finished bucket

Recommended Posts

Figured I would build another bucket. This time I mounted a 12v motor to tilt bucket out and back. I still needed a locking pin to hold it in the up position. I prefer hydraulic ram dump style like on my last one but don't want to mount a large ugly valve on the tractor. If I can ever find a small compact valve maker, I would go back to that style.






This setup works really well. Better than I originally thought it would.

Nice set up! Do you have any plans with measurements, material list etc? I think I could talk my son into building one for me. Is this one on a large frame, 7000/700 series tractor? Thanks for any info you can give. Dan aka IronPony

Nice job. Looks like it should work great. Tractor looks like a 7117 converted to a 16hp Briggs. Love the paint job;) I mounted the same Carlisle tires on my rims. Going to use them this winter for blowing snow. I wonder how an electric lift would work for dumping the bucket??

I got the gear motor from Grainger. It has a like 230:1 reduction, but it moves the bucket plenty quick. As for bucket dimensions, I just peeked at some of the other buckets on this site. I think a electric lift actuator might work as long as it has enough travel. Those actuators have more than enough power to dump the bucket and might not even need the lock.

The bucket is a great demonstration of engineering and metal working skills. The bucket is kind of overshadowed by the tractor, though. The tractor is eye-popping nice. What is it? It looks like probably a Sovereign 7116 with Briggs, hydro and hydraulic lift? Is it one of those last ones Simplicity came out with when they reissued the Sovereign? Why is it that color, did you repaint it? (I like the color). Looks like Carlisle Tru Powers on the back and X-Tracs on the front. The exhaust stack is excellent. At the end of the day is the tractor a custom restoration you produced in your shop?

It's a 1979ish 7119 that I bought with a 16 hp Briggs in it. I prefer the orange hoods so thats how I painted it. It's kinda a test mule that I try different things on. Tonight I ripped out the steering assy to start mocking up my power steering components. So far my only concern is gas tank clearance. If I shift it too far forward, I will have to relocate the hood filler hole forward. I am trying to keep it all a bolt on setup.

      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 
      Paul
