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

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

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

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....

That's pretty sweet I did a pulley swap on my mower and can go 25-30 mph on

fast you're making a riding mower able to kill you.. And then you're going
to blame the manufacture when you get hurt

Your title says "how to make a Riding Lawn Mower fast", but I don't see any

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.

hey fearless, my lawn tractor does 15-20 mph with a pulley swap underneath.
Me and my friend took our tractors out for a weekend of 'romping madness'
and mine broke. it just wouldn't start. I was towed home and on the hills I
put it in neutral and free wheeled, braking when I needed to. however when
I fixed my mower a few days later I realised that it had no brakes....at
all. do you know how I could fix this problem?

no, you to be able to "slip" the clutch... if it's chain, it will grab all

If I could find a way to make it chain drive will that work or will it be
to much for the transaxle

probably about a 6-7" on the motor, and a 3" on the transmission
