hey guys. been off for a couple months now. i got a new tractor for free and have started making it into a mudder.

its a 04 husqvarna that has hydrostatic and it came with a 20 horse kohler. The kohler needed a carb and those are expensive so i swapped on a 12.5 horse briggs.

this is how it came stock

this is after i swapped the engine and put tires on it.

i brought it on a romp and climbed a fallen wood pile



i want to swap in a peerless at some point and i need to get a new belt


tell me what you guys think

Hydros aren't all that bad. Lol. You can pulley swap them on the engine. And the torque you can get outta them isn't bad. I have a Murray with a hydro I used to use to pull out other lowers with

Why didn't you sell it? No deck? Understandable. You should do a exhaust

Honestly, I would try to say that I would either sell or mow with a free mower that is that new...but that thing looks way too mean to pass up turning into a mudder! Interested to see how this turns out!

if i put the kohler back in i would need to put everything back where it was. i welded a new battery box where the gas tank was and put the tank up front.
what im going to do is swap in a different transaxle so it goes faster than 5 miles per hour.

because it doesnt just burn up unless you dont take care of it. it has good oil in it and the fan was on it to keep it cool. and i always washed it after to help keep it cool and clean.
