AC713S in its Work Clothes

Recommended Posts

I took my AC713S to GOTO. Several people that I talked to there did not appear to believe me when I said that it was going to become my primary lawnmower. Here it is on display at GOTO.

Last Saturday I installed the new hood decals that I purchased from Sandy Lake at GOTO. On Sunday I hooked up the 48 inch mower that I rebuilt last summer and had been previously using on My AC716H. After that I mowed the lawn with the 712S. Here is a picture taken just after I finished mowing the lawn.

It will be put to work tomorrow to cut the grass again. If anyone thinks this is a stock photo from somewhere else, then check out the air cleaner and the exhaust. Have you ever seen those on a stock tractor? This shuttle tractor does a great job of mowing, but I like the speed control of the hydro much better than the gears of this shuttle.

For those of you interested in the exhaust, there is a Cub Cadet muffler mounted under the hood. The chrome tip is actually mounted to the hood but lines up with the pipe when the hood is closed. A Nelson muffler would also work with this setup, if I had one. Cub muffler was laying in the garage when I built this tractor. This tractor was not a restoration. It was a resurrection. I did not get it as a tractor. Got a frame, got a front axle, got a hood, got atranny, etc. Mostly parts that were being thrown away. Finally, one day I looked at the pile of junk lying behind my garage and I began to see a tractor. After nearly two years of working on it once-in-a-while, it if finally complete. Next project is a restoration of a Simplicity 7116.

      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
