Those are the best ones to mod out- tear it apart n build it how y want it. Ones that are in great shape sometimes are hard to tear into ( least for me anyway).

i totally agree. when i got my craftsman, it was is great shape with a working mower deck. but i wanted a off road mower but it was hard to dig into something in such good condition.

Thats another reason why I didnt make a 4wd tractor. I have a Stiga Park. I bought it with a good 11hp engine for £40. Bargain. Didnt realise it had a deck though. Its more suited for my garden, my Rally is gonna go soon. If it hasnt have a deck I was gonna bang another trans in it Very Happy

don't be a baby jk lol!
I was going to buy a brand new craftsman to make into a racer but it would be a lot of money to blow when i could take half of that and make one of my old ones really modified like 4wd or something.

i joked with my wife about taking a brand new cub cadet zero turn lawntractor ( front engined ones) and make it a racer - i had considered actually going to the local cub dealer n buying a new hood to mount to my murray - just havent gotten around to it yet....

Na- i couldnt chop up a brand new tractor just to mod it- thats why i buy the junkers, even the incomplete ones( better for modding).

I wouldnt like to chop up a new tractor either, unless I had a hell of alot of money going spare. Most of my tractors I get a fix up and sell, some I keep. I really want to get some old ones though

I've looked at alot of the new tractors everywhere, and they all are thin metal and cheaply built. I'd rather fully restore an older one then buy a new overpriced pile of sheetmetal. So i'm not sure they'd be good for modding anyway.

Yeah, older stuff is built much better anyway. The only companies that seem to make tractors with any decent amount of strength is AYP, this was a few years ago, so I maybe wrong. I still really want an old tractor to works on, something around the 60's or 70's

Back north i nearly took every tractor i got running down in the mud behind the house - the toro was a lil beast in the mud , the dynamarks were also pretty good in the mud as well- craftsmans stock are allright ( till i blew the muffler apart on my 85- lost all power almost) - murrays are real decent, that agway has gone thru alot more then i expected , rarely getting stuck.

Those 90's widebody murray series would be ultimate for mudding/offroading/speed applications with the c channel frame ( like fearlessfronts) - im so pissed that i junked that one years ago. I have 3 right now, sometimes im tempted to mod the hydro- but its seriously cool to drive tho.

I would have liked a Murray. Would have saved me alot of work building mine from scratch. It was worth it though!
