Yes It is in need of a cooler! Everybody needs a wheelchair, right?

I have considered putting a snowblower on the front, or a hydraulic lift boom, or forklift haha.

Anyways, Its so overbuilt that you cant break it break, always starts first pull, Any is always an (usually drunk) adventure.

So it earned its keep.


Just make your front axle pivot, you will thank me.

I now have a wheelchair that can relocate snow.

Not a snowblower , but it works good. Made from scrap.

I found a 12v starter from a VM80. I already installed a charge coil and flywheel with ring gear, so why not.

No more pulling!

The AC coil directly drives the incandescent tail lights , the DC output charges the battery and powers the lightbar.

Stack, snorkel, ATV tires, reverse, flares, pushbar, tow hook, lights, e-start, what am I missing/need?

Ill work on that lol

Since I destroyed the spicer rear end in the chair,
I am replacing it with a Tuff Torq K70 Hydro axle.

Much beefier,

Introducing the hydro chair

The axle I used had 23x10.5x12 tires with a 4.5 on 5 pattern when It was in a John Deere garden tractor. This was not practical, so I had to do some trimming to install 20x10x8 wheels that have a smaller inner circle. I also welded in the front axle mounts.

Permanently In now. Should be back in service soon.

How do you think those huge tyres are going to affect your performance? I'm not too sure if I am liking them yet

Suprizeingly they are the same 20x10-8 size as the previous wheels, and three inches smaller than the transaxle is designed for.

Mounting different tires is no issue

18in agricultural tires would look cool.

I am going to turn the input as close to the max speed of 3100rpm as possible and hope for the best wheel speed, torque will not be an issue.

If the gxv140 bogs I have a more powerful kohler or vm80 to put on it.

The axle is mounted lower than before, that jacked up the rear end.

The hydrochair lives!

The bad news, reverse will not work right now.

The brake is fully disengaged, and the hydro release has a spring pulling it towards the engaged position.

Its like something is stopping it, the control arm will rest in neutral, go forward all day, but just locks up in reverse, the control arm does not move at all. Any Ideas? The axle supposedly worked fine when in the John Deere, until the frame broke in half. And I pulled it from the tractor, and can confirm the frame broke.

But at least it drives, the foot control is bomb!

I installed the kohler "honda clone" , its just like the old engine, but 173cc vs 140cc, and alot fresher
