Workshop and D I Ys Ours / friends - rockyone
The mowing machine I designed and built way back when we lived on our five acre block just south of Brisbane in Queensland, I went to night college for 22 nights, one night a week to learn about fluid power (hydraulic etc) to make the mower. A neighbour gave me a Mazda 4cyl engine, gearbox, wheels etc out of a fishing car that had a rusted body.The engine drives the Charlyn hydraulic pump which pushes the fluid through the forward, reverse, neutral spool valve control and then into the hydraulic motor hooked directly to the Mazda diff.I built the three spindle mowing deck and made the bullet proof spindle tubes out of heavy scaffolding type pipe lathed out for one bearing at the top and two at the bottom working shock end. Worked fine.
