    Has anyone ever rigged their WB to do something other than cutting grass?

    I am thinking of rigging my 36inch JD to be a De-thatcher and Areator. (using the same equipment that a rider would use)

    Any pics would be great!!!!!!!!!1

    BushogBoy...looks like someone's tryin' to out-do ya! LOL

    Show that pic of the plow......

    I like the idea of tryin to get more uses out of a machine.... I had read somewhere that there was a snowblower on the market at one time for a WB.. but I don't know where/who makes it.

    I have seen blowers that mount in place of the deck, powered by a belt from the engine, like the mower deck.

    I use mine sometimes to push leaves into a pile. Also, to drag tarps.

    I use mine as dethacher with a jrco dethacher attached to the
    front works great.

    I have several older Gravely walk behinds that have a four-bolt hookup on the front of the machine for attaching snow blowers, tillers, mower decks, rotary plow (for digging holes to plant trees or shrubs). This is a great concept but not many manufactures do anything like this any more. These are not my daily mowers but my "special needs" machines.
