Front dethatcher, what does it fit?

Recommended Posts

I picked this up out of a scrap pile and best I can figure is it fits some kind of JD rear engine set up?

I had planned on rigging it up to work on one of my tractors but have since got a tow behind ez-rake, so I think its time for this thing to go. It also appears there is a spot for some kind of lift rod or something to attach to which is missing. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Chris

Yes it mounts to the front of a push mower. I have a snapper one as well. Looks just like yours, just red. If you play with the brackets, you can get it under or in front of a Landlord. Flip the mounts around and it will do the same for a Broadmoor. Works great.

The John Deere dethatcher is 32 inches wide, too wide to be for a regular push mower. Here is a side by side comparison of the Deere to the Snapper dethatcher.

The mounts are different as well.

      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
