And today I found a peace of sheet medal lying around so I bent it up to make a skid plate and painted it all up
LAWN RANGER craftsman mudmower CFF8B71F-81E0-499D-8D38-BDB9A4DB3A5C_zpsdzu1ktl3
The paint isn't dry yet but it's bed liner with flat black on top
LAWN RANGER craftsman mudmower 81C38F18-F8A5-42B1-BEEE-75309C8271C2_zpshqpnakol
I made it do some flexing on my old mud mower but I'm takeing all the part off it and putting them on this craftsman but as u can see the skid plate looks and works good

I like the skid plate. One on the transaxle would serve a better purpose though.

LAWN RANGER craftsman mudmower Img_1123
LAWN RANGER craftsman mudmower Img_1124

Those are the front tire version of the trail wolf. There is a difference between the fronts and backs. The backs would have lateral lugs (like most) for better traction while the front ones (yours) would be mainly for steering and light traction (like 4wd).

here's the first time I drove it and it was awesome
LAWN RANGER craftsman mudmower Img_1513
and I drove it for a while and went over bumps and a big hill and all of a sudden it stated smoking and shut off, so idid some research and found out the pcv breather was letting oil into the carb like fearlessfront murray so I fixed that problem heres some pics
LAWN RANGER craftsman mudmower Img_1610
LAWN RANGER craftsman mudmower Img_1611
as you can see where the muffler shot all the oil out onto my hood
LAWN RANGER craftsman mudmower Img_1612
and sadly it only has 3 inches of flex so im thinking about make it get more flex is that a good idea
