Does the 17 GTH-L Sunstrand have the same capabilities as the 7117? It does not seem as beefy as the 7117. Also the limited slip does not appear to work as well as the 7117 although the 7117 had wheel weights on and the 17 GTH does not. This comparsion was noticed when mowing lawn and have somewhat of an incline to traverse. Both have same type of tire. Also was wondering if Sundstran would have enough capacity to run loader? Would have to add second valve. Would unit out of Power Maxs fit in place of original? I would like to have built in system to run loader. Also was thinking of mounting auxilary pump permantely on front Pto.And mount set of valves on seat pan. Cannot find decent spot for supply tank. There is an loader on E-Bay that appears to have pump and supply tank mounted on rear hitch and probably driven by rear pto. Would be fine when loader is on, but thought if I had auxilary pump I could try powering different attachments. Probably dreaming again. But it does occupy my time.

The 17 GTH-L and the 7117H are basically the same tractor. The limited slip one the 17GTH-L might not be working properly. You can not run a loader off from the Sundstrand hydrostatic. The pump and fluid reservoir do not have the capacity to handle the job. You will have better luck with an auxilerery pump on the engine SmilinSam did a very nice conversion to one of his tractors using a pump mounted to the front of the engine with a modified grill. It looked factory built.

      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
