UNless you strip all the bodywork off, not really. The deck is the main thing to ditch when you want to save weight.

I agree- save the honda for mowing ( its too nice) and buy a beater tractor to mod.

If you need more traction with the honda- invest in chains or a set of AG tires .

Agreed! Use the honda as a recovery tractor. It's more fun to beat something you dont really care about. U can go more places.. lol

I like my 99 murray hydro - its different - sometime im going to use one of my spare decks and get that thing mowing , i suppose if it didnt, id be modding that thing out because of the c channel frame it has.

I like my 97/98 murray auto also, as a mower. It's nice not to have to shift from forward to reverse in the tight spots of my yard. Would never want one to mod for anything else though I don't think.

Well, id slap a manual trans on it IF it was ever modded- id save the hydro for another tractor. The motor would stay- a 17HP opposed twin Very Happy
