PostSubject: The Behemoth Widebody !!!PICTURE HEAVY!!!   Mon Mar 02, 2015 8:31 pm

This is my friend's mower (he's 10) and he wanted it to be built by me and MurrayMayhem (not the Alabama one). So it sat in his yard for a year with no axle until recently he bought my 820. MurrayMayhem drug it to my house two days ago and we started working on it. It had no belt system what so ever, no useful wiring, it was lacking the steering wheel and gear, no paint, we didn't have the rear tires, and the body was completely removed and in a pile. We started by stealing a clutch from Murray's old widebody and attached it, next we found a belt and put on tensioner pulleys. We ended up spending an hour or two total installing belt retainers. It is wired with a push button and a headlight switch as the kill switch. The mower is driven by a 16.5 horse power Briggs oppy, a 5/8th kevlar belt, and of course a locked Peerless 820. The tires that are on the mower in the pictures are mine, the kids tires are locked in a shed and he's been at his mom's house so we cant get them out. After this is built and fairly reliable Murray and I are going to finish my Ford, then one of Murray's projects so we can finally have a big mower romp here in Central Florida this Summer.

Yes it is stock now since the belt was pretty bad when we first put it on, then it broke. We found another belt and had to disassemble the belt system and put a Kohler twin on it we had that was sitting on it's side. we have to finish the new exhaust and weld on the bumpers we made and she'll be done!

I like it! Those Firestone ag's are expensive tires to purchase new. Is the transaxle designed for 5 lug wheels, or did you modify them to fit?

Its my 820 I used to have with Murray's 820 axle shafts that I locked. The kid we're building it for has the same type of tires that are in the front for the rear, he just needs to buy some 4 lug hubs.

Alright guys, this mower now runs and drives. It has a top speed of 25 mph and does darn good wheelies. I will edit all the build videos and ride videos within the next month and post it to YouTube and a link here.
