I've seen a few people put pull start on tractors. Is it possable to do this and ditch the starter, battery, solenoid, ...pretty much everything electrical?

I usually keep my harness, starter and battery and use the pull start when I need it but I'm to poor to buy battery's so I just pull start em, plus you get your work out lol

Ive put pull starts on mine but I left all of my electricals In place because sometimes the engine just won't fire up by pulling.

I was thinkin it would be a good weight saver and it would be less to worrie about in deep mud. I wasnt planning on doing it but it may be helpfull sometime in the future with a speed/mud mower.

You could, but I would leave them on. Its good to have some front end weight and 20lbs lighter wont make that much of a noticeable difference.
