As much as we poke fun at odd contraptions and hack jobs, which I find great pleasure, I kinda respect this one.

Guess we'll just have to razz him about his grass.  Looks like he needs something that'll spray a weed killer!  :wave:

So, why?  Needed front wheel clearance for the blade?  I bet need weight up there with sprayer full of liquids too. Does look like nice work, just odd combination a sprayer with a Blade?  ON the lawn, I believe it it is Green, it works, heh!  NO spraying at my place then.

It reminds me of a John Deere x748 or whatever those x-series John Deere tractors are.  They just look like slightly larger version of a cheap box store John Deere lawn tractor with the axle pushed farther forward.  Very chintzy, plastic, overpriced, and ugly in my opinion.  I wouldn't ever even consider for a second trading one of those for my old 1855 Snapper. 

 

At least this guy did a halfway decent job on this customization unlike some other hacks out there that cob up machines.

Interesting combo, but tastefully done.
I suppose he needed one or the other, then decided to multi tool it.
