Welcome to the forum! My group used to run a Murray pretty close to that one.... those frames are practically indestructible!

I like the Murray! I think we're all far from being "done" with these tractors. The journey is half the fun though. Keep posting updates as you go. And welcome to the forum!  Cool

Awesome little trackta! Have you done a pulley swap yet? I love the tail lights. I'm planning on doing the same to my murray. You might want to look at your wiring though. Looks like the wires are a little close to the rear tires!  Shocked Cool

Thanks I do plan to tuck those wires and its got a 5 or 5.5 inch pulley on the back idk what the front one is but its slightly bigger than stock. I would say it can do 8-10 mph. im also going to put a 1 inch lift on it so itll be out of use for awhile.
