any info on a 7016 simplicity?

Recommended Posts

The electric lifts aren't hydraulic. They use only a special switch that reverses polariaty on a small DC motor on a screw jack that takes the place of a hydraulic cyl. It makes an all electric system. It works well and they are fairly dependable. They will lift about as much as you want. The down side of these electric systems are you can't "feel" the attachments like you can on a manual or hydraulic lift.

I have both on my tractors. Never paid any atension to the feel or how fast one worked over the other. One different with the hydralic life it won't lift if you have the brake pedal forward to stop.

" The hydraulic lifts must have the engine running." not so on a FDT,:) I can lift the front of the landlord up just crankin the starter. from back in the good ole days when these tractor had 'live' hydro lift. Strange, I remember when 'live hydro' lift was a new selling thing on farm tractors.:D:)

I have a 712H with an electric lift.Nice with a mower deck,but I use a snowblade on this tractor most of the time.It gets complicated lifting the blade at the edge of the road,trying to steer,and moving the hydro lever at the same time.I would prefer a manual lift.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
