Merry christmas Mr Rod Father I think it will be in front of a zero turn like the 16 Horse on giant vac's. If it is a push type, it will be to heavy to push for hills or deeper grass.

I'll try to fnd out which motor. I would expect Honda given the small weight increase.

John, I used both my LW 10hp and the 13HP Force on a Blower Buggy off the back of my Gravely Z this fall. Talk about making life simple! (while increasing efficiency too)

Cool! Where are the pictures? I would LOVE to see how the bracket is mounted on the back of the mower. This would work well.
