Just wondering if it would be possible to convert a self propelled blower to a thrower for a JD 318?

The service manager where I work says that everything is repairable if you throw enough money, parts and time in it, the real question... Is it viable?

Sounds like an interesting build, if you choose to do it, please take pics and share them. We would love to see the progress.

The thing to remember is that everything GT related was fabricated by someone at some point in time. Knowing that you can re-engineer and fabricate anew! But as MH81 pointed out, money can be a big obstacle. The right skill set is a must also. Don't let us dissuade you though! Keep us posted on your progress and decisions.
