I added a large weight box to the back of my 317, and a custom ih plow on it, that was a fun build, but im currently build a snowmobile engine powered jd 212. Its almost mounted, and the engine if out of a 340 cyclone made by jd. The 317 is my go to machine it also has year round chains on a separate set of tires so switching to turfs is easy. it has the original kt17 s1. the entire drive train is stock, it just has a bunch of homemade attachments.

Too many to say!

Most of the engines are modified, from as little as a different head, to a long list of modifications, internal and external.

Most have tires larger than stock.

Mower decks have been modified for better performance by doubling up the number of blades on them.

Snowblower usually get overdriven.

Anything to things work better!

I once took the hydraulics out of an old Toro Parkmaster 7 gang reel mower that had very long hydraulic cylinders and made a log splitter. It worked very well. I'll try to find the pics

Craftsman re2000, first shot

I got in a car wreck last year that took me out of work. Bought a craftsman RE2000 on a whim and cleaned it up painted etc. Cleaned and sanded all the sheet metal, tore it down to the frame, implement primer, metallic blue panels, black on the plastics, Blue high temp on the engine covers with high temp metallic clear over that, gloss back engine bay, replaced most the wiring, half inch steel elbow and fittings for the exhaust to a briggs silencer.
