Axle/differential For Powered Wheel Barrow/Wagon

I recovered a 9 HP Kawasaki engine from a JD RX75 riding mower on it's way to salvage. I know the engine operates. Would someone recommend a method to transfer the vertical shaft power to a horizontal axle and drive a DIY walk behind wheel barrow or wagon? I would like to make something to move stones for dry, rock walls. If you know an existing frame for a kit, that would work as well.

For something like that you would need a transmission as well as the differential/axle.

I think I would start with what you threw away. The axle and drive from the mower or something like it. Then a frame with a steer axle would give you a little platform to stand on. That would make a pretty neat little setup with a variable speed drive.

Thank You

marbobj,

Thank you for taking time to reply. Unfortunately, those parts were destroyed. I'll keep looking though.

the commercial powered wheel barrow I saw used the transaxle just like my riding mower, peerless in my case.
