G'day guys,
Just thought i'd show yous a picture of my lawn tractor i got, and that i hope to do up for soem more offroad work.

Trying to get bigger wheels and tyres for it...but having difficulties

How it was when i first got it...

My rover rancher2 DSC01418-1

Quickly removed deck for some clearance

My rover rancher2 DSC01432

Needs bigger, grippier tyres urgently.
Currently only has turf tyres all round...with the front being a measly 6''x4.10'' Sad
And rears are a tiny bit better...8''x6'' i think.
Trying to locate bigger wheels so i can fit some A/T tyres

Those things are awesome. Ive seen one before (you probably have seen it) that had an opposed twin squeezed into it. It definatly looks heavy duty! Should be great for modifying. You should be able to get ATV tyres to fit those rims you have. Unfortunatly Ive never seen one of those in person so I cant really help too much right now. Looks like you may need to modify the fenders for bigger back wheels though?

Cant wait to see more! And welcome aboard too!

Wow- never seen one like that . Id do mods to it that can be reversed , keep all the stock parts in case y ever want to go original and or restore it down the road.

Id find a bolt on way to raise the tractor- front n back to fit larger wheels, so y dont have to chop up those fenders ( or raise the fenders with spacers) .

I love the way everything just opens up so you can work on it. Might do something like that with my tractor. Would make trail repairs easier.

Great looking tractor cant wait to see what you do with it.

It wouldn't take much to make that thing awsome! It's got all the right stuff! It looks really long.

G'day guys Smile

Nothing as yet mate in updates to take pictures of.
Gradually cleaning up to re-paint when time persists...

Chasing some new front wheels, or even some rears if i'm lucky enough.

So i can fit some heavier tread, looking at a ag-type arrow tread.

Currently setting up a trailer to hitch up to for use around the yard. Earth and garden material hauling mainly.

Also thinking of making slight U-blade for the front for shits and giggles...providing i can easily remove it for offroad work Smile

Gradually tearing down the rancher to give it a good clean up and begin the modding. Still chasing front wheels Sad

Mods so far, new seat or re-vamp the old one, bigger tires, tweak the exhaust a little, hopefully work out a way to reverse the cluth set-up. As standard (how it is now) it is opposite to how most are, this one you have to depress the clutch to put tension on the belt to drive...where as i want it like a proper setup so you depress the clutch to cancel the drive.

Couple pics for you of the teardown

Hey - mount those wheels sitting on top of the cart in the background- be some serious clearance there- plus some cool rims.

3 pulleys one shaft, middle pulley (where belt is) is from engine to give drive to, bottom pulley for cutting deck, and top (small) pulley to bottom of gearbox (720 peerless)

Haha, think the wheels on trailer are a little big, there my spares for the ute Smile
