I asked the question and hope this is the answer. It has a belt from the engine to the driveshaft with a disc clutch. I hope it pulls as good as it looks.

only problem with those is getting more pressure on the clutch but with the tires that are on it you shouldnt have a problem....... should run pretty good with the kohler motor

Sears vs Wheel Horse - If you were using dealer stock tractors, this would be a realistic question. But, you're all modifying these so much that it pretty much doesn't matter what you start with. You can put MTD sheet metal on a strong puller.

like you said when ya use dealer stock tractors then it just comes down to setup and driver.... just peoples preference on which tractor they like.... when ya get into modding motors and putting heavy weight on a tractor they'll all break, everything has a weak point.... even the cub guys with built trannies break also.... basically the same thing with cars... you may have a fast car but there is always somebody faster

I think its funny how my current puller (GT/19.9) has cost me a total of $200. That includes the tractor, weight bracket materials, and tires.

My SS/16 cost me about 600 with less weight and smaller tires

Hold your tongue boy. You haven't pulled transfer, or in weight classes. There is no 1300lb tractor in any of my local classes. You weigh about 200lb less then the weights your pulling. A stock Sears 19.9 vs. a stock Cub with similar HP, the cub is going to win.

Past about 1500rpms, the 19.9 just does NOT bog or lug or lose power. it just keeps going.
