The original civilian jeeps had an option for a PTO, and rear gearbox, to run farm implements. I have one. You can use them to run a bush hog, or a finish mower.

Roof company, also made a mini-jeep mower. This one was at an auction I attended.

The golf course I worked at as a kid, had a ROOF mower for doing rough areas. If I remember correctly, it had a transport speed around 15 MPH. It didn't turn very sharp, but the hydro made it easy to drive.

That is wild, but it can`t be rally classed as a mower build, it would have to be a custom build from the ground up. There is nothing anywhere in that build that has any relation to a mower. But it is really sick

Upload them onto an online photo hosting site, such as Photobucket or picasa. I have no idea. I was hoping someone would come up with something so I could get some ideas for one of my own. Laughing Yeah, kinda greedy.

Properly sealed and braced, wood is perfectly capable of acting as body parts. It will also take a lot of stress while still being flexible.

Boat hulls and small aircraft have lots of wood parts.

A good epoxy coating over good dry wood, should last for decades. Olld skool dudes use things like spar varnish, etc. I epoxied old rotten wood into solid plastizised wood in my boat. It`s been done quite a few ways.

A fully amphibious vehicle could be built out of quarter inch plywood, with a very basic light steel frame, and some fiberglass cloth and cheap acrylic resins. If you got big bux, carbon fibre cloth and marine epoxy over foam, with an aluminum frame and you could have a James Bondmobile that weighed only a couple hundred pounds.

You need to either

a) upload your pics to a storage space and copy and paste the location to the 16th button from the left at the top of the post page. The buttons are grouped along the top under the subject line.

B) click on the 15th button and upload the picture from your computer to the webhost. then copy the link, and paste it to the 16th button.

you may have to rearrange the pics around in your post, preview lots.

Just a matter of personal opinion, but I think having the body kinda swallow the wheels, so to speak. Meaning, have the fenders go out just past the edge of the wheels.

Probably some golf cart rims with some bigger tires with some fare amount of tread.
