    Hey, there is no doubt that its cool but seems like a lot of work. I use the golf cart to pull cars in and out of my shop. Looks like it would be hell on grass while turning.

    he really doesnt have that much time in it. was very easy to do. hardest part was finding a decent tractor to cut in half. just mated the two tractors together and some welds on the side and angle iron across the top. welded a pulley to the top of the first tranny. used two fenders and welded a panel inbetween them, some bondo and paint.

    Now all it needs is...

    All it needs now is another seat,or a pickup bed on the back(a better choice in my opinion!)..I made a tractor that has a dump bed attachment on it--its dead now,needs a motor--but it was handy as hell when working 500' away from the garage for carrying all the tools,and other junk you need--saved a long hike to the toolbox too!..I might fix it someday..

    The guy did a good job on that conversion!--almost looks factory!..do the transaxles "fight" each other,or do they feel like the ratio's match close?..I bet it pulls good and climbs over anything in its path easily.! :bow: :crazy:

    Should not be a problem. The diffs would have spider gears to prevent tearing up the grass and make it easy to turn.

    6x6 complete

    well you have all heard and seen most of the project

    but ryan did not admit he's the cause of this creation

    to those wondering it can tear up some dirt but does not seem to affect the grass to bad
