We built a 4x4 tractor out of a john deere 420. It had a front loader on it. The easiest way to do it is to use a hydraulic driven front end. Run a hydraulic pump off of the PTO. We could pick up over 500 lbs easily and the front end would always turn with plenty of power.

Do you have to use the stock transaxle with those U-Joints and inner/outer knuckles, or can you mount them to a diffrent transaxle?  Anybody?  And in my opinion if you drive the tractor in anything other than mudd or loose dirt I wouldnt weld the front axle.  Would make it a PIA to turn.

You could potentially use a different transaxle with the outer knuckles, but you would need the splined axles from the original and the steering mechanism would have to be "re-engineered", because it mounts through a hole in the back of the transaxle. Non-steering transaxles don't have this hole.

I've been thinking about this because I may want to use two hydro transaxles instead of the gears. I have not done much more than take apart the transaxles on my project, so there's no threads. I likely won't get moving on it until the end of the year. So busy right now...

He's spinning the pulley counterclockwise (looking down at it). It will operate normally; 6 forward, 1 reverse.
