My latest non-skoolie project:
I am building a monster snow blower by marrying a commercial walk behind lawn mower with an old heavy duty snow blower, and of coarse I am also building tracks. Afterall, what good is a snow blower without tracks?
The original machine had a 5hp engine. The new machine has a 12.5 hp Kawasaki fb460v engine. Hydraulic drive, with right/left completely independent from each other and infinitely variable forward/reverse speed control. One track can even go in reverse while the other is going forward.
I also plan to add lights, over-speed the blower, and add a few inches to the width.
It's not pretty so far, but I have made good progress on the tracks.
I will post more as the project progresses.....
