Are you fucking kidding me? That's an actual thing? Ahahahahaha!!!
 
I should have never of clicked on this thread.


Shit.
 
you fukks in the snowbelt really do lose yer minds during the freeze huh?!

We do most of our riding in winter on these yes lol.

But we do ride year round between jeeps, sxs, and other hobbies. We just do all those less in winter so we do these more
 
So uh, any particular models that work best? Seems to be older the better.

Easiest to build are the old sears and wheel horses with geared hi/lo trans.

With enough fab anything will work. but your basic yard mower isn't going to cut it (pun intended) for riding like we do.

we try to keep them very much tractor, and stay away from atv suspensions/engines etc.

Most of my group just have higher hp engines, (we have a guy running a 30hp generac motor) locked axles, a bigger engine pulley for speed and atv tires, with some beefed up steering and such.
 
I fucking hate my two case 444s but I'll bet they would be fucking champs at this.

Just offered $50 for a Craftsman LT4000 tractor that won't run. :laughing:
 
Either tire chains or bolt angle iron on rear tires is how we roll. Full steel tires will bust the trans too quick. They need pipe bumpers also
 
Wife got me to bring a Ford YT16 home last weekend. This thread is perfect timming lol. Needs its transaxle fixed (bent shaft). I got the "great we need more axles around here" from the wife hehe
