Thread: Hows This For Adapted Equipment!

    Hows This For Adapted Equipment!

    Hi All,

    I have not posted in a while as I have been a little busy! I am a C5/6 quad who can now plow snow, feed livestock, level/load dirt and bring up the winter wood. How? I'm glad you asked. I got sick of watching, so I bought a tractor and then designed and built a power wheelchair accessible cab for it. I can enter, operate and exit this 110 hp tractor 100% independantly.

    Check it out at: http://t-wt1.webs.com/

    Great. I could just watch on the family farm back in the 1950s. I know what motivated you to take on this project.
