Turning Troy Bilt Tuffy into Walk behind brush hog
I finally have a welder. I have a running driving Troy Bilt Tuffy with pullys, belts, sheet metal, 17hp engine and rear end missing a deck that I despise and dont often use. I have a local salvage yard I can walk around and pick out of. I want a GT but need a brush cutter. Cant afford to buy one whole but already have most of the pricey parts with some assembly required.
The main question I have, and why Im posting this here, will the rear end from the LT, basically part number 918-0551A, work in a walk behind brush hog? Could I just pull on one side of the handle to get it to turn or would I need to rig it up to brake steer like a larger tractor? Ill be dropping from the full size LT rear tires to wheels off a rear tine tiller.
