My latest project, the old fashion two wheel tractor.

Built from a tiller. Its got a 6.5 hp motor with a 3 speed tranny (locked) and 22'' tires.

It is geared allitle to high right now... in low gear at about quarter throttle it does jogging speed lol.

Make a chariot style platform to stand that articulates off the tiller. Perfect for tiller racing! Lol

That's a good idea Redline.. I just might do that.

As for the build in the avatar picture, that build I stopped because I figured that since it was a tiller I could
use most of the original parts and only have to modify it alittle bit to turn it into a Two wheel tractor.

With the 22in cut turf tires, running almost 0psi and with the locked tranny this thing will go absolutely
anywhere. Im gonna be putting together a series of test and obstacles, and steep hill climbs to really put
this thing to the test. the frist offroad only two wheel tractor.

So I'm not trying to be rude or snarky or anything, but honestly what is the point of a two wheeled tractor? You can't really ride it, so what do you do with it?

Well im not exactly sure but they were made for gardening back around 1913 and been around ever since.
Its basically a little tractor, They are built to pull, tow, do garden work, and felid work. Pretty much everything
a tractor can do just on two wheel and a smaller set up and they were cheaper to buy than an actual tractor.

But the bad part about em is that they are walk behind lol.

there was a slot 1/2" in the back that held a 3/8" bar (to hold the tiller back) with little 10" wheels. it was angled down and forward from the mount, but I turned it around so it angeled backwards and if I leaned against the handlebars it would flex a bit and I could turn.

You should be able to find one, it would be great for mudding because you have the weight of the engine to help you dig.

no I bet the tines would help in mud/sand, unless you go at high speeds then I would remove them.

Build a snow plow and A set of wheels that attatch to the original spikes think that goes into the ground to hold the tiller back, and make it articulated. Then make a pedestal seat on top of those wheels to sit on, and turn it by pushing the handles like you normally do. But a snow and dirt plow would be sick, and should work well as the weight would be in the drive wheels!
