616 Hydro tractor

Recommended Posts

I found a 616 AC tractor the other day and not sure what to think of it. It has a vertical shaft Briggs, belt drive Hydro. It is quite small in size which is surprising. Are these "real" AC tractors? It seems a little MTDish for lack of a better word. I think the vertical shaft is what throws me. Are they a good machine or did AC have a weak moment?

I have the Allis 616 Special, and as long as you throw chains & weights on the tractor, you would be surprised what it will push. I have a 3000 sq ft driveway, and it cleaned up a single three foot snowfall last winter in just under 4 hours -- with a blower and plow.

They have their quirks, like anything else, but they are far superior to a cheap "big box" mower. They don't have the same "bulletproof" feel that the older ones have, but like mentioned earlier, you will be surprised at what it can do. Andy

      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
