Electric Lift question . . .

Recommended Posts

JimF
Anyone have any info on the electric lift option that was available back in 1980-'83 for my AC 914? Are they available anywhere? Does the electric motor merely power a hydraulic pump/system, or does it lift mechanically? Would it be difficult to install a unit? Is the motor subject to early burnout if used for snow plowing? (Seems like a lot of use/abuse to the motor if plowing.) Just gathering info-- maybe I really don't want an electric lift! It may be more trouble than it is worth, eh? --Jim

You can find them on e-bay quite often. They are actually a linear actuator, no hydraulics involved. They are quite easy to install and cost less than hydraulics in most cases. Many prefer the hydraulics for the power, but the electric is still nice over the armstrong method.

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
