Welcome to GTT. Go to the Manuals Section and download the manuals that you want(they're free). Many of the parts used in older GTs were common standard parts. Keep looking for other GTs. I suspect that your tractor may not be a GT but a Lawn Tractor(LT). Dragging trees would probably tear an LT to pieces. Good Luck, Rick
Just depends on the lawn tractor. I have a 1979 Murray 11 LT and it pulls our 10ft long trailer in top gear, with ease. Transmission is a 3spd Peerless 600 though, much tougher than a chain drive rig.

Thanks! Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. So the plan is to put a bigger chain and sprocket (I have used motorcycle chains lying around..), and to double up the V-belt primary drive, as I suspect it will be slipping onder bigger loads. For now I think the rest will be fine, but I guess I will reïnforce whatever breaks next.. Just hope it is not the gearbox, because that might be harder to replace or upgrade...
I don't think the V-belt is likely to slip.
