Hey guys, I'm wondering, what do you think of a twin engine (two 6.5hp) 4X4 (two hydros) All terrain tractor cart? Any thoughts? I have all the parts set to go!

Sounds like a cool project, but a fabrication nightmare. Post plenty of pics Very Happy

Be interesting getting both engines to sync up right. Might want a tach for both so you can monitor it.

I was thinking I'd run one engine per transmission. (front & rear) That way they don't have to sync.

Youd have to have them synced, or youd burn one out because its trying to turn faster or slower than the other one. Not to mention it would be a royal pain.

So it would steer like a CAT front end loader? Someone else thought of this too. I saw it

There was an idea hopping around a while back to put tank treads on a mower and give it basicly a zero turn's method for steering.
