    Has anyone ever tried modifying either a mid-mount or front mounted mower to attach to the back of their tractor?

    I haven't seen it done, but I imagine that a front mounted deck would be a really good candidate. I would think all that really would have to be done is to remove the mounting arms, unbolt and reverse the mounting arm brackets on the deck, and build a drawbar out of flat steel that connects to the reversed brackets. You'd have to extend the PTO to the back of the tractor, but that would be pretty simple.

    Well, we are working on this right now...modifying our mid-mount to a tow behind, so will post pics when finished. It was this or buy a pull behind gas powered mower and we just couldn't see doing that.

    Last attempt to post a pic until I get some advice. The process seems simple enough but it doesn't seem to work...

    Yeah, the picture worked! It has taken me awhile to even take a picture as I have just been mowing away! Picture is attached to previous post...a couple of times. I didn't dare modify since I had a hard time getting it to attach. Anyway, the mower works fantastic. Seems easier on the tractor too. Just love it. Now I need to paint it.
