Does anyone know of any Mud Buddy dealers around Dallas? Or for that matter any mud motor dealers in the DFW area? Thanks.

BPS is it around here and that's sad. Good luck if your needing work done. PM me if you needing help with a motor, maybe I can help or send you in the right direction. If your looking to buy one, Guy has already helped with that.

When you own a mud motor you learn to fix them bc they will go down once a season

This is very true, I do not recommend anyone getting one if you are not mechanically inclined. If you run them for what they are designed for crap will break.

Don't listen to these guys.. Yes it is true, no one around the metromess will work on these motors, but never fear, Guy is here... I got business plans in place for "Guy's Mud Motor Shop", I'm going to hire the best mechanics in the metroplex, we will be offering premier mud motor services, opening next few months.... No one in the metromess market has such a service, I got the market cornered, my business model projecting $150k first year, double and triple after that, taking applications for mechanics, just send me a PM, got 2 spots open for now but will be hiring more in the future, offering stock options for my top notch "best in class" mud motor mechanics.. up

x100

If you weren't mechanically inclined, you will become so or you will be in the poor house!

Why are you set on Mud-buddy?

Have you looked into Pro-Drive or Gator-tail?

These seem to be the two go to brands in the mud motor world. I have a pro drive with over 350 hours. This mechanic talk must be for belt driven motors.

If you hunts stumps/mud go mudbuddy (belt slips when ya pop a stump)
If you hunt silt/mud go pro drive (gears don't slip so you power onto pad)

Both work..one will protect you better in obstruction laden waters..a belt. Only thing is, you have to make sure your belt tension is set properly. Its not a big maint issue. I check mine every year right before teal season starts and that's it. I have seen my fair share of PD lower unit chipped gear teeth and my share of broken belts from MB's and GT's. Nothing you can do about gears..they are what they are..meshed. But you can keep your belt at the right tension so that when your prop strikes an obstruction it will deflect and absorb the impact. Gears..ain't nothing absorbing nothing. IF you run gauntlets of rocks or HEAVY stump fields where you are constantly hitting stumps at full throttle ( don't mean the occasional stump encounter either) then gears are not your best choice. As far as mud/silt..regardless of which brand it's the length of outdrive that will win out each time. A longtail will kick every short tails azz in deep mud or hard bottomed areas...guaranteed. They are just slow and a biotch to handle.

Weighted back motors run best in heavy veg/mud, balanced motors run best in rocky terrain. I tell my customers to buy the motor matched to the terrain where they will run 80% of the time. It makes no sense to tell a guy to buy a heavy weighted back motor if he mostly runs rocks/heavy timber just like it makes no sense to buy a balanced motor if you are gonna run thick vegetation. For those looking to buy, regardless of brand, stop and really think what is the best for YOUR needs...not what everyone else tell you to buy. FTR, they all work and they all can break... I've worked on them all. Lotta coin for a "lawnmower engine" so do your due diligence
