Default Re: Steering brakes



The large square piece could be mounted on the rear cowl next to your knee
with the shaft thru the cowl. Probably would place one on the outside
with a bushing to stablize the shaft and hold the handle out a 1/4 inch.
run a cable to each brake and piggy back on with the stock cables.
I think someone with skills could market a kit for around 100 dollars
including cables.

Like Jon, I have a fair amount of time on tractors with steering brakes. My last hobby tractor was an old Ford. I used the brakes the most when I was plowing snow with the rear blade and I had trouble steering and losing traction because of the drag. It allowed me to crawl along in the right direction, which was not possible any other way. Once stuck all the brakes allowed me to do was alternate which rear wheel spun. There's a reason most modern tractors are 4wheel drive (or at least front wheel assist). I personally would not set up differential braking on a golf cart, but I don't see any reason why this design wouldn't work. I would add a method to lock the brakes together if you intend to drive fast. Hitting just one brake in road gear in a tractor was a really bad idea.

The diagram that Crash drew up is similiar to a Maasey Furguson Backhoe I operated for a while. That had steering brakes in the same fashion but it had a metal tab that flipped up so you could use the steering brakes. If you flipped the tab down it would lock both pedal together making them work as one. I like the design but what about the hill brake? Jim
