Hey new to forum I have been playing with mowers for a while now so I have an arctic cat 250 atv and mtd mower and craftsman lt1000 I want to build something mean out of those but not sure what I want to do any ideas I thought about putting mower body on atv because wheelbases are bout the same size but not sure about how to do front end because handlebars would probably have to go thru hood what do you all think

Do what you want to do. If you wan you could swap in the engine, and rear swing arm/axle if the bike has a solid rear axle. It would be a lot of work. If you ask me I would just keep the 4 wheeler together and sell it if you don't want to ride it.

Just looking for ideas I don't care to do the work I have a few atvs and mowers these are just extras I'm going to build into something atv doesn't have swingarm or straight axle it's independent with cv axles I bought the atv for $100 and of course it needs work so I figured I'll make it into something else

I'd sell the ATV to have money to put in the mower. Either that or like others mentioned, part the ATV out, put what you want on the tractor, and sell the rest on ebay or something as parts. Also, don't get mad that we aren't replying right away, most people either have jobs or school and can't be online all the time.

I would use the atv to put suspension under the tractor, how is up to you. The steering and front end on tractors can always use some help when they are used for something besides mowing grass. I myself have been looking for a cheap donor atv to rob parts from. My plan was to use a chain drive rear axle and swing arm and drive it with a peerless 700.

How would you go about using axle and chain drive with peerless I have a little Chinese atv my daughter has outgrown I could yank chain drive swingarm axle etc off of it it would probably be better If I just robbed parts from it anyways will probably be easier to work with

ATV engine stuffed into the tractor. Leave stock appearing, but beef up the suspension and make a solid rear axle. Would be a pretty simple conversion with a clutch and everything already in the atv engine. All you've gotta do is chain it back to the rear and you've got a real death machine.

I'd try putting the rear suspension from the atv onto the Craftsman. I haven't seen that yet. What type of transmission does the atv have?

atv looks like this?

I thought bout stuffing the Chinese atv engine in it it's a 150 so it's probably small enough and has chain and straight axle and yes that's pretty much what the rear on my arctic cat looks like it's got a 5 speed semi automatic

The peerless 700 is for chain drive axles. My plan was to make the pivot for the swingarm a jackshaft, and run the 700 to it to drive the rear axle.
