Thanks for posting.
I have seen tracks when spraying weeds in grass.....with front mount. I just started with AL air injection nozzles and was very happy how it cuts down on drift. My first day was very windy and I never felt anything back on my arms. The only reason for going out on windy day was to test the nozzles. Keep us posted..

While this is a very nice Home build, My first reaction is don't Pop a wheelie. With all that weight behind the rear Wheels it would be real easy to pop a wheelie with out trying. Of course those older Tractors have Cast Iron engines and are build pretty heavy, so I could be wrong.

The tractor has a 70 lb. counter weight on front of it.

I can drive up the trailer ramp with a full tank with no problem.

She definitely had a severe "push" with a full tank before I added the weight though.
