Has anyone seen or heard of this group. They're called Grassroots Electric Vehicles. If you look at this page www.grassrootsev.com/projects.htm you'll see that one of their current projects is an electric Dixie Chopper. What do you think of that? Not really much to tell from the website besides...

"We weld the children... no mommy no!" LOL
This is about the easist welding project to do. It comes in very handy when setting grade, or building a square. The rebar holds the string tight with its ribs. It's also very cheap. I was tired of always pounding a piece of wood in the hard Missouri ground. After a day of use they were trash. The...

Anyone ever had their old decks bead blasted? I decided to get mine done ,painted with epoxy paint and reweld everything.
Here is my 10 min turf stripper.
I was at the farm store and they had a brush hog shield for $24. I thought why not make a little stripe kit for my 36" exmark wb. It's kind of like a dixie unit. Not as many links drag.
Has anyone built a OCDC for their ZTR?
I would like to build two for our Cub tanks.
Hey any tips on vertical up mig welding? I did one today and it looked like that thing that hangs under a turkeys neck.
I need 100 2"x2"x2" triangle pieces (60deg all 3 corners), from 3/16" mild steel, to use as reinforcing gussets.
I don't have a shear that will handle 3/16" steel plate. Is this a job best sent to my local fabrication shop, or is there a (relatively) quick/easy way to do this in a home shop?
Heres a orginal manufactured unit I plan to make.
Again this pic is not my build but what I plan to build. I have 3/4 of the parts in hand, I have the frame done. Next is the brush to aquire and build the box, I hope to mount my blower this week.
The second project is a rake/grass picker...
I was just looking at the projects that "dhardin53" has made under his 1 project every year title. I am wondering if anyone has built a vacuum-type collector unit that works well on a Dixie? (for collecting leaves and clippings) If so, post some details of what you did and pictures if possible! ...

Does anyone here ever use your welding skills to make any type of artwork? The reason I'm asking is because I just got a new 110 MIG. I wanted for two reasons: 1. Shop use ( fixing things and making things for work) 2. To make things that are visually pleasing.
I have been into woodworking...

Has anyone got a blower rack they want to sell or fab.?I have an echo blower.
Anybody ever made and OCDC for a Gravely P160 or interested in taking on the task? I have looked at blade blocker and ez chute but neither seem to have one for my mower.

Looking for some prints for some sccessories for Dixe Choppers. Anyone ever seen any?
I have a 1986 model Miller Dialarc 250 and had to disconnect some of the wiring to clean up the inside. I should have taken a picture before I disconnected the wiring, but I did not and after cleaning it I lost reference to some of the connections. I have the wiring diagram, but it does not do...
