My son lives about 1 1/2 miles from me. In the city. I was wondering what if any damage would occur from driving a LT or RT back and forth to his house. I have a variety if tractors, but the one I was wondering about is an STX38 Black deck. Would the trans fluid get overly hot? Cause any damage? BTW My son weighs in at about 365 pounds. Thanks Greg

Way back when I would drive a riding lawn mower about 5 miles one way to go mow a church owned piece of land and then mow and drive it back. But that was also back in the early 70s

I respectfully suggest that your son pushes the tractor both ways and he is not allowed to pack a lunch.

I suspect transport driving would be easier on a LT than mowing is.

Might as well mow the road sides as you go. If there are any since its city.

STX38 can have a 5 speed gear transaxle or the K46 Hydro.... if you have the gearbox it would probably be fine but those K46 hydro's are prone to failure... Might be ok if the route is perfectly flat.

Neighbor borrowed/rented our Cub Cadet 70 to mow his large house yard and barnyard, also about 1/8th
mile of roadbank. Brand new Cub Cadet 70, used it for 7-8 years, never gave it a thought that he was over
1/2 mile away. Mowed our big house yard and barnyard plus quarter mile of roadbank too. Still the best
Cub Cadet I have, mowed the most grass of the 4 I own too. The 7 hp Kohler was either rebuilt or
replaced about every 3 years back then.

If your little Deere breaks down on it's way to your son's yard, it would have broken down on you
anyhow.

Trans temp is dependent on load, not speed, gear drive or hydro running at transport speed should be no
problem. Might add a couple pounds more air pressure in rear tires.

On the upside, I am giving my son this tractor. He only has to get it to his house, and not back. Also, there is an ice cream parlor, a pizza joint, and a Subway between here and there, so maybe it won't be one long trip. His yard is as flat as a pancake, so no problem there. Also, his step son weighs about 115 pounds soaking wet. On the down side, his step son is 17 and has wrecked 3 cars since getting his license. Either way I don't predict a long life for this tractor. That's sad, as it has served me well for many years. Thanks for all the replies. Greg

If he weighs that much you should get him a push mower, an old one without an engine!

I do not remember why, but I guess I did not have a wide enough trailer at the time. I drove my 25hp Simplicity from town out here a few times. 2 miles.
