I thought about putting rubber sweepers on in place of blades, opening up the front, and using it to sweep and move shallow snow.

Also thought about building self powered, tow behinds for ATV's, using smaller engines, and simple frames with casters.

If I had a matched pair, or three of a kind, i could build and sell a double/triple gang folding mower for doing ditches etc.

or you cuold replace the blades with cable or chain, and build a flail mower.

Ive been thinking of taking a matching pair of decks and an engine and making a dual-deck pull behind to mow the lawn with. I have a huge lot in front of my house as well as the backyard, and mowing it all is fairly time consuming. Ive slowly been cutting less and less.
