Feel like a new member, aint been here for a while. Never finished last years build... or the one before that. My back is still screwed and it is getting that time of year where I need to get my mowing rigs ready and all my "friends" need theirs worked on too. Belts and clutch on a Ferris 2561 for a friend with a tune up and oil change was around $1200 at the dealer. $400 in parts. I expect a good tip on this one. Sold my 5 acres for .66 in town on a lake and building a house... and building a YT3000 to mow it with. 4 bolt hubs for easy tire swap and widen the stance with ags and turfs, 9" to 4" on the TX, redneck striper kit for the deck, rattlecan chrome wheels so they all match, and ACR/ rings rebuild. Does that qualify for a build? I plan on keeping the slingshot, the skid steer ford and I got a GT18 that may or may not make trip. Lots of engines, TXs, front axles, wheels/ tires and misc BS are gonna get sold CHEAP. Anyone within driving distance of Kansas City, hit me up. I would rather give it away before I scrap it

Great to hear from you again!! Not so great to hear that you're still having back issues, but it sounds like you bought yourself a nice little chunk of property anyways.

Also very glad you still have the dragster build kicking around! We definitely all love that thing, haha. Take 'er easy!

Kansas City Missouri or Kansas? I'm not within driving distance lol, just curious.

I wasn't very active on the forum when you were first on, but I remember your dragster. Nice to hear you're on the forum again!

KCK and KCMO share the state line so it really isnt much of a difference. Wrenching on mowers and thought I would pop in and see what you guys are up to. Doing a quicky bolt on city mower build. Go fast(er), mow good, mild trails/mud and maybe push some snow on the lake if the ice ever gets thick enough and/or make a few extra bucks doing driveways.

This is awkward. Did I get banned? This is the only place I can post that doesnt show "forum locked". I was going to post a "budget / reliable city mower" build on a YT3000 I picked up cheap with a bad ACR. New tires, needed drive and deck belt anyway so why not throw in another $20 to double the speed, $20 for a homemade striper kit, 4 bolt wheel upgrade, ring and ACR replacement and $20 worth of chrome paint and Lucas quick shine. $350 in parts to mow like the ZTRs ( without the U-ys ), go (kinda) fast and still be able to hit the trails after  5 minutes to yank the deck. $700 may not sound like a budget build, but a new walmart stock version will cost you double that much and this one should last just as long.... unless you get paid to be stupid. This is a weekend project and not worthy of a buildoff entry. I am moving to town and have limited space for this kind of stuff (taking 3 big toys with me. need a multifunction machine)
