So I mentioned before I wanted to build a anphibious lawnmower. I have told this to a few people and they are like your an idiot. Well I fish in my pond a lot and I am to cheap to buy a small boat. So here is what I am thinking. I would drive it by using a trolling motor. I would tie it in to my battery so my charging system would run it. The trolling motor is a great way to steer it also. I would mount it to the back of my mower. I would leave the mower running but out of gear until I got to the shore so it would keep my battery charged. I have a friend who sells plastic drums 55 33 30 gallon for like 10$ a pop. I figured I would mount 2 55 gal barrels one on each side right by the rear wheels then a 33 gal in the front. Any questions or comments? I am unsure how I should secure the barrels or if I should use wood or steel.. I figured I would leave it up to you guys. My pond is a little over the size of a football field..
