This is my first true lawnmower build. It was originally a Gilson mower, a 52113A 48707 model with a 8 hp 190707 Briggs and Stratton. It has a Peerless transaxle, haven't looked very closely at the model of that really. I pretty much re-did everything on it. New frame, clutch set up, moved the motor to the back for extra weight, and of course...Bigger/better tires.

Interesting set up. My guess is it would push pretty bad trying to corner without any weight on the front, but I bet it does a hell of a job going straight.

I bet not... If you look, he is sitting in front of the rear axle. Basically swapping engine weight for body weight. On advantage I see is set position is really low, and weight distributation is probably close to a stock mower. Long frame helps.

It may not be far off in handling compared to Jacob's RER

I missed that..... You're probably right on the handling.

Is it chain drive or are you using a belt?

Those are some extremely aggressive tires. What are they?

It does have bear claws on the back. And now the transaxle is shot because of quick shifting and gear grinding
