I started off with a Wheel Horse mower and used the main frame, engine and transmission and the rest are parts from here and there. Used a hand clutch handle off a J.D. H, an air breather off of a J.D. R pony motor, seat from an old tobacco setter, rear wheels off an old Monarch tiller, front wheels are wheel barrow wheels and I bent the ring around them. Hood, made from scratch as well as air breather and muffler. Radiator is out of an old car, used the core and framed it with 3" channel, the top of the radiator is actually the gas tank. The belt pulley works & stops when you pull the hand clutch back. I have more photos somewhere from when I started it but got to find them. All it needs now is green & yellow paint. The steering box is modified off of a Cub Cadet. The transmission has high & low giving me 6 forward & 2 reverse. In low 1st you can walk faster than it goes. All the miniature tractors I have seen all have rubber wheels, I wanted something different.
