Just for anything really because i dont have a four wheeler and all the trails i ride on are deep as shit! So i need a tow tractor for when i get stuck. I was gonna get a early 70s cub but when i got to the guys house he said that he wanted 150 for it and i said no and left

i wish i could find a cub for 150 lol around here there all 400-700 and if restored there more lol
only down falt i found with a garden tractor compared to a lwan tractor is there more heavy so they sink more and can get stuck faster

i would use a GT or lawn tractor with a v twin. there is a user on youtube IDK his user name, but he made one out of a lawn tractor. if you type tow tractor into the youtube search i think it will come up. the one problem with a tow tractor is you need sothing to weight the front cause it will wheelie if you dont.

My first offroad build started as a 80's agway - i like the tractor too much to hack it up for further mods, so when i got the chance to buy a 90's GT murray - I put the agway back to stock and eventually will build the GT up for trail/offroading , since it has 1" rear axle out of the trans and 1" front spindles .

Be a perfect machine for a 4x4 conversion eventually.... some year id like to build my craftsman GT6000 into a monster mud machine 4x4 - its on hold because theres really no mud around....
