Just a quick video of my 16 year old daughter riding my Bolens H14. She was born with a disability called spina bifida that doesn't allow her the use of her legs, so I adapted the hydro foot peddle so that she could drive it. She is looking forward to getting her driver's license as soon as she gets assessed from the ministry of transportation.:rocker2:

Haha, putting her to work already :thumbs: Cool thing is it looks like most of your lot is level so that will make it great for her to mow.

I am curious to know how you setup the controls.

It wasn't anything special I just used a bungee cord and a trailer block and strapped her in. She can use her hips to push if her feet are secure.

Great video. I'm happy for you both that you could do this for her. Now you'll need a pry bar to get her off. LOL.

That was great. She sure looks like she is enjoying being allowed to take dads tractor out all by her self.
Thank you for sharing the video.

Hats off to you, for giving her the opportunity to enjoy what she otherwise might not
be able to.
She sure looks she was enjoying it, so you better keep extra gas on hand.
Hope she does well with the test.
