I have a john deere 170 named Oh Deere. 14hp Kawasaki 5sp gear drive. As you can see has been a used and abused plow pusher. It will be lowered and have a full suspension put on it, working on getting those parts now. I am looking to put a different motor on it and have some fun. Also have 3813 I will be entering as well. Best of luck to everyone and lets have some fun.

Wow, two 3813s in the buildoff this year! Not a super common tractor where I’m at, I’ve only seen two and one was a hydro. Good luck with both entries though!

That'll be really neat!  I love those John Deeres, and I love the four-wheeler inside a tractor builds!

Not sure what you are planning and that is OK, but be sure you keep within frame requirements. If you are just doing suspension from it, you should be OK.

Yup, gotta have some of that OG mower frame in there (or VERY close to OG).

When posting updates please try to not do so within minutes of each other. Use the edit function, or wait until you can make a larger post.

Also, your pics are huge, almost like they were artificially made larger. Try to keep them constricted to 800px width, theres an option if you use the button in the editor toolbar.

Suspension should be fine I would think. I was thinking of doing that on a build.
