Drive belt for Mackissic

Recommended Posts

UCD
Hate to say it but Simplicity doesn't list a belt # for it. I would take the belt and got to a Farm supply store and have it measured and buy a good quality equipment belt not a fractional HP belt.

Maynard, I talked with MacKissic's old gentleman. He said it was a 5L 70H belt 5/8" by 87" I just picked up the gates belt 6987 lets see if that works strange he gives me 5L 70H but says its 87"?

I just bought a new belt for mine not long ago, but I do not have the measurement handy to me at this time. It makes a difference (in length) if your using a variable/hydro or a straight 3 speed. I think that I used a piece of string to get a rough measurement. As soon as I have the belt # I'll put it here.

Ambler, Do you have the pulleys that came with it? I bought one and didn`t get them with mind when I bought it, so I made this idler from a tiller idler bracket that i straightened out then I bought a torsion spring part number 1707593 that goes on a 36" tiller mfg. no. 1691978. I made this setup because I could engage it from the cone clutch (another reason I like RBT`s). If you need measured drawings of the pulleys that are used on FDT`s let me know and I can either email them or post them.

I did get it with pulleys for FDT and I was lucky that the HB212 had a second pulley. I'll see if I can get a pic. I would like to make a set up for a RBT. I just acquired a trailer mounted unit for mounting on a tractor.

I thought I would share this. Picked up another Mackissic with the chipper. Motor didn't run, but who cares. Only one way to test it mount it up.


I'm going to mate it to this from a shredder.

Well it looks like you have to change the mackissic drive pulley. Looks like simplicity chipper uses a 5" 5/8s pulley and with engine its a 6" 1/2 pulley. Roy I have two trailer mounted chipper/shredders, one runs and the latest that I haven't messed with the engine. I also picked up a simplicity shredder no chipper to get my hands on the mount and pulleys. Now I'm doing phase two.

Shaft on chipper shredder is 1 3/16". Shaft on Shredder is 1". Original driven pulley on my Simplicity Mackissic is 5.5" with type B Belt (21/32). Original driven pulley on my Engine driven Mackissic is 7" with 1/2" belt. Picked up a 5.5" Browning cast pulley with 1 3/16" split taper bushing. Pics to follow.

First split the trailer


Then mount hanger on chipper shredder, note I left trailer wheels on Mackissic.


Here's a detail of new pulley, belt etc.


HB212 Yard mule with front hitch and chipper shredder, think I'll mount grader blade as well.

John This will save you a trip Technical Tips & Articles Chipper/Shredder grinder Hitch Drawing http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=65365


I also have the rear wheels on one of my shredder grinders and on my chipper shredder. The are so much easier to move around and hook up. This is also the same hitch that is used with the 5KW 110/220V Alternator.


Also used to mount a pump

      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
