This is gonna be my first build i am just gonna do something simple. We have a place up in Virginia (we live in N.C.) that is up a long muddy rutted out road that goes up the mountain to our cabin. I am just looking for ideas and do's and dont's for this machine. It has to have a fairly slow low end so i can pull a trailer loaded with blankets, food, tents, tools and stuff like that without throwing all the stuff off the trailer. It has to have good traction for the mud, ruts, and pulling a trailer loaded with enough equipment to last 6 people a few weeks. It has to have a nice quick top end (20 is plenty) for having fun and fooling around or mudding. Im just looking for ideas and i know yall got em. For the tires I was told to take a cheap old knife and a propane torch and cut some tread of the turf tires in an atv style pattern and then put slime tubes inside the tires. I havent got my tractor yet but i have adds posted on craigslist and i will start a build thred as soon as i know what im gonna do.
