Build a snow plow and A set of wheels that attatch to the original spikes think that goes into the ground to hold the tiller back, and make it articulated. Then make a pedestal seat on top of those wheels to sit on, and turn it by pushing the handles like you normally do. But a snow and dirt plow would be sick, and should work well as the weight would be in the drive wheels!

so how to you ride it? do you have any video of it?

Its a walk behind, and no I don't have any video of it but I will take a quick one if I can.

The tines im leaving on, They help when I get stuck and they also help strengthen the axles. The fastest this thing goes is about 15-20 MPH in high gear.

ZSmachines, That's a pretty good idea, iv been trying to think of a way to sit on this thing so I wouldt have to walk behind it all
the time and that probably what ill do. Ill start on it tomorrow if I have all the materials. A snow plow is definitely something that ill be building for this thing soon.

Now you could also take and cut the back part of a lawn tractor frame off and make mounts and weld this into the back of the frame for a rear wheeled rear engine tractor and you could find another tiller that is the same and set it up exactly the same and make an articulated 4x4 that would also be great in the mud!!

Or you could make it into a articulating tractor like a front-loader

That's a pretty good idea, It would be pretty cool to have an articulating offroad tractor, all wheel drive with locked trannys
front and rear. Sounds almost unstoppable. But I don't have a welder anymore so it would be kinda hard to build without a welder, that and I don't have the cash at time. If I do it it will be hydro powerd.

I would just make a triangular hitch on the back of you project then put a seat and controls on your back IV Scene them with hydraulic and cables to turn I would just do that for now and add to it later

It would be cheaper and i could build that setup, but id be worried about getting this thing stuck deep in the mud, and try to
turn it and ethier stretch the belt or break the chain. I would be worried about breaking the setup. By having a hydro setup
as long as its built right i wont have any trouble.

Ya I have seen both ways but as long as you use enough pulleys and good enough cables I shouldn't be a problem if you look at olds boats they use cables and pulleys

That's a good idea, Ill look into it and see what I can do. I already got the cable about 50ft but I don't have pullys or enough
pullys.

Yeah, Im gonna try to get the setup up as high as I can. A lot of my farm is wide open field. But where I go riddin is out over the hill. If I brush hog it I will have no problems with steering Clarence, Tho clearance would be nice to have for the creek since it drops off.
