I love it, finally get to see a 4wd. There's been a lot of talk about this, but seems like noone had the time, parts, and motivation to get it done. I look forward to seeing this one built.

shouldn't the front and rear axles turn opposite from each other when turning? Otherwise very cool!

Very cool indeed.
The front axle is facing backwards, what are your plans to run it in sync with the rear?

Youll have less issues mounting the front trans in the correct position - doesnt matter- the trans will still have to be run in reverse to go forward.

Ive seen this guy on YT do a 6x6 - he mounted the trans up front normal, ran shift linkages to the center of the tractor - one for the front- 2 for the rear .

I think he used a regular motor pulley - ran the front trans off the bottom and the rear off the top - you could make a stacked pulley of same sized pulleys- bolt or weld two together.

For the back, being lifted so high itd be best to add a piece of metal to raise the pulley into the chassis , and out of the way of debris/mud, ect. - front could be handled the same way.

Youll have tighter steering making the wheels turn opposite then the same direction- i have a 4ws 'normal' tractor that turns literally on a dime setup with opposite steer wheels.



Ive considered building a monster 4x4 tractor out of a 90's GT6000 ( no 4ws- too many points for breakage) using a horizontal shaft twin cylender, stock GT 6000 3speed hi/low trans and a 69 wheelhorse 3 speed hi/low trans up front - that way can have hi/low ranges ( mud /climbing), also the ability to run in 2 wheel drive with the use of a electric clutch ( for traveling) - right now i dont have the time or real reason to build one ( heck havent even finished my offroad agway yet - also planned on a 4x4 setup for that too) - im building a speed mod tractor first actually.

dangeroustoys56

if im thinking of the same thing it was smalltowntractors? with the yellow 6x6 and if that is him he never made it run in 6x6 it was only 6x4 or 4x6 he never hooked up the front axle if im not mistaken because he never showed it hooked up or anything.

and dont worry hes putting a bunch of cross bracing in it and hes gonna use a slotted belt with a tensioner on the twisted belt. its all going to be turcked up in the frame and he is going to make the front steering different from the rear so he can crab walk it hes using an electric actuater for the rear steering so he can turn it with a switch come on jame you gotta explain your stuff haha just a tip Smile

That will work. It may need a few guides, but that shouldn't be an issue. I've twisted belts when using my 2 wheelers to power other things before

This is exactly what I want to do, I have found one 4WS Lawn Tractor and im trying to get a price on the tractor(hopefully for cheap). and I would love to do that to my tractor, I like the idea of going all out and doing 4WD and 4WS:D

That is wicked awesome man! I've thought about doing a setup like that for years but can't find parts. I'm really curious now to see how yours will work out!!! Good job so far!

Damn, I have been away for way to long. There is a lot of new members and some great builds going on.



This 4x4 is just sick. I love it.

I would love to see some video of that thing in action. bounce

Do you have to use the stock transaxle with those U-Joints and inner/outer knuckles, or can you mount them to a diffrent transaxle? Anybody? And in my opinion if you drive the tractor in anything other than mudd or loose dirt I wouldnt weld the front axle. Would make it a PIA to turn.
