I appreciate the update, and watch out for the little checkered flag when you get to you destination. It just kinda pops out at you :D


All that checkered flag means is I won LOL.

stock speed on the 10 is like 10.3 mph and the 14/16 is 9.4. if you could get some 26" 40.82
tires over the 23" 36.11" itd do about 12mph. or the stock speed of a jd 400

On my Massey 10 garden tractor projects when I put the 6.70x15 rear tires on them I'll bet they go over 10 miles per hour. Those size rear tires are 27 inches high and I use Dodge caravan spare tire rims which are 15 inch and have the correct 5 on 4 1/2 bolt pattern to bolt right up to the garden tractor hubs.


Does it seem to be hard on it, or does it handle it OK?

I have not had any problems so far. I have pulled it a couple times in garden tractor pulls just for fun and driven it around at shows. I use the same rear tire setup on my Massey narrow front but I did change the pullies on that one to slow it down to about regular speed. The narrow front felt a bit tippy going that fast and trying to turn!
