This is the first thing I fixed... welded a new tab on for the steering, it's still too short, I'll be fixin that Saturday)

My in-laws have the Yard Machines version of that exact tractor. Do you have a turning radius issue with yours? Theirs from the first day I have used it, it has about a 8ft turning radius. It's horrible in both directions. Curious if you had that issue and if you fixed yours?

Outside of that it is a great machine.

Looks like your diggs has a cabin feel. Cool!

turning radius is abysmal... I will eventually do a direct steer with this mower. It improved some with the shorter tab on the spindle, but now that wheel turns TOO fast... drilling a hole right behind the stock one may improve the radius just enough to help.

I saw that lol. Way back when I made an air cleaner box out of a huge plastic peanut butter jar, a little piece of pipe, and an air cleaner from a predator 212. Worked well but I just went back to the stock box eventually.

New place looks good. Are those deer under the shed there?

That is what I was figuring. Mods to their mower isn't in the cards. Thanks!

I was just thinking the same thing! You have quite a skill.

I'm actually liking the idea of making the forge out of mower/car parts... could use a vehicle air pump for the blower driven by an old 3 1/2 hp briggs! brake drum set in a mower deck, push mower handles for legs, air flow controlled by choke cable and butterfly valve... LOLOL it's actually quite doable
