Well, the time has come to start this build. May not go very fast to start with, just brought the wheel chair lift back up yesterday. Gotta get it functioning again. I put the new belt on the F725 mower and the worn pulleys are eating it right up. Plust one of the PTO drive belts is about to give out. The lift valve needs rebuilt (if that is possible). Just more issues (and dollars) than I want to fool with. So the deck comes off and the lift gets fitted up to it.
Here's the link to the wheel chair lift thread I made some time back.
