Broadmoor 717 drive and snowblower belts

Recommended Posts

I have a Broadmoor 717 and I am trying to replace the worn out belts. This tractor has 2 belts 1 for the clutch and 1 for the drive, the one for the clutch I know what size it is but the rear belt for the drive I have no idea. Does anyone know the correct size for this one? It's not listed in the reference or if it is I can't find it. And does anyone have a picture or drawing of which way the snowblower with the front PTO clutch is suppose to be mounted along with the belt mounting to this unit. I have put this new belt on but the rear pulley on the hitch seems to be at an agle so the belt wants to come off. I am now having to get a second belt because it keeps slipping off and turning it upside down from this pulley. Someday when it quits snowing I'll have this tractor ready to blow snow.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
