    Possibly looking for a walk behind velocity deck. I don't really need the rest of the machine. Just from the deck forward. I was thinking about cross breading it with a turf tracer drive end and controls.

    Not looking to spend a lot, but thought it would make for a good project for me and my son as well as a good thread here if I could actually get it to work.

    Would also consider a machine with running engine as I don't have one right now. Let me know what you have. Thanks

    Man I hope you find one. I would love to see that, you would have the ultimate WB!

    That would be the goal. It would be a fixed deck version to start as I think the cross bread would be easiest. The next step would be to see if I could create a floating deck version. That would be really cool.

    Subscribed.... I am a Scagenstein owner... Not a cross bread though.... You know, the new Scag controls are pretty nifty.... Granted, the swzt does not come with a velocity...... yet.......

    Well I sold the exmark parts machine however I still have a spare ecs control tower minus the operater presence part. So this won't be as easy as it would just putting the two halves together. I wouldn't mind seeing if I could find a working walk behind still. I could try and simply retro fit the controls on to it.
