I thought some of you guys might get a kick out of my latest creation.
I only want to move things between the truck and the garage and a little firewood on pallets around the yard. The steel was cheap, the 2k winch I had lying around and the tractor I bought to rob the motor for my splitter but it runs and mows so well I decided to keep it as is. I only paid 120 for the mower. Forks are removable.



and an action shot

Thanks guys.
Kbietz, I'm sure I looked your old sears over before building mine, I looked at all I could find of them.

Well I'm not sure this is going to stay. I have noticed some hard steering and I do use it to mow so I don't want to ruin the tractor. I may have to find a better base to swap the lift onto.

That's a given when you apply a 500 lb load ahead of the steering wheels. Even the steering box in a heavy GT is going to suffer from hard steering and accelerated wear under those conditions unless it has power steering. Tie rods and such are going to wear faster in any event. Power steering hides that fact until failure occurs.

If you took off the forks and put on a trip bucket, you have a great front rnd loader
