How to find the real gross weight a plane can carry?

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Let's see..... Lawn Tractor = Ride able lawn cutting machine that has the engine front of rider


It will also have a PTO and hitch attachments for accosories other than a mower deck. Such as a tiller for the garden or a blade for clearing snow from the driveway.

Man you guys are tough! 8)

It is actually called a Rider and suits my ego quite well. Haven't had that much fun since I was sitting on an M-60 MBT.

Something that industrial looking is worthy of the word "Tractor".
