Welcome! We all have to start somewhere. Have you got a tractor project on the go at the moment?

Potential possibility.....I posted questions I have concerning the project on a forum....it's a 2002 Troy Bilt with a 18 HP Briggs motor...it is hydrostatic....but just looking to make something fun for taking on some local trails, not a speed demon.....from what I understand, really can't do much to increase the speed regardless.

Welcome! I've been watching these talented people for a couple years and just dove in myself just a few months ago! It is fun stuff, parts can be pricey at times. Best words of wisdom when starting a new project, start with a cheap tractor so you have the money for mods and upgrades. Scraps are your friend! Be creative and anything can be used for something it wasn't originally intended. Always think safety first! Also, be cautious, these things are addicting!!!!

Along with what @mightyraze said, the tires will be the most expensive part if you're patient. If you keep an eye out for some that have been sitting a while, you can find whole tractors for free sometimes. @TheGreenHornet got his ranch king, dynamark, and cub cadet for free because he saw the weeds growing up around them and knocked on the door. Good luck with this tractor and have fun! I'm sure there will be more builds to come

Yeah I agree, decent off-road tyres will probably be the most expensive part of a build. And check your local scrap yard for bits and pieces, that's also useful. I would maybe suggest seeing if you could get a cheap (or free) donor tractor, because you'll often find that an 'un-loved' tractor is cheaper than a certain part you may need.

Speaking of free things...I just got a moped out of the dump with some nice hydraulic brakes, cvt, decent cvt belt, and efi. All the parts on it will probably used on my various mowers and some future projects. But I just saved about $125 in parts. Thats money that can be invested somewhere else, and I still have parts left over that I might use (but don't know about yet)! bounce

Even then, thats still the most expensive part. Engines, chassis, trannys, etc can all be found for free/cheap

Especially them old flathead briggs. they are common and reliable. I love them because they are so common, parts are ridiculously easy to find. You do not even have to look to find one around. Especially now that OHV engines control the market due to exhaust regulations and fuel regulations and all that Bullsheet. Find yourself one of them and a peerless(also very common) and you are set. And personally, i would look around for a peerless rear end. you can build yourself a dual pulley clutch like FearlessFront did and put a 5 speed under that TroyBilt. From riding on my uncle's, it seems to be a pretty solid machine.

Yep flathead Briggs engines are very cheap and plentiful. They are more economical compared with opposed twins. You could also put a Peerless in where the FNR is but keep the vari drive.
