It might be ok if the transaxle has bearings installed, either internally or externally. Otherwise it would probably be pretty hard on the trans.

Well, how is it locked? The doc locker IMO is the "best" way, though not the easiest. Fozzy is definitely easiest, but I feel like thats hard on the gears. Maine Mud Mower filled the whole diff with molten zinc. And @Fearlessfront welded the spider gears to the shaft (the free spinning ones that share the shaft in the bull gear).

In order of strength (IMO):

1. Doc Locker
2. Solid zinc casting
3. Welding the spider gears to the pin
4. Fozzy locker

1 or 2 would be fine with those big tires, and number 3 would be ok if you're certain you got a good hot weld. But I wouldn't try it if you just fozzy locked it.

Fozzy lock works great from my experience. Less stress on the gears than welding the gears to the pin. Remember, these gears are sintered steel. In a Fozzy lock, the teeth are just stopped from rotating, where in a pin lock everything is trying to twist the gears off that pin. A lot more force is being applied that way.
