    That is really a great idea there. I almost purchased a Ferris hydro walk but ended up not going that route because of the hydro setup.

    If someone were to do the mods you did what would do you think something like that would cost?

    That's a good question. If you can get the hubs off without destroying them like I did then it would be around $175 for the parts. I'd have to ask Troy how much the labor would be to clearance everything, move the hubs and make the mounting bracket.

    bump... hey Richard, did you ever find out how much something like this would cost? I have a 32" ferris and the single hydro is a pain in the ***

    Nice job Richard. I love to work in my shop. Built my own race cars. Built the tube frames, cut the rear ends down, engines you name it.
    I love to try and make things better or try to. All my friends stop by when I get something new and want to know what is not built right with it and what I am going to change. Got a Snapper 21 right now that I swear a 5th grader designed and cant believe they put it out like that.
    Keep up the good work.
