Bunton walk behind snow plow.

This is an older Bunton 48 hydrostat mower that I bought to make a custom snow plow. I removed the deck and started with a frame that had hydro's and wheel motors. I bought a rider mower with a bad transmission and used the engine, engine pulley, exhaust and wiring harness for the plow. It is a 13hp Tecumseh Enduro I/C electric start engine. I mounted a battery tray with a new battery, battery hold down and new bolts. I put conveluted tubing on all wiring. I put on new Snow Hog tires and lugnuts. Had a welder make custom C channel steel frame that is removable with 6 new bolts. It was then welded to a 42 inch snow blade that is spring loaded from a rider tractor. I had a round bar welded onto the front of the plow bracket so I could use 4 old style plastic 15lbs sand weights and a weight bench collar to hold them in place. It is balanced very nice! I made a new control panel and kick panel out of diamond tread and mounted a new light switch, choke cable, and throttle cable and ignition. I changed the hydro fluid and installed a new Wix oil filter and changed the engine oil. I put on new grips and installed a moveable light. Finally painted it all with a fresh coat of paint.
