Peco vac "got it home"

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at getting a Peco vac system. I want to download an owners manual for it. Dose any one know the model number to these? Well I got my Peco vac system. I hooked it up and gave her a try yesterday. I must say I'm pretty impressed with the way it works. Emptying the bag is no picnic, but I can mow my whole yard and only have to empty it at the end. I was a bit nervous that the 12hp would run out of power, with the 42inch deck, the Peco, and powering the hydro trans, but it did very well at 3/4 throttle.

Kent, you are right, it was made for a cone clutch. I converted this B112 to hydro, so it has one now. Here are a few more pictures of it off the tractor.

Not sure if these are what you wanted, but it's still off the tractor, so if you want more, just ask!;):D

Thanks! That is exactly what I wanted. I was curious what they used for a blower wheel. Very interesting. The only other I have seen the inside of was much newer one that used a 5-blade fan of some polymer or other. This looks like two paddles clamped to the shaft. Are they aluminum do you think? Also curious as to approximate rpms they spin that at? Close to engine rpm I would think by the size of the pulley? Thanks again for the pics sm01 Matt

      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
