John Deere Cab Project- Here is another project I scratch built . I also tweaked the front snowblower and took a old 59" front snowblower and tweaked it into a rear box scraper. The snowblower was just a shell my neighbor gave me. I never used this setup even one time. But I sure enjoyed building it. I did sell this one to a fellow in the U.P. of Michigan. This tractor started out as a JD 430 Diesel.

Bolens/Iseki - Here is another little tractor I bought to convert into a 1/2 scale project. I had fun cleaning it up . I was told it ran good ?? After tearing down the little diesel engine I found a cracked block . Parts are rare and very expensive. More expensive than what I paid for it . So I removed the tires and rims and sold it at my cost. But I still had fun learning about this little diesel tractor. Anytime I have a little tractor sitting in my shop I am happy, ha,ha.

BEARING BUSTER PROJECT- Yesterday I built a little tool that they sell for over $40.00 plus shipping on line. I took some scrap pipe and some scrap steel rod and welded them together and cut a slit in the pipe with the plasma cutter just wide enough to slip over the shaft. Very easy , fun little shop project to pass the time this winter.

Lawn Trailers- I have had so much fun building small trailers , wagons, sulkies too. When I was young on the farm I loved pulling three real wagons up and down the roads to the fields. Hooking these little trailers reminded me of those days . These little projects have given me so much relaxation in the shop. Often using left over materials and tires I picked up cheap or even got free.

Garden tractors with big tires- Over the years I have almost always installed larger tires on my little tractors. Often the bigger rear tires would bolt right on by modifying the fenders. But the front spindles often had to be changed. Here are some I installed bigger tires. My favorite days were when they delivered new tires to my house.
