I work in a small engine shop and got a john deere sabre from a customer for free cause the wiring was all jacked up. Used it around the shop to move the trailers and mess around with doing wheelies and such.

Then decided to do a motor swap from the 15hp Briggs OHV to a 19.5hp Briggs Pancake

Got some bigger tires for the rear 22x11 Knobbys

Cut up the front axle so it would flex

This is with stock front tires

Test fit some bigger tires, gonna take a lot of trimming to make them work with no lift

Mounted the rear tires there tight

Next thing I need to do is extend the rear axle shafts and the front spindles to space the tires out. Weld a hitch on the back. Cant wait to ride it again specially after all this

Yeah from what I hear that hydrostatic transaxle is going to burn up, but it hasent yet. Ive pulled a 3/4ton suburban and a boat with that mower and it hasent died yet. Im just going to keep rocking it untill it does kick the bucket. When it does I have a locked up Peerless 820 for it.
