Well as winters approaching I've been doing a lot of work to my lawn tractor converting it from mower to plower for the winter. i ran it last year and plowed every snow storm we had with it and i think it will perform even better this year.
here is where i left off last winter making the plow, i half assed a set of chains with ratchet straps.
i got tired of plowing wearing a flashlight on my head so i decided to make a roll bar since i was plowing in some areas with potential risk and i have a big pond in the back yard with a 10 foot drop bank into it i mow pretty close to the edge in the summer so the roll bar seamed like a good idea to mount lights to and i have used it a few times now.
so this fall if rewired the tractor (it caught on fire a few times so the wiring was questionable) i fixed the low range new tire chains and wheel weights bolted to the rims i made a new set of custom headers (sound awesome) made a brass knuckle shifter bullet case switch for my lights i had some old stickers off the jeep i put on it and painted it black sweet rpm gauge i had from the jeep lol I've decided I'm leaving the hood off now and will eventually make a containing box for the battery and electrical.
