Went out to clean up the packed snow in the drive so I lowered the skid shoes on my Broadmoor 728 and adjusted the lift rod so I could lock the lever to put down pressure on the blower it seemed to be cutting right though it. Buuutttt....My last pass I thought it was steering hard like a flat tire...well I wish it was.....upon closer inspection I knoticed that the front axle is broke almost in half...right next to the tube that the wheel spindle goes through.... Anyone else seen this?I just wondered if thats a week point on these Broadmoors because I have looked at some Broadmoors over the last couple years that was for sale and I think at least 3 of them had been welded up right in the same spot where mine broke...

What parts??I don't have a extra frame for a 728...The earlier tractors (707,717 ect) have different frames...My other 717 is ready to go other than a battery and swapping weights, chains mounting my seat back on...LOL

Well it was too dark to really see good last night but I think it just broke at the factory weld so I will probably just weld it back up...Too bad I have my welder in the back behind everything,LOL
