Either shaft driven or a belt with a bunch of guides so it doesn't fall off. Just looks like a swing arm

Should be fairly easy with a belt. Just look at a mower deck you can lift it up and down. And it can float over terrain. All while its running. At least 4 or5 inches.

My dad sells those tractors. Very comfortable to ride on when mowing for hours. Trust me. lol

It is basically a swing arm. You can see it all on their website at www.simplicitymfg.com

They also have fabricated mowing decks instead of stamped ones. Really tough reliable tractors, not like all this half-plastic stuff.

its so simple its stupidly hard. all it is is a swing arm on a normal trans. the belt would be just fine. simplicity has made tractors that articulate in the rear and the belts have no problem with falling off. you could do that for cheep with the northers tools shocks

Looks like a telescoping input shaft to the transaxle with spring loaded mounts?
