The project started out life mowing our lawn for the last 25+ years. It became mine after my father bought a new mower.

It was very well taken care off was my grandparents for a long time then we bought their house and it and all the tools in the garage came with it.

I got a good deal on a 20hp Kohler twin cost me 20 dollars. So I removed the 11hp briggs and stratton and the v twin barely fits but I got it in.

that is a prime example of a tractor that I would feel bad destroying by modding it

It may look pretty but the transaxle, engine and clutch were pretty much shot after mowing for that long. The picture was also before my father shoved it outside for the winter a few years ago  Mad 


After getting a new four speed transaxle getting rid of the stupid vari-drive I built a six inch subframe.

I would try to make the front to where you can have 4 of the same size tires all around without it sitting off.

The front tires are Toro tires from a snow blower and they had holes drilled in them for lug nuts. The exhaust is 2 and a half inch pipe from my truck. I already went ahead and replace all the steering with stuff front a old Polaris snowmobile. I have 25's for the back already from the same fourwheeler but I'll get a picture of them after work.

Looks like you had fun none the less! Small stuff is a pain when you're having fun, understandable. I broke my shift linkage twice when i went to do some snow riding lol. Nothing like cruising in 3rd and then having to get off and get underneath it to back it up!

It was fun til every time I wanted to back up I had to hop off and dig in the mud to find the link on the transaxle but oh well. I want to hear what you guys think should I go with some AG tires bear claws or a swamp lite I can't decide.

If you guys get the hint
