Hitch

Didn't get a chance to try it yet, 1" bar, tempered it after I drilled holes, may have to add a gusset? Small forge, belive they call them rivet forges. kind of nice doesn't take much room. More work than a torch, But a lot more fun. j

Be careful with that much length sticking out the back.It can cause some bad wheelies. I have one that was made out of a old tiller frame but it will lift the front wheels with to much weight.

Nice work! How did you do the tempering? And yeah, this is a rollback menace as ka9bxg said. It's well above the axle. Kinda looks like its own wheelie bar however, but I still wouldn't want to be on the tractor if the trailer got hung up and it flips back far enough to dig that hitch into the ground. Even if it won't roll back on top of you it's going to be a rough ride.

      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
