Couple years ago in the swamp behind the folks place i burried my agway- the thick gooey muck mud ( its a heavy black soil that area farmers grow potatoes in) was too much for the stock tires on it after churning it up the day before .

Sunk right down to the footrests - i had to hop off and push it out- if i didnt have the stock motor pulley on and most the deck hardware on it- it mightve been easier to get it out.

yes yes, we have had more than our fair share of burrying our mowers up to the pack fenders in thick greesy mud and in the swampy never ending mud they arent fun to get unstuck, i personaly like the deep water wholes rather than the deep thick mud holes it sucks getting realy stuck and taking hours to get out of it

eventualy it will specially when its not sealed and the one bushing is rotted out like mine is, but if you seal the tranny and put some gear oil in it theres no need to worry

no problem so far i havent had any problems with water ruining the tranny, just beating them too hard and breaking and cracking them so you should be fine all the trannys ive had that ive popped open are full of mud greese, and water and they still work good

i cut the original shifter at the kidpoint of it and welded a piece of rod into it to etend it, but it is hadr to shift so if i was you, i assume you are using a craftsman? unbolt the plate that has the shift pattern on it and move it as far forward and redrill the holes and bolt it back down. this will give you more of an angle for the shifter and will be easier to shift

on my black one? yes its strong but pointer for that one weld you brackets for the traction bars as low on the axle as posible or when you go into a ditch the front axle will roll and break your shocks then you screwed and need towed home

as for the reasons i built mine haha, but honestly i think you should just drop down the front axle, no matter what im still gonna make the video for you but the suspension on my black on really doesnt work, it gives you a softer and bouncier ride and helps some but dont expect it to work like a truck or atv i will explain the reasons in the video i make
