I put the mower on my panzer 1107 and it mows way better than my normal mowing machine. I just dont want to over work it, Im all ways affraid of it overheating and dont mow for more than 30mins without letting it cool down. do u think the engine and tractor can handle the stress of mowing for an hour and a half?

They were designed to do that and more. Just make sure the cooling fins are in good shape & clean, fresh oil (synthetic runs a little cooler I think) and you should be good to go. Eventually, everything breaks, but these things were built to work.

Doesn't that Panzer leave a strip of uncut grass down the middle since you shortened the blades? :spanka:

Most of these garden tractors were meant to run for Hours and hours at a time, so as long as the engine cooling fins are clear/clean and you change the oil regularly I wouldnt hesitate to use your tractor.
