John Deere Snow-Mower
« on: June 17, 2009, 09:35:44 AM »

Hi guys / gals,
I thought I would give you a preview of what is to roll out of my garage this summer. I am in the process of merging a JD 210 Lawnmower with a JD Liquifire snowmobile. I originally was going to make it more complicated then it needed to be, now I am planning on simply (not actually so simple) mounting the body of the mower on the tunnel of the Liquifire. I will be shortening the tunnel and cutting away most of the belly pan out front. It will use the same track, suspension (modified some), steering, handlebars, electrical system, clutching, and engine. This will be the fastest snowmobile - lawnmower in Cass County! My goal is to have it completed by winter and to be able to run it in show / rides like Ft. Ransom.

(edited after project completion)
Here is a picture of the final product and a digitally altered image that I got my inspiration from. Read on for more pictures and explanations of the project step by step  d.r.i.n.k.

Rupp..... I don't quite have THAT much time on my hands!

I will post pics after I take some tonight. I like before and after shots, but this one is going to be well photographed all the way through!
 If anyone that lives in the area or is just passing through ever feels like stopping to take a look, have a beer, or get greasy just give me a call, 701-866-9821. Nothing better than another mind to get ideas from!
