Deere Garden Tractor Converted Into "Chariot"
"My 5-year-old grandson Dylan has a lot of fun riding it in parades at local antique tractor shows," says Gary Lindstrom, North Branch, Minn., who converted an early 1970's Deere 112 garden tractor into a "chariot".
    He removed the engine and front axle, then cut off the tractor's frame just ahead of the steering column, keeping the steering wheel and steering column. A tongue made from 2-in. tubing runs back to the rear axle and has a ball hitch on front of it, allowing the tongue to swivel when turning.
    "It's a lot of fun to drive in parades. At one show last summer my grand daughter Sabrina Martin drove the lead garden tractor, a Deere model 70, while Dylan ride on the chariot. When people see them coming, they often give them high fives or a big thumbs up," notes Gary.
