Mower Deck Dilema!

Recommended Posts

I have a 42" mower deck that came on my 710 Allis. It now resides on my 917 Allis (the 48" shell from the 917 is a P.O.S.). The brackets that hold the deck rollers (the 2 that attach to the shell), have broken apart. Welding is a possibility, but the right hand bracket will have to be carefully refabricated. Has anyone out there ever put the newer style bail assembly from a 48" deck, on a 42" deck. Is it even possible to do? I've still got about an acre to mow, and was hopeful to get it done by Mothers Day.

Thanks for your time. I went to an Agco dealer this morning. They don't throw much away (God Bless them). They had the brackets I needed. Cost me only $15.00. I also got a complete 48" deck that used to be on a 918H. It's in really good shape. Also got a 42" Snow Blower, looks like it's never set outside. Both items were another $200.00. They wanted $300.00 for the deck, and $150.00 for the blower. I guess that 2 Ben Franklins did enough talking:D

      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
