Hey I've been having some fun in the shop this winter and was thinking of how invaluable my little welder has been for my business, mostly because it keeps me from hanging around the house and bugging my wife all winter. I thought I'd post some pics of some of the more useful things I've built for the mowing rig. All these are easy things, I don't have any fancy tools, just a grinder. Here is a spring loaded trimmer rack Sorry the picture isn't very good An easy gate assist, for about $20 at HD (my spring assisted 'gate weight' is about 10 lbs) We always carry full bags through gates on the deck (who wants to carry a 60# bag to the truck?)but they would fall off or roll into the exhuast so I built these brackets. The exhaust bracket is attatched to the catcher plate so if we are not bagging it's not there. The bottom bracket is hinged so it just flips up when changing blades or working on the deck. Here's a real easy way to secure a ZTR or WB. The hinge just flips over the front caster, it's just a bent piece of 3/8 roll bent and welded to a hinge. Line spool holder I also build my own sulkies 6 gal electric sprayer w/20' hose I'm sure there are people here who are better fabricators but I have found all these little things very helpful, Plus I have a nice side deal building custom benches in the winter & I build my own spray equipment.
