Hi alll
new to the forum and i just have one question. I have mid 90s craftsman that i bought for the motor (it will be used on another project) this left me a perfecly good mower chassis. i have an old 6hp motor from a pressure washer. is it worth throwing in the tractor? i want somthing that i can use to run through the bush no big rocks or anything to get over but there is some mud and a few good hills. i need it to haul about 100lbs of equipment and myself (250lbs) into the bush. Will this be enough hp or is it a waist of time. what size pully for the motor? the back will be stock i have a 5 inch kicking around that fits the motor

if i cant build this up for next to nothing i will probably scrap it.

thoughts?

If its a perfectly good chassis, id keep it till another motor comes along.

I have a 70 toro with a 5HP briggs on it- it hauled my 250lb bulk down down into the swamp and thru pretty good snow - im planning on putting a 6.5HP motor on a MTD wizard to use for a 'go kart' .


It might not be real fast, but it should get you around.
