Service Rack For Garden Tractors
The service rack is made from 2-in. steel tubing and channel iron. It consists of a 3-ft. wide, 6-ft. long rectangular frame mounted on four 26-in. high legs made out of 1 1/2 by 1/4-in. thick material. An expanded metal rack serves as the floor. A pair of 8-ft. long wooden ramps attach to one end and an 8-in. high metal bar acts as a "stop".
Two small wheels at the rear allow Conway to roll the service rack into his shop or outside to work on things.
The unit is painted black to keep it from rusting.
"I collect and restore Cub Cadet lawn and garden tractors, and I also repair lawn mowers for other people in my spare time. My service rack eliminates the need to bend over and crawl on the ground to work on lawn tractors. Makes it easier to service lawn mowers and other equipment, and also to overhaul engines," notes Conway.
