Yeah and with the double bevel gears and no reverse chain from the mst that used to be on the murray ,and being doc locked it might hold up ( hopefully) The mst gears are like twice as beefy as the stock 930 gears are.

It lives again! right now it only has shift before you go cause i havent rigged up the shifter yet but the tranny seems to do ok, it is a bit stiff but should free up after some riding. tires do well , one leaks so i need to tube it. The axle is a solid one with some of docs ideas but its more improved than his early design.



Made some heavy duty tranny braces that should not break

Those tranny brackets look like a good starting point for some kind of a skid plate.

Yeah i have wanted to put on a skid plate. The three link is working great, but not having ridden the murray for a couple weeks and having the craftsman running now i never realized how ruff and noisy it is.

Its frame has flex and is super light weight , the LT4000 is heavy, has no frame flex, and better seat springs lol

Seat springs keep your spine from braking, might wanna swap 'em.

I think the big front tires on your LT4000 help with ride quality a lot too. There's a lot of rubber there to soak up bumps and they look frickin cool too.

Here is the first part of the romp up to the part when the tree branch changed the camera angle to sky view.
Part 2.

And part 3, only issue was the belt fell off once after ramming a tree branch around the pulleys .

How did you get those tires onto the trailer?  They look like the stock front tires, been trying to do that myself.

This trailer had wider but smaller tires on it and had plenty of spare axle room for stock front mower tires.

Yeah we still work our off-roaders on a regular basis at the farm. Usually pulling gravity wagons, digging up the ground with a harrow, hauling scrap or timber away, fun stuff like that haha.

It's the not fun kind for life but it's fun to play in! Roads are pretty bad and dangerous here.
