ok, ive got this idea. what if you get a mower with a hyro in it, you put a massive lift like ffs, but you leave the hydro in place, put a sprocket on the right axle and run a chain down to the tires with a live axle. and gear the chain so it goes decently fast. then you will have an automatic mower, just push the old petals to go forward and backward

Might work, I would use both axles though to run a chain drive. Wont have a diff but be stronger.

yeah you would have to lock the diff or two chains, but would it work good or would we blow the tranny?

I think you would be fine as long as you used really good bearings and didnt gear it too high.

It would absolutely work

For how long is the ulitmate question.

Hydro systems don't like to be worked to hard, it bows seals, and overheats sytems.

Hydros aren't worthless. I'd love to have a couple.

It's a matter of application.

Some 34 years ago. I used to run a 444 Case Hydro. Had a 14 Kohler in it, Hydraulic Sleeve Hitch, Mechanial PTO clutch, And all the accessories.

It had A hydro tiller and I could do wheelies with that thing all day, Throw the deck on and I could do donuts in the grass.
It would top out around 15 Stock in High range,

I want one

A friend of mine has a mower with a hydro and we are lowering it and running a live axle with sprockets from each output on the hydro we are gonna put big sprockets on the hydro and small ones on the live axle and have a nice little gokart... also gonna hook the throttle up to the hydro peddle

I have no clue, but what I think is that all a hydro needs is 2200rpm and its good. If it gets more it will just be more heat but not more output speed or am I wrong? I've never ran mine, so lol

I got 12 mph out of my hydro when I pulley swapped. I had a 7" on the engine. Ran it with 20x10x8 cut turfs for a month or 2 without issues. Just make sure it's fan is on it. Mine cracked and fell off

What I would do it weld a rod directly off the input shaft and have it go
Up to the top of the frame and have supports and what not on it then put a sprocket up at the top
Of that shaft and a sprocket from on the motor then run a chain
