trying to mow my yard....not going well at all

Recommended Posts

I need to know what the correct size pulley runs the deck. Also what size pulley is needed to run the vac system. "the trailing type that is run off the right side of the BGB" Mine keeps clogging up with one pass in 2nd gear with a 9inch drive pulley on the trans. Before some one suggested it, I know gator blades will help! I just caint see that this is how they used to do it for years before gators came along. Sorry for sounding rude, but I'm a bit agitated at the moment! any help would be greatly appreacated! Elon

Well I swapped the vac pulley to a 2inch and now that is working great. Now the deck is still getting clogged. If I try to go too fast, the deck slows down. Oh now I'm running out of power. I just rebuilt the engine "new rings and gaskets". I'm not sure what is going on. When I first put the system on, it worked great for a wile. It seems the longer I use it the worse it gets.:(!:( I finally took it off and just finished mowing my lawn. If I wasn't soo mift, I'd go out and snap a pick of what I'm trying to do. Thanks for the sizes JJ. Elon

Also with all the rian we've had your clippings may have more moister in them and this would contribute to them sticking to the deck and outlet tube more than dry light clippings would.

A 7.25 to 8 hp engine running a 42" deck and a vac on top of that would tend to be underpowered for the tasks being asked of it. I used to have a 10 hp and tried running a deck and vac and I thought that arrangement was underpowered. Does it mow fine without the vac on? Powerwise I mean..

It has plenty of power running a deck. The first try, it powered both just fine. I mowed for about 10 min just fine. The only reason I stopped that day, was to make a baffle for the exit tube. "too much clippings were blowing out of the bragger box. What I'm doing here is to use a trailer vac set up off the back of a tractor. I made a hagger to hold a 35 gallon trash can off the back of the vac system hitch. The vac system seems to work well now, but I seem to run out of power to run both.:( Mite have to sell something to get a nice higher powered tractor!:D See Maynard I drank some ice tea and now I'm smiling!:D:D Thru all of this I got to thinking, that I have way too much stuff to keep going. I'm thinking of thinning the heard, so I can keep up on the matinace. I mite just get a better, more powerful tractor, to mow and blow snow, and keep the 64 for every thing else. The B1 and the two 725, mite be sent down the road. As I look around here, I'm starting to look like that yard that that old gezzer lived in from your child hood! I may have a huge liquidation sale real soon. I have a whole tent full of stuff, not too mention Kirks stuff is still here. I think my neighbors are starting to get concerned. Thanks for all the help guys. Elon

What I'm thinking about is a 3012, 2110 or a 2112. But then again, if I find a nice RBT real cheep, I mite just go that route. I'm even toying with the idea of a hydro unit[:0] God did "I" say that?????:D BTW I do own two RBT at the monent. The puller, and the 3310 that I'm putting the diesel in. Elon

Elon why not go all out and build a B-10 with a 16hp Briggs,hi-lo kit and hydro lift? You'd have all the power you need and take the strain off your arm too. And still have the right style tractor! Oh! And of course keep the Landlord for backup!

There are several directions I could go in. What the cheapest/quickest, and easiest is, I don't know. I already have a 9hp with hi/low, hydro lift and right hand lift lever. Problem is, that is my worker. I thought about swapping attachment with just that one tractor, but ............well I just don't want too.:D I'll figure it all out, now that the steam is gone from my head. lol:D Elon

Elon, if getting more HP is the biggest requirment to satisfie your needs for certain tasks then swap in the 16 from the 7016 to the landlord and you'll be looking for anchors to slow you down. :p That sounds like the quickest way to fix your problems. The other thing is the 7016 would make a great mower but then there goes the neighborhood.:D

Dave, the problem is, the 7016 isn't mine. It belongs to Rob-b. He got a a few months back and dropped it off here for me to get it going. The engine needs a total overhaul. I'm not sure if the hydro pump is any good, I did drive it around right after getting it running, but now it doesnt go any were. Mite just need fluid, but I'm not sure.

Jim, good thinking, but there was plenty of flow. Elon
