Chains For Garden Tractor Made Out Of Rubber Tires
I made "chains" for my garden tractor out of rubber tires. I just cut strips out of a car tire and bolted them to lengths of chain that wrap around the sides of the tire. The rubber strips are a couple inches wide and lay flat on the tire, giving you extra traction without ripping up the ground. Great on steep hillsides when mowing, and in winter for snow blowing.
  We also made "shop stools" out of old implement seats by mounting the seat on a 6 by 6-in. post that stands in the middle of an old auto wheel. We painted one green and yellow and the other red and white. (Lamar Fahnestock, 300 S. Ramona Rd., Lebanon, Penn. 17042)
