what gets me is why would you get rid of both brake pedals on a tractor that was suppose to have run 4 years ago? there must be something else wrong with it maybe?. hard to tell if the trans, rear end is in good shape. you would think 6 hp wouldn't tear up a truck trans and a car rear end but a guy I know had one and the axle snapped off at the splines.the guy selling it also fixes up and sells full size tractors.

The torque transmitted through the gear reduction of the belt pulleys and chain sprockets makes that 6hp put out alot more torque than you would think. The AEH builds a lot of torque due to its long stroke and bore size. I can see an axle snapping under the right conditions, especially when using the non spring trip dirt/snow plow. These tractors get very good traction. A badly worn outer axle bearing could also stress the axle at the splines.
