We watched this as a family. Almost made us feel normal
If all else fails you could always do this. You won't need anything mechanically at all except maybe an Emergency room visit later on.
Possible new $20 project

I'm thinking of gathering as many as I can to have a new entry in the parade this year.

All right, here we go.
First item on the list is to get the rubber down,and plastic out.
I had an old town behind spreader that had the right size tires and spacer
I ended up cutting 4" of the hollow driveshaft off the spreader, which fit snuggly over the oem wheel shaft.
Maggie wanted to help, so she had to use the deadblow hammer.
so the spacer slips over the driveshaft, then the wheel slips over and the throw on a snap washer. BUT..... the drive off the elec motors is "cogged". Well, a plastic four spaced, so I devised a plan. The wheel rims are PVC, and are rather light. I ended up cutting 1" off the inner rim axle, and also rounded out the yellow, plastic cogg so it would marry up to the drive cog. I took some 3 1/2" grabber screws and wola!, the wheels engage and do just fine.

I also upped the voltage to a pair of 12v 12 amp batteries.
Now, I want to upgrade the drive motors to either a tandom or single drive high torque motor so it can pull a plow for spring.
Also, a 12 volt ESC that will allow for smoother starting and with the two speed, it should help a lot.
then its new ag tires.
