Hi, as mentioned in another post i have two of these, both slightly different so we will call them 1 and 2, this is 1
Duals.jpg

10hp B+S chained to an Albion 3 speed gearbox to a Morris car rear axle with a welded diff, its fine on soft ground but a bit iffy to steer on tar as you could imagine.
This is 2 on arrival being moved around the easy way,

Again a 10hp B+S but is belted to a 4 speed Morris gearbox and again to a Morris rear axle with welded diff, both machines have box steel chassis.
Controls on both are hand throttle, master brake cylinders on each of the two pedals and a slave cylinder on the gearboxes, very simply made which is good as there is little to go wrong.
To give scale, bad pic i know but here is a Husqvarna mower next to them.

And here they are both together.

I just need to source some tyres for number 2, remake the brake pipes, and replace the tipping body, the engine is already running fine and just needs refitted.
Sam.

Hi, they will probably get up to around 20mph if you are brave but with no suspension and locked diffs that might be asking for trouble, i am contemplating changing the axle on one of them to a 4x4 axle, that way the diff lock would be selectable.
