Tipping tractor on it's side for access.

Recommended Posts

richp
I am doing some hose routing under my 7119h and am having a tough time constantly crawling under it. Have any of you guys tipped your machines on their side for easy access? I did this before on my old 64 Landlord with no ill effects. The gas tank and battery are already off the tractor. I am not willing to drain oil out to do this, I'll keep crawling under before I do that. Any thoughts?

Rich, I don't know about tipping. But, I use car repair ramp to lift it 1' off the floor. Works real good. You can also build a wooden platform in which car ramps can be used in conjunction.

Simple7016 drained the fluids and then lifted the front end of his 916/7116 and then stood it on end so I could help him install a hyd lift attachment. A chain was connected to tractor and rafter to help maintain its balance. We did it in Sept of 06 and wrote a short thread on it. Simple is a weight lifter.

Yep....we drained the oil and she balances pretty well by itself. The chain was used for safety.

This image caught my eye - looks like a nice way to clean the mower deck at least on the small frame machines. Picture was taken from the 1970 catalog. Not sure how to safely get the front end up in the air though.

Hi, We sometimes tip units on their side. With batt out and fuel tank low enough it won't leak. We do it to pressure wash underneath. One thing. Take something and pinch off the fuel line, as the float doesn't work and gas may run through the carb. Al Eden

On the old 738 Simplicity recommended putting a 4x4 behind the seat and tipping it straight up like simpleton is doing. That is after removing the battery and having less than half a tank of gas. With the tractor in first gear, I could lift it myself to that position. Jack

      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
