Mowzilla started out as a retired push mower with a broken drive wheel gearbox.
The mower was stripped of its engine, wheels, handle and gearbox.
The squared front end was chopped and reformed into a round front end to better accommodate swivel casters. Man, I love my welder!
Nothing a little bondo can't fix.
The steel has arrived.
Cutting the steel. Man, I love my band saw!
