The idea of a pedal garden tractor was brought up on another thread, I figured  would post here for everyone to see. This is built from my buddy Jon who also built my OH160 ignition, man for only being about 21-22 yrs old, this guy is amazingly smart when it comes to these tractors, small engines and pulling.

 

Here is his description on the build.

 

the tractor has been sitting in storage since September and hasnt been moved...and I painted this thing in about 2 days, and was reasembling it while the paint was drying..thats what happens when you build it 2 weeks before the tractor show...So its dirty and paint aint as nice as id liked it to be...BUT the story is its a Moto-mower(is what I was told the frame is) frame, I got it with nothing but a rear end and front axle...I put a grill and hood from an ST10 on it...then used an 8xl dash I think it was, and then a set of old DB suburban fender I think they were and built my own tunnel area between the rear and the dash..then used a draw bar from a GT14 variable speed tractor I junked...used some old pulling parts for a the hitch and wheelie bars and built a weight bracket for the front and had a realllly cool sears pedal tractor...YES it work, it has 3forward gears and 1 reverse...you pedal forward and as long as your in 1-3 it goes forward!! I got it to all work correctly!! Also the pics are a little dark cause its still in the storage...i can get pics of any part!! BUT i wont give up my secret on how I got the pedals to make it go forward...(if u think u pedal forward but the motor was supposed to run the opposite way!!)

 

Youtube link, hope it works since I'm at work and cannot open it.

That is pretty cool. Maybe that is what I need to get to work this gut off.  :wallbanging:

It would be quite a workout to plow the driveway with that!
