All that is involved is to cut, grind, weld.... prime and paint. Essentially, when it comes to the fixed idelr and the belt tensioner, move whats on the left to the right and the right to the left. I've done it, proving its not rocket science !

You can cut each side off and re-use the bulk of it. If I recall, you have to flip some of the angled components If your not into metal working, then its probably not a good idea because you'll have a useless bracket if you can't finish it.

If you do not have a second mule to go back to for measurements, take your time to get measurements angles and dimensions on paper before you start cutting.

I have not used mine for a while since I went to a different dedicated blower tractor, but its good to know its hanging there in the shed if I want to swap tractors.

Hey Doug, I know this a long way from Baltimore, but if his description is correct, it would be one heck of a deal.

Even if it cost Doug $200.00 to get that blower shipped, it would still be a bargain. If he could sell his blower for $300.00 to $350.00 locally, then the correct blower (in like new condition) would end up costing him the shipping fee. Normally, an SB48 will bring nearly $500.00 on e-Bay.

I remember last year our own Dave Bieter was selling one that had been converted to ingersoll rotation, I wonder if he has any pics of it or remembers anything of note regarding how it had been modified? Thing probably sold long ago, but my memory should be correct about him having one or selling one.

See the bold text children? That is from the fellow that built the 449 in his home- remember that gem? The CASE garden tractor that he somehow injected with both HGH and crystal meth?

Yeah. If he can do it anyone can! :sidelaugh:

DougA, what model casters do you have? Do you have any pictures? I have an L80 for sale, real clean one bought with the hopes of finding a snap fast conversion kit for the 195.
I don't know how good your fabrication skills are or what you own in the way of tools but if you want to mount that L80 on your 195, it's not as difficult as you might think.

First off.....the "KIT" does not give you spring-loaded pins. All it consists of are a pair of brackets that bolt to the frame rails of the 195 and support the lower part of the L-80's mule bracket. The brackets have a double offset in them to bring them closer together once they are below the frame rails.
