Simplicity mower on an AC 710 ???

Recommended Posts

If its off a B-10 It should be an Allis mower. I'm not totally sure if it will fit, but it should hook up to the front axle, you might have to find a belt the right size to run it though.

If I'm not mistaken, the height adjusters are too close together to go under the running boards. [:0] I'm not up on the 710, that is a horizintal shaft engine?? If its a vertical, the decks arent even close. :D

The mower should mount to that tractor, but I think the center pulley for the drive belt may be smaller than that on the mowers for the later model cone clutch type tractors (AC700 & 900 series). This may make the mower spin faster than it was designed. I'll try to check for you tomorrow. I have one of each type of mower.

Rod is correct... the center arbor driven pulley is smaller on the older B-10 deck. You'd need to swap pulleys to make it work correclty -- or you could run at about 3/4 throttle in a pinch. I put a 5" pulley on one to use with my hybrid HB216 with it's Sundstrand and cone clutch pulley.... As Dan stated, the adjusters are also closer together on the old deck. They might hit the running boards, but since I have no tractors with running boards :D I can't verify that...

Yes the adjusters do hit. That's why they moved them outboard. A late deck will run on an early tractor with the right wheelbase. But early decks whon't work without ditching the runningboards Also in both cases pulley size are different too.

Before you ditch those running boards, look for a newer parts deck. I have swapped rear adjuster assembly in smilar situation. Might have to drill a hole or two to make fit. Should also remove rod type foot rests from deck, they will hit also. Best swap the pulleys also as already mentioned, you can get some amazing blade tip speed; but also quite UNSAFE. Make sure parts are from 42" deck, I can't recall the differences from a 48".

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
