This is my first build. Its a MTD Tradesman. 18hp briggs opposed, two speed transaxle w/1" axles, vari-drive made it a 14 speed stock but I ditched it.

Just hit preview instead of send to see if posting a picture worked or not, then you can play with it to make it work without actually posting anything.

It holds up fine. It is showing a lil bending from a few rolls but its in no danger of colapse. If that last pic showed up you can see the steps on how it goes on and the inner support.

Current plan is to part out this one for another build. Wanna build my wards and my wifes yard machine with the parts. Hers will be 16hp speed/mud mower, mine a utility/trail/mud mower. Both are getting exo-cages.
