Last summer I got it in my head to make a ZTR out of it. The hydro's / motors were about $3500 alone and I really didn't want to spend that much with another $2000 for incidentals. So, one day when riding my cycle, I ran across a 48" ZTR Snapper at Vaskies in Bancroft Ia. (which uses the same 'Wheel Motors' as their 72" does with a blown engine for $800). Perfect. (Chuck always takes care of me). This winter (2012-2013) I decided to mate the two units. I have a total of about $5500 and my time in a comparablele to a $18,000 mower. Plus, I had a great time building it.
All done now. Time to work on the Cycle to get ready for spring... ;-)
