killing me. The stack is functional..

 

 

My transaxle is solid.. fresh oil in it..

 

It been really souped up... Lots of fixes and improvements. But this wasn't really restoration.. It was to far gone to save the details.

 

This project was more of an experiment to see if I could make something of nothing. And it worked..

 

Wheelies all day without the plow... Its flippin' hilarious...

Sounds great. Great to have fun and yes the yellow paint is an eye catcher.  Should work good.    Noel
