Found this recently:

Looks like a pretty simple solution. I'm lucky enough to have a tractor with a dedicated brake pedal on the right, so I can just hook up a linkage and be done. It looks like it's simple push or pull operation. It works with this disk which is a 1" keyed bore (will be going on a Peerless 820):

This is going on a work tractor-10MPH would be crazy fast, so I think that even though these are meant for go-karts they'll work and last. I'm going to need two because I don't intend on locking the axle-it would tear up the grass too much. Any suggestions on how to actuate both at the same time? I was thinking of using a cable.
