Adapt older tiller to Conquest

Recommended Posts

I have been told by a dealer the older tillers cannot be adapted to hitch/operate on my 2002 Conquest 16?. Know I would need a 36" model to cover tracks. Have tools, mechanical ability (or so I think) and a machine shop close by for harder projects;). I owned JD for years but decided to purchased a new Conquest w/snow blade, 44" deck, and turbo bagger 1/03 b/c of what I thought was a tougher made machine (although perhaps not as refined as a deere). Now I am hooked and am looking for an older Simplicity or AC as a winter or 2 winter project (experience rebuilding JD 208. My priority is a tiller but I don't want to pay $1600 dealer asking price for a new one when I think I can purchase , rebuild, and adapt it for alot less. Thoughts?

One of the kits that you will need is Mfgr. No. 1686931 and there is another for the hitch that mounts on the tractor. Take the number and go here http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/techpubsearch.php and you can download the manual. All Prestige tractors are hydraulic lift. But the kits are for both the Prestige and the Conquest tractors. Also look at this post it has all the numbers that you will need http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=35635 .

      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
