How to: Make A Riding Lawn Mower FAST!

Here's a video covering the pulley swaps, and custom tensioner pulleys I've built and installed on our off road and mudding tractors. Pulley swaps make you lawn mower faster. You want to increase the size of the front, and/or make the back pulley smaller to increase the speed of your lawn mower or tractor.

Green MTD has a 4" front, stock rear

Craftsman crawler has stock size pulleys

Murray has 4" in the front, and 5" in the rear

Hey love the videos! I got a question. Is there anyway to do a double
pulley swap so i can keep both upper and lower pulleys off of the engine so
I can mow the lawn at a faster speed? I want to keep my deck. I have a 10'
pulley that came on the trans axle. I am not sure of the front one but its
not too big. Do you have any suggestions? The mower is a craftsman
917.271550 with a 15.5 OHV briggs. Thanks!

Hi fearlessfront im 15 years old and i need some help on making my 14 HP
murray run smooth. I did a pulley swap with a 4in pulley on the STOCK
tranny. it does go really fast! BUT something clicks I think its the tranny
it also kinda jerks a little. my last tranny i had did the same thing but
didnt have a pulley swap and clicked and jerked then i cracked the case.
i'm afraid of cracking the case again! do u use a stock tranny on your
murray mower?? what are your thoughts, thanks

worked on small engines it's always been diesels and cars and trucks.

How did u pulley swap the craftsman i have the exact same tractor and i
went underneath to start on a pulley swap and the clutch lever/pulley is a
half/quarter inch from the engine drive pulley and with the clutch pushed
in its almost touching so if i swap the drive pulley over to the deck
pulley to gear it up they are going to hit so I'm stumped....

Hey fearless I just an old cub cadet and planed to make it into a mud mower
but it has a drive shaft instead of pulleys like yours, what should I do

Автор TrueBlogge777 ( назад)
This is just altering the gear ratios like changing the sprockets on a
motorbike, but removing the blades you are recovering more power from the
engine, so it will go faster,
you can also pull little trailers with them, they are quite powerful.
