Shotgun Seat Converts Tractor Into "Showmobile"
"I have bone spurs in both of my legs so I ride it wherever I go. It saves a lot of walking for both me and my wife," says Bob Lamb, Greenfield, Ill., who modified an 8 hp Ariens garden tractor by mounting a "shotgun" seat on the hood. He often takes the tractor to fairs, festivals and similar events. "I can ride for hours on a gallon of gas."
  The seat bolts to the front frame and is made from sheet metal, with round tubing used as a platform for the rider's feet. The seat is hinged and can be flipped up for access to a wire basket. Before building the seat Lamb shortened the tractor's frame by 1 ft. so it would turn shorter.
  To move the tractor from place to place, Lamb built a small trailer that he pulls behind a car or pickup.
