Tim,

   One caution: Pay close attention to http://www.heymow.com/index.php?topic=14202.0 , Reply #35 on page 3 of that Post, if you are looking for a used 820.  You don't want five or six Reverse speeds and only one Forward speed.

Heymowers,

   If you are looking for new drivetrain-related components, logon to
http://roms-peerless-transaxle-supply.ecrater.com/ and enter what you are looking for in the Search box.  I specialize in 820 transaxles and high-speed Gearset Upgrades, but I also have available other discount-priced transaxles, wheels, hubs, etc.

   If you need to contact me, please use my email address (it's in my Heymow Profile), as I check my emails much more often than I do my Heymow Messages. Thanks!

Yota,

   I offer an 820 Deere Conversion Kit for your LX170 which includes a new, factory-warranted 820 transaxle -- logon to http://roms-peerless-transaxle-supply.ecrater.com/p/8634638/peerless-820-transaxle-upgrade-conversion-for-deere-100 .  If that link doesn't work, logon to www.roms-peerless-transaxle-supply.ecrater.com and enter New Peerless 820 Transaxle Upgrade Conversion for Deere in the Search box.  I have these Kits in stock.

   This Kit includes all the necessary mounting parts plus instructions.  It also includes new 8" x 7" wheels, but you'll need 12" wheels if you are wanting to go with 23"-24" OD tires.  Replacing the pulley with a larger one would require determining how much larger the circumference of the larger tires would be in comparison with your existing tires, then proportioning the pulley accordingly.  This would also require moving your belt guides to accept the larger pulley.

   I would also recommend the tractor-lug tires (see the ones on my Custom Yard Tractor -- http://www.heymow.com/index.php?topic=24829.0 ) if you are "having traction problems hauling wood through snow."  With these ballasted tires and a weight box, you shouldn't have any traction problems, and you shouldn't need chains, either.

   Let me know if I can be of further help.  And let me know the Model Number of the 820 in the Murray, and I can tell you what you'll need to change to make it work in your Deere.  My email address is in my Profile -- I check my emails much more often than I check my Heymow Messages.

Nick,

   Oregon ( www.oregonoep.com ) makes a "Magnum" line of heavy-duty starters.

Tim,

   In the Heymow post http://www.heymow.com/index.php?topic=14202.0 , Reply #12 lists the gear ratios of all 820s, and the last column of that thread shows the OEMs who used that particular 820.  If you're searching mower boneyards for 820s, the mowers using the 820s will usually be the ones with 12" rear rims, 23"-24" diameter tires (e.g. 23x10.50-12 tire size), and twin-cylinder engines. 

   I have new discounted 820s -- http://roms-peerless-transaxle-supply.ecrater.com/ -- but they're still more expensive than used ones.  On the other hand, with a new one, you know you are getting a new one, not a possibly worn-out one in questionable condition.  And...I can ship worldwide.

What makes an Intek cheaper than a Vanguard?

   Different engineering, specifications, materials, tolerances, and manufacturing processes.  Vanguards are made for the "upper-end" mowers, whereas the Inteks are designed, produced and priced for the mass-merchant ride-on units.  Vanguards are designed to outlive the Inteks, maintenance being equal.

Ray,

   If the rules allow -- drill-&-tap a minimum 3/8"-SAE (fine thread) hole in the center of the outside of the spindle.  Tap right-hand thread on the right side and left-hand thread on the left side -- this will prevent the bolt from loosening while running -- and use red Loctite on the bolt threads.  Use Grade 8 bolts with lock washers and oversize flat washers.

do they come in any other color?
Big T,

   White is the only standard color these come in.  Any other color would require an order of 200.

   Sorry for the delay in answering -- my mistake.

720,

  What drivetrain are you running?  Transaxle?  Transmission & sprockets?  Pulley sizes?

  Aside from the usual family, health and business things to be thankful for, I am also thankful for the Heymow website that allows us to share our knowledge, experiences and successes.  Yes, and sometimes, even our mistakes and failures.

I run those same gear sets in my 820 along with the next available gear set  (overdrive) utilizing a 6 speed gear set.

Lester
Lester,

  Which gear do you use mostly, or does it depend on the track?

Jason,

   If you got the Owner's Manual with the mower, look at the wiring diagram in the back by the Parts List.  The diagram should show what the part is.  If you did not get the Owner's Manual with the mower:
1. Get the Model Number of your Husqvarna off the label under the seat;
2. Logon to www.sears.som/partsdirect ;
3. Select "Model Number" in the first Search box, then enter your Model Number in the second box;
4. When your mower parts come up, go to the Wiring section and print out the diagram.
   If the Sears site doesn't accept your Model Number, you may need to try the designation on the hood, such as "LT2000."
   If sears/partsdirect doesn't help, try www.partstree.com .
