Hello from currently freezing cold Mid Missouri! I say this because just last week it was almost 80 and now there's 2 inches of snow on the ground. The name is Seth! Nice to meet all of you.
Bit about me, 21, currently attending State Technical College of Missouri dual majoring in Electronic Engineering and Bio-Medical Engineering. I work for a college radio broadcasting network. My vehicle fleet consists of a 2005 Dodge Durango, 2003 Ram 2500, both Hemi powered, 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 EFI, and my current project, 1946 Willy's CJ-2A, and it's expensive.
I'm fairly new to the modded mower scene, but I have a good idea of how to do things and what I want to do. I want to run with 2 projects, one at a time of course just gonna roll with whatever falls into my lap first. I want to do something that can be small and relatively quick. Not go-kart small but nothing huge and heavy. Possibly a Murray or a Wheel Horse. The other would be something big and heavy for fun and for work, and of course diesel powered. I need something that is smaller than the Ranger to help a buddy on his farm move equipment around, and a small mower with a diesel engine could do no problem! Inspiration credit goes to FearlessFront with his awesome Sears beast. Got NO idea what kind of mower I could go with this, and unfortunately around here, there aren't many junk mowers able to be saved and the rest are over $300, so I'll have to work with it or travel 5-6hours.
Anyways, enough rambling, ready to get in here and talk about these awesome beasts everyone is building and breaking!
