Golf Cart Does The Job Of A 4-Wheeler
Who needs a 4-wheeler when you can have a tricked-out golf cart? Ed Stone, Richland, Mo., says he wouldn’t trade his golf cart for any ATV he’s seen.
“It’s hard to get on a 4-wheeler,” says the 80-year-old. “The golf cart has a nice seat, and I use it every day to do chores.”
He added a few extra features to make it work for hauling hay and feed to his goats, chickens and pets, and for carrying firewood and other uses.
“I’ve had it for about 7 years. It has a Yamaha engine, and I have done nothing with it except have the gear ratio changed for more pulling power and less speed,” he notes. It came with a lift kit. Combined with knobby tires, it gives him traction and better ground clearance so that he’s never gotten stuck in mud or snow.
“I put a 3,500-lb. winch on the front and use it all the time,” Stone says, noting he’s pulled trees, vehicles and machinery. “I’ve even pulled stumps with it. It’s a powerhouse with block and cable to increase the power.”
With a receiver hitch on the back, he can add ball or hook hitches to pull a trailer. It also works well to hold a cargo carrier that he fills with firewood.
His wife drives it for errands like getting the mail. Stone adds a protective canopy to protect from snow and wind in winter.        Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Edward Stone, 45 Sweet Water Valley Rd., Richland, Mo., 65556 (ph 417 286-3101).
