I search the web allot for ideas for my builds. Ive seen several crazy contaptions that were built from lawn & garden tractors. Go karts, golf carts, swamp buggies (those flat top things), mini jeeps, side by sides, bull dozers, and of course Doc Sprockets Mule builds deserve a category all there own (perhaps "Bad @$$ utility tractor").
So how bout a catagory for "utility tractors" and one for "tractor based contraptions"?

Giving utility tractors their own section may be a possibility but I believe that tractor based contraptions would belong in the Rat Rat Rod/Hybrid Tractor section or alternatively depending on how much it is based on a lawn tractor the Off Topic Project Builds section.

I pretty much agree with the above. If a build is way off the reservation it can go in other. FWIW, I consider MULE to be a Trailside Assistance/Recovery vehicle. I have started Building MULEII, and it will be even more so.

Our categories are designed around the most common build types. I think that if all of a sudden we saw several builds occurring that could be classified similarly and yet do not fit an existing category, we could quickly whip up a new one.

Thanks for the suggestion, and the props!!

Yea, ill support a utility section. Just have specific guidelines so you know what is a Utiliy, and what isn't.

Well... it would have to still serve a purpose beyond playin. Like recovery, plowing, or even still a working mower. I was thinking of an onboard generator. Maybe hydraulic implements.
