PostSubject: The Orange Deere   The Orange Deere Icon_minitimeFebruary 24th 2014, 10:28 pm

I have a Scotts that's made by John Deere, that's why I call it the Orange Deere. I've got it from my neighbor because he was getting rid of it because of a blown engine. I first started off by replacing it with a 18 hp opposed Briggs.
The Orange Deere 05181310

Next I added lights so I could see at night and to look cool!

The Orange Deere 05041310

At this point I realized that I wanted to make this thing a romper instead of cutting grass.  I thought I would need a little speed so I did a pulley swap on my 5 speed Splicer. I went from a 6 inch to a 4 inch on the back.  Then I added a front brush guard - Bumper so I don't bang up my front end.

I then made a light guard for my new 7.5 inch led light bar i got off of Amazon.

Now i'm currently building a rear bumper - rear rack and will be getting new front and rear tires.

For the exhaust I used the stock mufflers but had to cut the end off to add on flex pipe to go around the frame. I'm wanting to in the future make the exhaust straight pipe to make it sound good.

For the front tires I'm getting the 16x6-8 x-Trac. I'm not sure yet about the rear tires but I'm thinking about having 22 inch in diameter but it needs to fit on my 8x8 rims.

Tires look pretty mean on there. I've been on the look out for some used snow blower tires, but haven't found any just yet.

On surpluscenter.com both front tires with rims only cost about $46. Pretty cheap if you ask me.
