Oops lol tried to climb a rock pile made it the first 2 times then flipped over backwards. the big dent in the hood is me booting the tractor over so it wouldn't land on me.
fiberglass has a few cracks which i can fix

Now that's a beefy looken Sears. I've heard mud lites are excellent for mud mowers. Quads on the other hand not that great. If I ever get my hands on a Sears mud lites are gonna have to go on it. There just mention be lol.

Ya forsure they are. In the mud there great. Plowing snow not so much. I put my old set on with chains. There are a little rough on the road but anything else your golden. Best thing I like about them is the stance the tractor stability is awesome.

I'm not sure if I want to use this engine in this tractor. There is going to be a few mods to make it fit and I like the look of the sears the way it is. But the other one i have i definitely wouldnt feel bad cutting up to make it fit

Would definitely have some guts if you did use that engine. Tractor looks good. Nifty exhaust system.

I'd love to do a new sears build.  I know I have 2 of them now, but one is a aged hydro, and I have some sentimental attachment to my ST.  2 into 1 build, or a couple builds?  :-)

What might be cool is a shaft drive conversion on a Sears…I’d really be interested in that thread! If you go that route I recommend a sunstrand hydro on a 2500, you get a top speed of 11 mph. That’s the end of my thread jack though lol

@Buck looking forward to seeing more!

@MightyRaze I am going to build one for mud and maybe the other for a buddy.

@Rustbucket Garage a drives haft mower would be neat forsure.

@Dr Bob thanks that it does, lol I just wish I had a heated garage. I sold all my extra engines and parts before I moved so now I have to start all over again 😥

I bought my first house and finally have a garage. Its huge, but no heater. Kerosene heaters, electric space heaters, and propane heaters. Gotta got warm up every so often with these Buffalo winters where I am or it gets COLD
