hydro trans (rider) question..


LawnSite Senior Member
Would a hydro trans from a tractor mower (Murray) still work if trans was tilted 90 degrees so as the pulley/fan is horizontal rather than vertical on top? I imagine might be venting issue but other than that? (just toying with a project)- This is just a general question as type and model not determined yet.

Never heard of anyone trying this so I really don't know if it would work or not without internal damage.......

I could use it normal but I'd have to run a pulley for it off a right-angle gear box as the power train to run it uses a horizontal pulley config. Long story and crazy idea..So I'll leave it at that. I'll know more once I look into different set-ups. Just thinking outside the box for fall project when mowing/leaves are done.
