Interesting contraption on CL, Green Bay, WI

In my never ending quest to find stuff, err wasting of time as my wife would say, I ran across this adaptation of a utility vehicle adapted from an Ariens snowblower tractor mated to a Honda engine.

Honda 5 HP Excellent Condition... Made to Pull Trailers etc...

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Think that was a tiller?

Here is another item to file under CL contraption.

Well, those were interesting.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Yep, you are correct dbert. It was a tiller and not a snowblower. Guess I didn't look at it close enough the first time around.

I have heard of people using old snowblower tractors as "airplane tugs"..to move small planes around at airports:



also, modified garden tractors!





But how do they steer with the front wheels gone?
and why are the front wheels removed anyway?
obviously there is a reason for it, but I dont know what that reason is..

LOl - yep - waste of a good old tiller though! It's worth thte price of admission for that Honda though...... gotta like that. I guess you could use that thing to tote your garbage cans out to the road if you live out in the sticks! ;>P

Hopefully the Ariens tiller gearbox went out and they chose to make the puller.

I think I'd find a way to flip the handles so it would follow me in forward. As is looks like you have to stand next to the trailer when you're operating it ??

Unless you sit or stand IN the trailer


.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
