I am at a loss

Recommended Posts

I am trying to come up with an inexpensive weight for the back of my 314 for snowplowing, and I am at a loss. I have an old odd shaped tractor weight that weighs 75 pounds, and I have about 80 pounds of free weights(weightlifting weights). I don't want to put too much weight on the sleeve hitch, because it is an electric lift. I was wondering if anyone had an ingenious idea to help me out.

The weight is acting as a counter balance and will actually help the electric lift in raising the plow and the plow weight overcomes the counterweight when lowering the blade. Soome one here had a 12" weight bar plugged into the hitch and used the weight lifting collar to hold the round weights on.

Here's the rear weight on my 2110. It uses a battery that would just be sitting all winter. Has plenty of power, so the tractor always starts, even on the coldest days. It uses a welded together box, that unbolts from the tractor. A little unorthodox, but it works.....8D

mount your barbell weights onto a rod and put them into the lift mount as depicted in this photo http://www.simpletractors.com/images/b_attachments_images/rear_wght.jpg 60-70 pounds would be acceptable

Well I have solved my dilemma, I have used an old pair of handle bars for a mountain bicycle. I drilled a hole on the tube, and slid it into the sleeve hitch and put a pin in it. I then installed my weights on the handle bars. Kinda crude but it will. I thank all of you for your responses, they helped me a great deal. work.

Here is a picture of my "one of a kind" counterweight I use on my B-112 to counterbalance my snowblower or blade. My dad made it out of two flywheels, susposedly one from a Model A and the other from a Model T. I never weighed it, but I am guessing it is around 100#.

I don't believe that is the case with the 300 series tractors with electric lift. Front, center and rear attachments are all lifted at the same time. The 300 series tractors with manual lift do have the counter balancing effect. When the front attachment is lifted the center and rear attachments are lowered. See page 5 in this manual: http://www.simplicitytechpubs.com/6767PRINT/PDF_files/TP_100_1503_00_SV_A.pdf

      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
