Mower Blade Questions

Recommended Posts

leeave96
The Prestige is cutting GREAT! Removed the plastic discharge chute and added and anti-blowout kit. Ridding the chute allows the clippings to blow and scatter much better and the anti-blowout kit pretty much keeps the grass from piling-up on the top of the deck as it did prior to adding it. But - the mower does NOT sling those clippings quite like the John Deere it replaced! Looking at the stock blades (this is a 3 blade, 44" deck), they don't have quite as much lift (the portion bent-up at the rear of the blade) as the JD blades. My question is - does Simplicity make a high lift blade? I thought that perhaps when one adds a bagger, they would retro fit the blades with something that gives the grass a bit more push out of the deck. What about those Gator blades? Just courious, thanks in advance, Bill

They have a high lift blade that goes with the 44 inch mulch kit that they sell but you could by the blades seperately. I have never had discharge problems with the 50 inch deck that is on mine. How tall is the grass before you decide to cut it? The Gator blades seem to stay sharper longer, seem to be quieter but don`t seem to throw the grass as far as the stock blades. Simplicity also has a Elimnator blade that does an excellent job of mulching but at $22.00 to $25.00 a piece seem a little high priced and seem to be made out of soft steel.

There's no real problem with mowing - the machine cuts great! Haven't been able to get any real stripes yet, but I think that is more due to the quality of grass being cut. About every other week or so, we cut grass at a camp - and you'd expect the quality of cut to go down, though that really hasn't happened - so far so good! I'd like to look at the mulch kit and a bagging kit for the Prestige on the Simplicity parts viewer. Would anyone have part numbers for those? Thanks! Bill

The mulch kit that you need is part number 1692884 if you go to this site http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/techpubsearch.php and put in this number you can download a manual. If you go to this link http://simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=32437 it will tell you how to navigate the simplicity site. And you can sort thru the manuals and find the bagging system for this machine. I don`t happen to have the numbers for the bagging system.

      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 
      Paul
