BTW, that ain't mesh, that's 14 gauge goat fence....
Great job, looks really cool!

Haha thanks mighty. It wasn't too bad, I've done it a bunch when I did the grille so is was nothing new.

Well whatever you wanna call it, no need to get technical now.
I can tell you that it wasn't made from fence of any sort, it was from an old cage that I cut apart.

These mesh rack designs seem really practical on a tractor that will see some mud because the mud and water will just fall right through the mesh for the most part. I like how it matches your front grille. That's a unique look you have there.

Thanks Carl! I figured the rack would be alright on this one because it might not see too much mud, but it can be like the service tractor with the winch and all the tools, haha.

I decided to put the GT 6000 up on the little RTI the other day, just kinda curious how much articulation it has.





About 8" which isn't too bad. If I can get my hands on some snowmobile leaves I would like to be able to get some more out of 'er. Hopefully I can find a pair sometime soon and start fabbing that up.

Thanks mr.mod! Lights would be cool, maybe behind the grille? I'd have to build a heat shield for them though maybe.

And be able to see in the Dark! LOL. Never know when you need to do something that the GT6k would be perfect for and it is dark. LOL

Yeah that would be nice for sure. I got a good size automotive battery in it too, so between the winch and a couple lights it would probably do just fine.

If you have not got any lights on hand, I do recommend Nilights.  I have the 7 inch bar on my mower and I can mow 3am if I wanted, it is so bright.  Mine was free to me, but I'll buy one in a heartbeat.  I'm actually thinking of getting a couple pair of them this year.

If you lived in the usa I have some old lights that are kinda like what you have on the mtd that I'd just give you, but I think it's expensive to mail things to another country.

Yeah it'd probably be cool to have two lights on the bumper and then a light bar behind the grille, or somethimg like that. Then I would have tons of light!

lol that'd be so overkill, I'd use a 7" lightbar up front and either one or two of the 3" lights on the back for rear work lights.

Since we are on an overkill, you have a car battery on that thing.  How about putting a pulley on that unused PTO up front and installing an automotive alternator?  Then you can have just about any lights and really not worry with that winch.
