Some of you may have spotted the Lawn Ranger before on here or my YouTube channel, I figured since I do a lot of screwing around on it I may as well have a thread for it here. I will do some “build” updates on it too as I do them.

Here it was right after I got it back in last July. You can see how small it is compared to mutt

Got some 18” ag tires shortly after

Most work I’ve ever done to it is fix the transmission a little. It would fall into 2nd gear or fall out of 3rd, and sometimes get stuck between 1/R and 2/3. Made it a little tricky to drive. Turns out one of the roll pins on the shift shafts was broken, leaving the fork floating on the shaft with no detent. A fresh roll pin and she was good as new.

Flipped the pinions for no more one wheel peel (or turning random directions in a wheelie). This isn’t really strong enough for a full size tractor, but fine for this 200lb backflip machine.

Gonna do some work to the clutch soon. Here’s some videos!

Something different I’m trying on the lawn ranger. Double bearing 3D printed idler. Why? Why not? lol!

New idler pulley, about a 3.5”

Made a wire belt guide out of the stand from a corrugated roadside sign I stole. Seems to work good

Made up a rear belt guide. More sign post wire.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9018

This is the end I finished at. I cheated and bent an eye on the end and then looped it back around to the hole I drilled and tapped.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9012

Tacked this support on just ahead of the trans pulley. More of the same material.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9013

Just a plain straight one to support the belt going to the engine pulley, not necessary really but why not?
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9017

Went and found these knobby tires for pretty cheap. 18x9.50-8. Should be a nicer ride than the ags.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9014

Then I immediately spun a valve stem off a tube.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9016

Luckily I had a spare tube out of a wheel horse front tire. Went ahead and pulled out a  @donaldcon trick and self tappered through the rim into the bead. Hopefully I won’t have any tire problems now. And yes I know- kinda jank. But these rims are no good for tubeless use anyway.

Made a rear bumper to save the fender from being ripped off when you stand the tractor up at speed. Aught to be plenty sturdy lol.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9110

Ordered some 4.80-8 knobbies on 4lug rims. Will be neat to have matching tires all around. Planning on making my own bearing hubs for the 4 on 4 rims

Ok, so maybe the 16s are a little big.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9113

But they’re not bigger than the rears, so that’s good enough for me!
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9114
Cute spindles, but unfortunately they’re too tall to keep the stock height.  
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9210

At this point is where things sort of got out of hand and I forgot I’m building for a 250lb tractor and not a 650lb one.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9211

But gosh dang I hope I don’t ever break em lol!
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9212

Gonna pick up some bolts to use as spindles tomorrow, as well as a nice front axle pivot bolt to get rid of the stock pin.

Amazing work as always Rich.  Curious, steel is expensive.  Where do you score your loot?

Working in a machine shop, I generally get my hands on any scrap I think I can make something out of. I do buy new sometimes though, my local supplier is super cheap as they order a huge volume of steel from their supplier and don’t throw on much of a markup. It also helps to be friendly with the folks at your local metal shops, they’re usually pretty generous with their scrap.

It’s a 42” wheelbase and 31” width, thing will fit in a standard door lol. And just a regular old predator 212 with a hand throttle, no need for a gas pedal as you can do all the work with the clutch Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  2731072446

I guess you have something else worked out? Or you just wanted to break it?

Oh I’m just gonna put another 3D printed pulley on it. The one I broke really wasn’t worn much so I think it’s worth continuing with those for now.

Got the spindles welded on. All I have left on the knuckles is to weld the tie rod arms on, I suppose.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9214

Got the first lathe op done on the hubs. Have material cut for the flanges as well, those will just be a mill job til I weld them on the center section.

Cut the flanges and fixtured up the hubs to make a nice straight weldment.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9217

After I welded them I got a chance to use this big bullnose center I bought a while back, truing up the hub flange on the lathe. You’d be amazed how welds will pull thick metal (3/8” here) and warp it like a potato chip. These did clean up within .02” though, so not too bad.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9215

I still have to finish one bearing bore on each (left the weld side of the hub undersize so I can bore it nice and round after welding) but I went ahead and painted the hubs so they could dry overnight.

Finished up the hubs and tried the wheels on the tractor. The hubs here are in narrow configuration.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9219

Welded tabs on the knuckles for steering arms, and drilled for tie rod holes.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9220

Stock tie rods look a little goofy lol! I put the tabs on top so I could put tie rods on the bottom, stock tie rods won’t stay for long but do surprisingly work fine here.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9218

Here you can see more detail on the tab I guess, and see that the hubs are in the wide configuration. Or as we in Kentucky would call it, “bass ackwards”. I realized with the hubs like this I get the same track width front and back, at the cost of increasing scrub radius. I do have a plan to correct this and maintain track width, though. Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  2731072446
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9221

Took it out with the new fronts and this thing is a beast off-road compared to before! The crazy wheelies are a little harder but still doable!

Well that was easy!

Stock lawn ranger axle vs my stock 414-8 axle. Everything is the same besides the width!
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9223

Got my scrub radius back, with nearly identical front and back widths!
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9224

Even reused the stock 414-8 tie rods! Realized I could just swap left and right to get the tie rods on the right side of the spindle arms.

So the fender had four cups pressed into it, to raise it off the frame and give it places to bolt to as well. I cut those out and dropped the fender about an inch to the frame. Then I drilled some holes and put the seat on the wheel horse seat springs that came on the 414. Overall only gained maybe an inch of seat height. Much better on my back and isn’t any more tippy at all.

Took the lawn ranger to the woods today. My usual bunny trails turn into super sketchy stuff on this thing.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9314

Also I jammed my idler against a log and the belt burned through it a bit lol!

The shifter set screw backed out. It practically fell apart when I went to put it back in. Wheel horse guys know how hateful these things are.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9412

Made a new one out of a grade 8 bolt. All this does is hold the shifter in the right place so the little ball on the end of the shift rod can move the shift forks.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9411

Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9413

Cut the ends of the tie rods off and drilled and tapped them for 3/8” heim joints.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9410

The steering block bushing was pretty wore out, I pressed it out and then teamed out the block to accept a 7/8” OD flange bushing rather than the odd 13/16” sleeve one
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9511

Added a grease fitting too. The steering on this thing is tighter than the 414 now!

So here’s another mod intended for the 414 that got tested on the Guinea pig. Added a flange bearing to the steering shaft up front, where before it just pivoted in the front axle plate.

You can see where I had to grind material off of the housing to fit between the frame rails. Also had to grind a bit of a chamfer on the very bottom of the grease fitting side of the bearing.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9514


Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9513

Basically just slid it on the steering shaft, put shaft back in original spot, drilled it thru and bolted it. Steering is about as tight as can be now!

I realized the hole for the original gas tank in the hood makes a good beverage holder
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9610

The steering wheel was kinda loose on the shaft so I added some set screws to tighten it up. Also welded the spokes into the hub as they were starting to loosen up.
Lawn Ranger Tomfoolery  Img_9610

Put this 820 trans pulley on the 212 for an extra flywheel weight. Gives the little engine a whole bunch more momentum, sort of makes the engine less jerky and slower to bog down. A lot of enduro guys run weighted flywheels on their dirt bikes, where I got the idea.
