700/900 series snowblower drives?

Recommended Posts

Was it ever factor to drive the snowblowers for a 700 or 900 series off the center PTO?? I know that the front cone clutch was factory, but I have seen them driven off the Center PTO clutch as well. Also, how hard is it to put and electric clutch on the front off a 700/900? Has anyone ever attempted this before??? Seems like that might be more practical scince the front cone cluch is harder to come by, and they are expensive to fix scince most of the peices are not avalible for it anymore. Thanks

I am a victim of CRS but here goes - Someone on the site sells a front hitch that allows for the running of a blower off the center PTO. I bought one from him and still can't remember who it was:( Dan aka IronPony

I think it was factory to drive the snowblower off of the center PTO for 900 series (except the first year or so). All you need is the proper one idler hitch and long belt. A 700 can be made to drive off of the center PTO but it is not factory, you will need the 900 hitch and a slightly shorter belt and modify at least one idler pulley on the PTO. If you put an elecric clutch on a 700, make sure you have an alternator that can handle the load (ie, not the trickle charge non regulated AC light circuit alternator on some engines of that vintage)

      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
