Not on this, It has only the Mule drive for the deck on the front, I do have 2-White GT's and a RanchKing that has the front PTO for the shaft drive Snow Thrower.It looks great!
My parents had one very similar, but 18hp (still the cool 6-speed high/low tranny).
It was a while ago, but I remember there being some sort of front PTO output. I thought there was something available there, presumably for running a snowblower or something. Am I remembering correctly, or making that up?
Finished painting it, reassembled it, installed it and made a quick run around the yard. I can now load up (6) 5 gallon buckets, the feed buckets I use to do morning chores. It has good strong lower bracing and the tow bracket plate is still accessible. Now to beat the h*ll out of it.Can't wait to see the final pics of that basket, installed! Sounds like a fantastic idea!
Wow, I totally forgot about that! I have two cast concrete weights for my FEL but designed for the back weight box that came with it. I guess my next project is a front frame mounted weight bar and cast concrete suitcase weights to fit. I suppose a couple of thicknesses to have variable weights to add depending on the load? 20, 10, 5 etc. plus spacers to tighten up the weights. My yard is bumpy and I don't want to lose a weight while I am on the move.That does look pretty nice.
Watch yourself taking off forward when you have a load on.
I had to mount 38 lbs of counter weight up front to keep mine from popping wheelies when I have the tool box on the back.
Dang it. Now I got a dump tractor in my head! >Did you build it so it can flip backwards to dump? That would be cool.
Well, from what I've read and experienced, the stock Craftsman ring alternator on my T-1000 is remarkably under whelming in keeping the battery charged. I bought this tractor used about two years old, and replaced one battery so far and have had to charge it up about once a month. It seems easier to frame mount a new alternator and route a second pulley and belt than it will be to pull and replace what will be another underwhelming ring alternator.Great work so far!! But why use a second battery? I
Sarcasm was intended however, not any snarkiness. My Girlfriend gives me the look when I start talking tractors- I am behind on so many projects in getting the ones I own into the forms I need them.I can't tell how much of that is sarcasm (probably a lot), but a sketch would be cool...
As JP stated, it will be tail heavy, Add stability by stretching the wheel base, adding a second differential and wheel set, a nose weight or any or all three.Per JP Savage- "Watch yourself taking off forward when you have a load on. "
