My "Husqie" RestoMod.

Well, some may see it as a Frankenstein of a mower, but I find it a little more fun to mow now...

Very cool..........nicely done

Folks say I'm lazy, drunk and stupid. Well, I got news for them......they're only 2/3 right.

They say you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but I've always had my best success with a dead squirrel

Want to see what happens when you join parts from about 6 GT's, farm tractors, walkbehinds, ship parts, push mowers, trailers, scrap air compressors, CNC lathes, junk refrigerators, tread mills and more? If so, check out me and Mike's most excellent Gravely Custom Build and Adventure Thread

That's a Hot Rod Mower, reminds me of the muscle cars of years ago. Really nice!

Re: My "Husqie" RestoMod.

Thanks! The Lowes near my house sells a Rustoleum "farm tractor" paint specifically called Husqvarna Orange. I did not find a specific Husqie Gray (since all the gray on the tractor is plastic, not paint), so I matched it as best I could with another Rustoleum paint. I think it turned out good enough.

Re: My "Husqie" RestoMod.

Haha really cool mod, however I think your near visibility went from bad to worse! The big hood was a major pain for me when I had a HQ tractor, I would actually use it without it and considered making a smaller version of it.
