I'm still waiting for you to mention that other reason you shouldn't be left unsupervised. You know, that 'other' reason.

Magnums I believe are opposed twins. They Don't fit as well. The Comands fit nice.

You need more than 10 HP diesel for that rig to work efficiently. I have one with a 16.5 HP Kubota diesel in it and it works hard at tilling and blowing snow!!
My pick would be a 18+ HP v-twin kohler , as its almost a direct bolt in if you have the engine mount brackets from the original engine. All you need to do is drill 2 holes and grind a little notch for the starter.
Also need to change ign. Switch to switched ground for engine kill. Very easy swap.


Maybe, but on this unit, the Snowblower and tiller both run off the PTO, The hydro only handles travel and lift. I'm suspecting that the size of the implement has more effect than the hydro.

 IF you just plan on driving it around then it would work ok , but for mowing or any pto work...... not so good.

 

 One thing you need to look at is displacement of the engine, regaurdless of fuel types cid is going to have the last word.

 So if that  10 hp diesel has 30+ cid then it should do ok , if its under that, well , its gonna work hard all the time and probably not last as long.

This thing won't be working much, I have two mowers now, I don't need a tiller at the moment, although I have one for my black 100. I can put a snow blade on my LT75 when I need it.
The most it will ever do is push, and run the simple hydraulics on a snow blade, I may add a bit more oil capacity, and a cooler to run a second cylinder for independent lift at both ends.
