Made a little more progress this weekend. Got the arms test fit on the tractor before I weld in the cross beam which is the next step. Decided to mount the pump in the front so I was working on a pump mount along with with where the tower braces will mount as well. Hopefully will continue to make progress in the upcoming weeks but I also need to get prepared for winter.

Well fellas,here she is,all cleaned up and mine now! I was wrong however, it's got 450hrs on it but still in primo shape and worth every penny spent for it. It ran leaving his house but I still like to go through my stuff,so she's got a fresh tune up with new fuel,fuel filter,oil change ,air filter,plugs,ect...
Gotta say it's not your average riding mower,can definitely tell it's more of a beast and I can see it working out quite nicely. Tks for the posts here,definitely gave me a little push into getting it now! Now for the attachment hunt!

That's still low hours and yes they are a very nice machine. The power steering is neat but takes a little getting used to.

So little progress has been made lately. I managed to weld the cross beam and gussets to the arms. The reason it has been going a little slow is I had to modify the subframe because I got a new addition to the tractor as seen below. I got fortunate enough that it was about 45 minutes from me and I managed to scoop it up. Very excited...

I am also looking more at putting the pump in the middle like cvans did. It is a very very tight against the subframe. It looks like I may have about an 1-2 inches behind the pump but that's where the pump outlet and drain port come out and I don't know if I have enough room with elbows or not. I will have to do more measurements and connect everything to verify if it will fit or not.
