Looks cool but nothing much there. It has a weak frame and was probably never pulled before. More than likely it was put together then decided to sell it. Not sure what kind or rearend (im assuming it has a weak transmission in it) and does it run? In my opinion it would be good to play around with in the yard but to make into a puller would require a good bit of work depending on your local clubs rules. So not alot of potential there unless you have time to invest and some cash.

The rear end is the unknown here. It looks like it was a cheap Mastercraft mower and if it has the stock rear end that Rotax twin (24hp)? will tear it up pretty quick. He did do a pretty nice job of stuffing the drive in under the hood though. It looks like it has an ATV front end on it so the entire frame may not be what it appears. It may not be eligible as a puller. I'd check that carefully before buying.

I noticed a variable speed drive off of the engine output shaft too. Probably quick & fast, but for how long?

Looks like a fun toy but don't drive it until you have wheelie bars installed. If those tiny tires ever hooked up it'll be upside down and on top of you.

I would check out the rules for ypur club you want to pull with, most want stock drivetrains of the chassis used .I have run rigs like that for fun and its hard to keep the engine making power when its hot out.

That looks like the drive train from the original skidoo. I'm sure it would be really fast. If you've ever driven a skidoo from that era they were pretty fun and could accelerate quite hard. It brings back some fun memories!

Unless it's something you really, really want... I'm pretty sure he would be getting the better of the deal.

I know how that goes. I got my license 6 months ago and it is great to be able to just get in my truck and go get whatever I need,whenever I need it. You may want to keep an eye out on your local Craigslist for a gear drive Cub Cadet. They make really good pullers.

Welcome to the GT hobby in Canada! The prices seem to be a lot higher up here than in the US. You can still find deals but many of them are never advertised and those that are get scooped up pretty quick.
