Hydraulically Powered 3-Wheeler
"Each of the two rear wheels is driven by hydraulic pumps powered by a 16-hp Briggs and Stratton engine. It boasts 500 lbs. of pull and a top speed of 30 mph," says Ernie Parker, Bloomington, Minn., who built a hydrostatic 3-wheeler.
"I have a 4-ft blade, held on with two pins, that can be put on for removing light snow from the driveway, or I can put on the rake attachment to clean up my lawn," says Parker.
"I like it because it sits low, and has a differential so I don't slide around corners. It features conventional type steering and a single foot pedal that controls both vehicle speed and forward and reverse."
