Boy that would be neat!
If they did, it's so extremely rare that it is unheard of, though.
Just for everyone's benefit: The Howard despeeder unit is a planetary gearbox that bolted between the differential and final drive on a Cub for the Howard Rotovator.
It would be a bit of a challenge on a C because the final drives are internal to the transmission, where on the Cub they are out at the wheels. There's no place to conveniently put anything "between" on a C.
I'm sure if someone put their mind to it they could build an axle housing with a built-in gear reduction, but by the time all is said and done, they'd have more into it than a good used compact tractor with hydrostatic drive would cost. It would have to be someone with lots of time on their hands, skill/talent out their wazoo, and a real passion for machine work.
