Anyone have an idea?

Recommended Posts

My father was visiting recently and we were talking about tractors. He told me he saw a simplicity years ago that pivoted in the middle and pivoted not like a large loader pivots but rather pivoted around the drive shaft to the right and left, if that makes sense. Any ideas or has anyone seen anything like this?

The old Broadmoors -- 707, 717, 727, 728, etc. pivoted in the center, as did the Allis B-207, B-208, and Homesteaders. I think the smaller Serfs and Yeoman models did also...

Well Tim here is how I did the one I got last year. Put straps and chains between two trees and pulled while pivoting it from side to side.

I've only run into 2 stuck pivots out of the 14 Broadmoors and Yeomans I have owned. The ones that were stuck were very rusty tractors to begin with so I expected them to be stuck. Also Brian, in case you didn't know but the Serfs, Yeomans and Broadmoors don't have a drive shaft. They are all belt driven but they are the only ones that had the pivot in the middle. Your father probably just assumed there was a drive shaft running through there. Tom

The Sovereigns do not pivot in the middle, the front axle does the pivoting.
