Hi!  At first i must excus me for not represent myself directly.

 

but it has a reason, i had 2 wheel horses c125   When i discovered your site ..  than sold them an didnt expect to buy another..  til a few weeks ago  i found a 416-8in pretty good shape   They really are hard to find here and  price is about  double as in the us i guess 😁

 

for the rest  i am 30y i work as a trickdriver/mechanic  and like to spend my tile building things or in the woods..

 

The plan with the wheelhorse is to  use it for my yard  and to pull things..  also i have wached many mudmower movies and that inspires me , so i want to make a mud tractor    A combination of a mudmower and a still usefull  and lovely tool 

 

here are some pics       I have allready maked a tractor exhaust from a ( obviously) american harley, changed the tires and  repainted the hhood and added soms underhoods extras 😇

 

 @the moderators for the rest of the mower do i need to put it here or is there another subforum to share my pics and..?

Looks like fun. We have some British members that have used ATV front axles to make theirs into a four wheel drive.

:text-coolphotos:         The last frame of the video explains a lot,   Miller Lite and Vodka signs in the background!        :confusion-confused:

It will take some time   It is not really a project more a work tool  where i gently add some mods  hehe    Now i am searching for some other pulleys  but i want it all as original as possible,  other pulleys to go a bit faster but the original vbelt..  and the original parts i took off can all be remaked.    If you se eon the pic  i have a heavy steel batterycase to add more front wheigt  and the original place of the battery is now a toolbox      On the rear i am planning to make a lift of something but that i dont know yet.  I also dont know how moch weight the axle may handle. 

 

 @953nut do you know wich members that are or where i can find the topics?

Update time !  

 

I finaly f8nished the hood   And  changes the lights into 2 leds  

 

i also welded a support for opening the hood and to put 2lights on ..

 

yesterday i found some atv tires for the front  maybe a little overrated but i must try..  just because 

For those who wonder  they are 21*11-8   Large balloon tires so they will float on water and mud ..  i hope

I think the original engine pulley is around 4" and the transmission pulley 6".

 

To keep the belt the same length you will need to either put 4" on the rear and 6" on the front - or swap both to 5". Either way increasing the front pulley will mean the belt guard fouls on the engine pulley

 

My 4WD C-101 has a 4" pulley on the rear and original belt - however I dropped the transmission 40mm in order to fit the bigger tyres.
