    Wink Wanted help in making mini cars from lawn tractors

    Hello
    I am new to the group.
    I am looking for people interested in making anything but a lawn mower, from riding mowers.
    Mini cars, trucks, redneck vehicles, anything at all but a lawn mower.

    Hey there - WELCOME to LMF!

    I moved your thread to the Build-It Yourself Forum. By the way - cool idea! Have you ever done that before?

    Thank you Briana !
    I have not done it myself yet, but have seen a few of them near Toronto, where a guy builds bodies out of stainless steel and puts them on old lawn tractors. I have been hooked on the idea ever since and now have a couple donor tractors to do so with and looking to see if anyone else has done this before for some new ideas and guidance.

    I have a old murray lawn mower in which the deck finally gave out. So my uncle and I changed the pully ratios and it now goes 22mph!!! Gps clocked. We put a 8 inch pulley on the engine and a 3 inch on the transaxle. It has a 14.5hp briggs.

    Re: Wanted help in making mini cars from lawn tractors

    I actually have had the idea ( been done numerous times tho by others) about using one of those powerwheels kid's cars and adding a steel chassis, lawnmower motor and lawnmower wheels - im still looking for a cheep escalade powerwheels truck to make one . Some people put subwoofers and stereos in em and use em in sound competitions .

    Roof used to make a machine that looked like a mini jeep, but could mow, plow snow, plow the garden- those are rare and hard to find.

    I used to be in this one forum, this one guy started to build a smaller jeep totally out of metal, lawntractor motor, bobcat wheels/tires - he ended up selling it before finishing it.

    I plan on making a 'rat rod' from a wheelhorse( sheetmetal) and bolens ( chassis)- lowered hot rod tractor- also using a 80's MTD wizard for a 'go kart' - straight axle, 6.5HP horizontal shaft motor , lowered - stuff like that.

    Your idea sounds very interesting, and I would love so see some pictures if you do decide to make one
