I am looking for a cheaper older tractor to do nothing but run a 6ft to seven ft brushhog, dont need anything fancy and want to spend as little as possible what do you suggest. something like an 8N?
That would be an overrun clutch...yes I used an 8N and you are correct but they make an adapter (dontknow whatits called) but it works like the rear sprocket on an old freestyle bicycle. simple design like a ratchet. if the blades are spinning fsetr than the PTO they just Coast. someone out here has to know what i am referring to.
Sorry TH but the 8N has more power than that and parts are a lot more available. Thanks though.
I have been looking at a few of thoseOh well Wizard!--but there's a '59 641 Ford Diesel on the same CL site,in a town next to mine for the same price!--no mower though..34 HP,the ad says..must be like my 341 gas powered one I used to have..same dilema with the overrunning clutch though,on that one too probably..
