PostSubject: MTD Rasentrac B10 Garden and Offroad Mower    Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:17 am

Well, here goes Part 2 of my MTD build!

I thought a long time, if I should make a new thread of it, but decided, YES!
Well, I'm kinda struggling with myself the last months, and have a not so nice time, ..............
BUT back to Topic!

MTD will get some changes!
Since I have the crappy parts mower, the MST 206 outta a Murray Widebody that's currently into MTD has to go!
I will store the MST and swap the 5 speed Spicer into the MTD. It gets oil filled.
Another change of MTD is that I will buy a new Battery for it and swap the shrouds back, so it has the stock shroud with no pull starter again.
The Snow Plow I have will still get rebuilt and mounted!
Might get some better rear tires or keep it on turfs!
And the MTD sadly has to GO in spring or summer since I have way too much rigs!

here's the old Thread:
http://www.atltf.com/t5685-mtd-rasentrac-b10-garden-and-offroad-mower-2018-build-off-entry

and here are some pics of the MTD from the past days:
I ripped it through the snow and kinda abused it! Tried drifting on the road and almost flipped it several times....





The drifting fun actually kinda brought me back, cuz I was just 95% before of deciding to QUIT MOWER MODDING!!!
so.... HERE WE GO AGAIN!!!

good luck with your build. so the reason why you are changing the engine shroud is when you and sell it?

Plans for the MTD sound good. Pull starts are always handy on a mower, and they're pretty rare on Briggs singles. You should get a decent price when you come to sell it.

Sounds like a plan. Switching out the transaxles is a good idea. Whoever buys it will probably only cut the grass and plow with it, which is all light duty work. I have a Foote 5 speed in mine and still is in working order with the vari drive setup, and I was pulling cars and a van around the yard with it last summer.

Should get a great price for it, since everything is rebuilt and in working order.

I thought all mowers were stupid expensive down there. I think you’ll make out fine with a machine in that type of condition

Yah, and with the extra gearing in it, one would think that it would be worth more also.

yeah, the Spicer will do the Job in it, and prolly the varidrive slips before too much torque cracks something inside the trans.

I have over 1k now in that rig, and prolly end up with a 0 Profit sale, or just minimal Profit, but lets hope for the best!

yep, the 5 speed ,,Hi-Lo" should help with the price a lot since that's the neatest feature on it IMO

Decided to take a walk through the 16" of snow here to my outdoor storage area, to look how btlf the snowy mowers will look...







once the snow is gone, I will start pulling the junk mower apart, and storing the Dynamark frame and some parts inside (need to build a shelf first)

only 1 Mower drives rn (MTD) and I ripped it on the road when it was 1" of snow on there and drifted it and crashed multiple times into the snow banks on the sides. Hopefully the Widebody is done til next winter so I can rip a real offroad mower in the snow. Turfs dig in after 1feet of driving in the snow.
