PostSubject: Murray Mud Mower   Mon Dec 05, 2011 5:10 pm

Hey everybody!! I recently got this tractor for $25! Not sure on the year, it has a 14 hp Briggs and Stratton, which is not the original. It has a gas pedal made out of a old bike break handle. It has a 6 speed peerless with a welded creeper gear in it with rims wrapped in big atv tires! It doesn't have a hood, but I would like to get one after I figure out the year and model. I may just part it out for my other tractors that don't run or fix it up and go mudding! Here are some pictures!! :thanku: Let me know what you think!!











I may put the parts on this! bounce

Your murray looked like my 80's agway :


Mines a 3 speed ( heavy duty trans- OEM) , originally came with a 10HP briggs - im building mine for offroad/trail use - still need a rack on the back , and other stuff including a 4x4 conversion in the future.

Those LTV craftsmans are pretty rare - ive been searching for one for a while now with no luck .

That's a sweet tractor!!! It looks really good!! Yeah this was my first time seeing a Ltv, the guy I bought it off of tore everything off that wasn't needed!! I wish it still had that stuff though because it's kinda rare! It needs a new pinion gear in the 2 speed rear end he ruined it because he didn't put the (I think) the set pin in right beacsue he rebuild it and put welds in it for posi! He claims when it drove it went 55+, not sure if that is true? So it was a race mower and now I might put all the parts on the Murray on to the craftsman! I'm thinking put the craftsman rear wheels from the back up to the front and the 6 speed peerless with the rims and atv tires in the back and put the motor from my Murray into my Wheel Horse B-115. Or idk.. lol!

If a tractor is modifed right - it can go pretty fast - i wouldnt be the one going 20 plus on that stock craftsman- i went 30 plus on my stock murray and almost crashed a few times - was way too unstable with stock hieght and drivetrain.

I just picked up a pair of 22x13.00 x9 wooly booger ATV rear wheels with rims for $25 at a flea market- combined with the pair of 9" atv wheels up front on the agway ( bot from nephew a while back) - it should dig nicely.
