TRB, it is... it just surprised me that the voltage to the front lights was so low... I will take another reading and verify it, with both AC and DC...

ill check voltage on the solenoid with and without the tractor running, and see if theres a difference, and may pull power for LED driving lights from there...

We are supposed to bring it to my inlaws farm, and will let him drive around the fields... will get some video, hopefully!

now, for the spring, plans are just to make it a little faster with pulleys, probably get a kill switch, paint, and should be good to go! Laughing

Very nice build there fellow Virginian. Smile  Very nice job. Nice stance. Come on over sometime. I like good looking clean builds. Just is all the more worth it.

thank you, Jeff!

yours was the inspiration to our "mini" build... it is on pause for now, until weather allows for paint! the good thing is, its a runner, so we can still have fun this winter! Smile

where in VA are you? I am trying to build a real hidden hitch for my car, and after that, moving around to other areas is a possibility!

hope all is well!

oh wow.. youre out close to the beach! wonder how people would react seeing a lawn tractor riding on the beach?? lol

well, keep working in it! I am waiting for warm weather to paint! speed is also on the plans... hopefully will be a simple task.. lol

I like how you reused the pulley from the mower deck... i dont have a welder, so thats gonna be a challenge for the time being...

need to get a newer gas tank.. mine is cracked on both sides under the mounting bolts... hope to find something local

thank you!

the plan is, red on the hood and fenders, spray on bedliner on the floorboards, real brushed aluminum dash... once I get switches for LED driving lights and maybe a gauge or 2...

should look good.. now just need to buy material to build a "carport" for the side of the shed... Very Happy
