Tractor to Truck

Conversion of a garden tractor to a mini-pickup truck.

Full set of images in gallery.

After aquiring a rather beat but functional Poulan lawn tractor, I was faced with the challange of what to do with it.  I have a "regular" machine to just mow grass....ho hum. I have the Craftsman Beast to plow and do other chores, and a green Lawn Boy which will be a glorified off-road go cart to putter in the woods.

I just added some land to build a pond...then thought to myself, "self, you will need to move stuff around and you don't like to push a wheel barrow." So..I am converting this to a mini-pickup truck.

By extending the wheel base I add room for a bed. This is a work in progress. Plan to try to convert a scisor jack with an older 12V drill motor to make an electric dump truck.

Stay Tuned.

And here is it!
