Someone correct me if I am wrong (too often). I believe that to flat tow an 8N very far that you have to leave the engine running to provide lube of the top of the transmission.
Secondly, unless you have a very tight steering box and links, front end can shake itself to death.
Thirdly, what kind ot ground clearence do you have carrying a belly mower?

I don't know myself. But I know I've seen it discuss here before. The conclusion was you need to leave the engine running if you tow it very far.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeAnybody can draw a conclusion! Why is the question? Looks to me like whether sitting in neutral with engine idling or engine off being towed down the road, either way about half of the gears are churning & slinging oil, kinda like the differential is doing.

I've been looking in the archives for that and have not found it yet.

Looking at a cut-a-way, it still appears to me that the front portion of the trans would have no lube. What did I miss?

Well to tow one it would be out of gear but since the rear end would be moving so would some gears in the transmission and those gears would throw oil up and around so nothing would be hurt by lack of oil. Works the same way as if you where pulling a car or truck with a stick shift and when you do that the transmission in that car/truck is not hurt but the rear end is still moving the drive shaft so then internal gears in that transmission is still moving and oil is thrown up and around those gears. Understand where I am coming from??

Yes. Then the only explanation for being able to fry and egg on the top of the transmission after flat towing was that it was low on fluid to start with.

The transmission would not be any problem since it is a splash/gear pick up lube system but yes the steering can well be a problem and if loose like most can cause the wag the tow car/tuck right off the road

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI'll go with steering looseness & mower ground clearance, but not transmission/engine running.
