Fun in the dirt

Recommended Posts

My Dad recently had a cement retaining wall put up and some dirt needed to be moved closer to our wall and sloped out to the yard.

[img] So I got out the B110 and the front blade, worked some of the loose stuff closer to the wall, then got to packed dirt and had to run the cultivator through to loosen more dirt up. Next I got out the brinly box blade, took off the ends and scarifier, used it as a grader rear blade and I was impressed. With a rear blade you don't get all those tire tracks behind you.

So I thought I'd adjust my old cultivator, an older style brinly "V" type. A guy gave it to me just to get rid of it a few months ago, but its missing three shanks. I thought it would work more like a ripper but had trouble getting the lift chain adjusted so it wouldn't drag but at the same time would lift up. Still not bad for a freebie:D [img]/club2/attach/Chris727/ripper1.JPG[/img][img] [img]/club2/attach/Chris727/ripper2.JPG[/img][img] More updates to come as I try to get everything smoothed out, Dad says we might get a load of topsoil for me to spread out too^

Though I know there are some advantages to a rear blade over a bellt mounted grader blade, seems too me that project justifies getting one. The control is so fine on the grader blades as its less affected by any rise or fall of the front or rear of the tractor. Looks like your haveing productive fun though so enjoy.

Comet66, Yes it is fun to use the variety of implements, but kind of a pain to switch them around. Eventually I plan to install rear lift on my 7016S and AC710, so I can have a tractor with each implement ready to go. I'm thinking of retirng and restoring the B110 but can't imagine not being able to use it, its my most versatile machine.

In the last picture with the cultivator try moving the lift chain connection point back farther on the cultivator this may help the lifting and engaging problem you talked about.

      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
