By the way, if you are thinking of putting ATV tires on your tractor, make sure that you still have clearance if you plan on using a mower deck. I have a 1455 that the previous owner put ATV tires on, and I cannot use a deck on that tractor. The tires hit an installed deck. Not good!

I'm attaching a motor cycle trailer to the tractor today to haul things around like tools and kids.

I know its dark but this was fun. Hauled my kids around in this vintage motorcycle trailer. I will have to clean it up and paint it to match the tractor. Also I am gonna put in some bench seats.

OK so my kids really need a covered wagon. I spent the whole day on this project. I can't wait to make it all work.

I made these portable boat seat mounts to put in the trailer. I have two new boat seats to put in it. I will move them to my folding boat and back whenever I need to.

Yes they did and you can find them on craigslist every now and then in the $200-400 range depending on condition.
