Garden Tractor Equipped With Welder
Jacob Martin, Waterloo, Ontario, replaced the original gas engine on his Massey Ferguson 16 hp tractor with a diesel engine and mounted a welder-generator on back of the tractor so he can make welding repairs on equipment right in the field and run power tools.
"It's a very handy rig, especially when a machine breaks down in the field. The engine came off a Kubota B 850 diesel tractor. I used the Kubota's hood, gauges, and muffler. The engine belt-drives a steel shaft that powers the welder-generator. I mounted a wooden rack on top of the generator which I use to store tools, jacks, chains, torches, and other equipment."
