Hello, I've been watching Fearlessfronts videos and I want to build myself a mower of my own. Can't wait to get started and learn from everyone!

Not yet, but I've been looking around. I've got a few questions if anyone could help. I know not to get a hydro but how do I tell? Should I just go for a decent cheap one or a certain brand, and how hard is it to lock it with a stick welder?

Welcome! You can tell if its hydro by if you see a FNR shift on it for one (Forward, Neutral Reverse) Any mower will work for a first time as long as it aint rusted out. Unless you like that lol. For my first and current mower just to learn, im taking it entirely apart cleaning up any rust, painting everything, reassembling and using it for mudding. Taking it slow and comprehending everything your doing helps. That is what im doing and ive picked up a decent amount of stuff.
Pictures help too, when you get it and start working on it, take pics of what your doing so you remember where things go. I also baggy and lable all the bolted and pieces to help stay organized and not be cluless. I also right down on em replace or broke 3 need 3 more on emif necessary. I hope this is a start to helping! As i said before, welcome to the forum!

Welcome and have fun hacking up stuff. Sure, you can use a stick welder to lock up your rear.

I locked my diff with an arc welder and it worked good, pick your power setting high enough so it melts the thicker metal.
