Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 B7C84097-3606-4D25-A4AF-EA5264405629
Fitted bigger tyres today.  Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 AAE1523E-85B1-4B79-9FE5-91352E160F3B
Very happy with the new look and capability.  Taller so more top speed.  Wider so bigger footprint with much better grip on loose ground.  The narrower tyres tended to dig down not forward. Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 A2426E78-CADA-4E43-8819-223D5DB41D07
Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 86AE2D87-FD95-4B44-B92C-7055B91DDA59

Tyres are 26x12.00-12 BKT TR315 TL 4 ply
Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 9E2BFBD7-A246-4F69-A66A-133541D445F4

Rear end is lifted up now, better ground clearance and more level looking.  Very happy with the new tyres.

Been messing with my phone to film,edit and upload a quick romparound video now the project is pretty much finished.  A pin with R clip to restrain the hood for safety purposes as per ATLTF build off rules and that's about it I reckon.
Let me know what u think.
The factory brakes are excellent so stuck with that.  Rear is unlocked still and I've not got stuck yet because of it.  If all else fails, set it running in low range first, jump off and lift the towball or front bumper to help it climb out of trouble scratch
& I like how the front bumper looks like a grumpy lower lip lol!

Never seen a powered bagger like that. Now I NEED one lol.

Looks like your hitch is too high for it!

Yes my hitch is too darn high, had to take the roller off or the brushes were up in mid air scratch  full of wet leaves and moss it drags its rear end along in a most undignified manner, but it's still super effective  bounce
My brother built this contraption for a much lower hitch many moons ago. I've dragged it out into the daylight after ten years disuse under a tarp in a field so rusty and cobwebby and the 5hp Briggs was a smoker already and a beach to start especially as the whole brush mech has to turn with the engine all the time. Refinement needed  Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 2240318088
The basic idea is sound so I'm thinking to build me a better one with an on off clutch of some sort, matching hitch height etc.  It will be glorious. Yeeha Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 1098998679

Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 363DDA6F-6E95-450B-80A5-4B2ED5B4DBBD
Simple R-clip to secure the hood as per build off rules.  Hoods popping open during over zealous romping always looks like decapitation in progress affraid
So with that detail sorted out I think my Roper Romper can now be declared finished Yay Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 2240318088
Meanwhile here's a quick vid of my project with close ups of the 'Pull To Stop' and the foot throttle which has worked out well ~ it's based around a steel tube sleeved onto the bar that supports the foot board.  This could be done on any of the Sears Suburbans/Customs Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 102878487
Very happy with the finished tractor. Like many others I can blame Fearlessfront for a lot of aspects then I found my way to ATLTF via finding Mr Modified's Baja Sears on YouTube.  Thanks 4 the inspiration  bounce
I fancied a tiny 'go anywhere' tractor and now I have one  Tractorhead's Roper Romper [2016 Build-Off Finalist]  - Page 3 1098998679

A nice, clean build. The chocolate brown is a classic colour choice. Well done!
