7013 Shuttle into a B-110?

Recommended Posts

PhanDad
Is it possible to retrofit a 7013 shuttle into a B-110? Is is a bunch of work? Would the side plates have to be changed? (I think I remember reading that the longer side plates are required if you add a hydro to a B110 as Kent (??) has done.) With my hills, it's hard use a straight gear tractor when mowing the lawn. I love the way the B110 cuts and maneuvers, much better than the GTHL and better than the T12 - but the clutching between forward and reverse is a nightmare on the slopes. Is a shuttle drive the answer? I'd love to find away to make Dad's tractor usuable, or it may just have to go. :(

You could do this. You would need to use the B110 BGB to retain the belt clutch, since the 7013 is a cone clutch, or convert to the complete cone clutch setup for idlers and mower pulley. The side plates on the 7013 are 4 inches longer than on the B, so the fenders would be pushed to the rear by that much. You would also need to hook up a shuttle forward/reverse lever. Only thing this would give you is a 4 speed with a hand clutch. A shuttle is not variable like a hydro.

What kind of trouble are you haveing shifting on a hill? If the brakes are adjusted correctly and the drive belts and idler are correct, there should be little to no slipping backwards or hard jerking from the drive system.
