Will it break?? Heck yea! Powerful hydraulics don't know that
they are on a little garden tractor. They just do what they do. If
you have a collectors or antique tractor, don't do this. If you aren't
good with equipment, don't do this. You can break or flip the tractor
and could even get killed or injured doing it. I love my tractor, but I
also respect (am afraid of) it.
Cast Iron Axle; Highly recommended at about $100 for the axel.
I abused mine by accident. (Oops, that wasn't reverse)
For more damage stuff, see the Project 2006 page;
It's mostly repairs, and a little tractor work.
