10 hp and vacuum attachment?

Recommended Posts

Is a 10 hp motor enough (in a FD) to run the vacuum/trailer attachment effectively? I realize they were originally sold that way. I'm considering purchasing one, just looking for a little real world experience from folks actually using the vacuum/trailer attachment. Do you wish for more HP, or is 10 normally enough if I don't get carried away and try to cut 6 inches of grass and chop up 3 inches of leaves at the same time? Thanks for the help, mike bennett

I just upgraded my 7010 (RBT) from a 10 horse to a 16 horse partly because I thought it was underpowered to run my 42" deck and vacuum discharging into a trailer. Most times it was okay but I have some hilly parts to my yard that gave it trouble.

      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
