I would have pipes out the back personally, but that's just me. Otherwise, I love the plan!

Hmm, number 6 on the list kinda jumped out at me. Haha.

Are you gonna be doing solid axle or independent?

It would work I suppose, but I bet it'd wear out pretty fast and be a pretty loose setup causing steering slop and what not.

Probably be better off fabbing up a nice multi-link setup. It'd be much more reliable.

I agree doing that isn't going to last.  I think the axle would flop back and forth some.

have you thought about using a leaf spring? something off a small trailer or older snowmobile, you could mount them in either a transverse style or 2 parallel like on a truck, they would give you plenty of flex and still keep the axle solidly mounted, you could even use the shocks from that scooter on it maybe take off the springs if they have them, otherwise would probably be to stiff, and you shouldn't need to mod the steering much if at all.

good idea
it just seems like the easiest solution to what you want to do, leaf springs have been on everything with a solid axle ever build, from horse drawn buggies to high power 4x4s and dragsters, and if it's to stiff you can remove some of the leaves to soften them up, the only mods you might have to make is lengthening you frame for the front mounts of the leaf spring if you use a parallel set, if you choose a transverse leaf look up the ford model T, it used one and it worked great.

That frame is not sturdy enough to handle a plow, especially if you give it traction

I plowed snow with my MTD a long long time ago with weight on the rear and it plowed quite a bit. Never hurt the frame, so I'm sure he'll be fine.

All the treads are pretty dead right now.  Plenty of time between now and Nov 30th.  New build-off info will be uploaded Friday  "Eastern Time- US" sometime.

Good luck man!

@SebastianAlbrechtJust some words of advice here.  Build a tractor for YOU.  Build a tractor the way you want and can reasonably do with your parts, skills, and money.  Don't just build something because it's popular or other people are telling you to do it that way because your heart won't be in it.  I love Ol' Red.  I didn't start building it because of some specific internet video.  I instantly fell in love with it at the scrap yard and I've been building it to my own vision with the support and guidance of ATLTF members.  What kind of tractor do you dream of having?  Maybe you're murray could turn into that.

Those are some VERY GOOD words of wisdom.  Also, if you try to build what others like.... you will burn out faster and will just walk away.  We like having you around.
