Okay, so I'm on to the next project now, it all started while my son was watching a "Mighty Machines" dvd, seeing how much he liked the tractors and trucks, I decided to get going on this one. While driving down the street a few months back I saw this Pedal Power Peg Perego HD700 Excavator in a trash pile, so I said... hmmm why not, its been sitting in the garage for a while. It was in pretty good shape, needed new tires though, but still usable. I decided to motorize it, I took the wiring harness and 19t gearboxes and motors from an old PW Jeep and away I went. I also happened to find another HD700 with like brand new tires and bucket ... sooo now I have spare parts FOR FREE.

Here is a picture of what it looks like stock, I have to say, it is well made, the steering is great.

I took it apart and added the motors and gearboxes, shifter.

53.08 KB

With the pedals and chain removed I fabricated some foot pedals out of aluminum and corner brackets.


46.91 KB

I then mounted them to the sides of the tractor

After some quick test wiring and a 14v cordless drill battery we were ready for a test, and wow this thing flies.
ps... please don't mind my audio, i was very excited lol


Now its time to start upgrading this thing a little more, I got rid of the fake sticker gauges and put in a voltmeter and amp meter.

And now to turn this ordinary dozer into a "mighty machine", In getting it ready for the winter, son loves daddy's tractor with the snow plow so I figured I would make him one too. I have this push plow laying around so i figure i'll put it to use with a little modification.

I know some say plowing with a PW won't work, but its for fun anyway, I was looking at videos of little remote control trucks plowing snow, and thought why not, The tires on this thing have good grip, for an inch of light fluffy snow i think it may work. Well thats all I have for now, udates to come.

Nice job!
You may need more weight over the drive wheels for plowing - but that shouldn't be difficult to do. Make a detachable battery pack!

Exellent! I have the same tractor and have been planning this same Idea. I also plan to add #3 gearboxes up front to make it 4wd.


You could take your worn tires and wrap them with some rubber floor mat. I think you could push some wet snow then.......I'll get you a link to the stuff I'm refering to.

This thread covers the floor mats....

Thanks Taz11 and Divinar for your ideas, they are both great. Taz11 you seem to be the king of 4wd I never thought about it before due to the different size wheels, I hope you get started soon.
Side note, I was impressed about how strong this plastic frame is, I'm 6'1" 200lbs ...(and some change ) and I sat on this thing and was able to drive around, It was a funny sight though, but fun.

I haven't done the math yet.....I'm hoping a 16t #7 in the rear and a 3A in the front will be close.

I'll start a thread when I get that far.

That looks great I'm surprised how fast it goes on 14v seems fasted than some cars on 18v. I was also thinking of changing over a peddal tractor to battery power maybe a future project.

I DID THE MATH......if you should choose to take on the challenge.

Stock motors at 12 volts


Front wheels
3A...4.25 MPH
3B...3.87 MPH

Rear wheels
15t #7...4.16 MPH (rare GB)
16t #7...4.45 MPH


Looks like the 3A with a 15t is the best option....but the 3A and a 16t should be close enough to work.

I hope you didn't "pop" your own wheelie - and if you did, don't tell me!

Aw man... you guys are too funny... Yeah I kept yelling for him to stop on the grass cause I wanted him to take off and pop another wheelie. Also in terms of the speed, that video was taken with the battery not even at a full charge. This thing was scary fast, but he handles it well, and can't wait for me to finish it. I'm goona aim to be all done in the coming week.
Also could use some help coming up with a lift mechanism for the plow, I was thinking of using the side handle off one of the buckets, but i don't think he'll be able to lift it. Also looked at an electric actuator but have only found ones that are way more than i need ie with 200lbs capacities and $100 price tags. I was looking for one that can lift 10-15lbs with probably about a 4-6" stroke.
The Gaucho grande in the background is gonna be on hold for a little while, still coming up with ideas for that one.

update....

Added switches for lights, key switch headlight, strobes, taillights, Rollbar. I found that the Peg Perego John Deer Pedal tractor share a lot of the same parts. Tigerimports has lots of parts in stock for these but you have to look at the john deer model, thats how I found the roll bar.
I added led lights inside the rollbar light housings too.

wiring everything behind the dash.

Excellent work! It's almost like it was built to be modded. Love it.

Now since you've proven your skill with trailers, I want to see a hay bale trailer or some sort of farm implement.

update, get the tractor ready for snow. After struggling with weight and trying to track down materials I broke down and purchased a kids snow plow made by kettler, with a little modification to the tractor i got it on. Here are the results.
