PTO Dilemma

Recommended Posts

In my search for a snowblower for my 7018 Simplicity, I came across a 912 AC with a blown engine (broken rod) and a nice 36" snowblower (plus 48"deck and 42" blade) for sale. The price was right, so I bought the package. My thought was that I could simply remove the front pto from the 912, mount it on my 7018, hook the blower up, and blow snow. However, the front shaft on the 912 is 1" and the one on the 7018 is 1-1/8", so this doesn't work out like I had hoped (never does). I have considered a few things: 1) I could get the 912 fixed; 2) I could attempt to trade someone the pto I have for the one I need; 3) I could modify the pto to fit my tractor by having it bored out to 1-1/8". #3 would be the quickest (and maybe easiest) to do, but I'm afraid of ruining the pto, and I know they are not all that easy to come by. I'm also not sure if this is even possible. Other than the size of the hole, are the pto from the 912 and 7018 the same? What are your thoughts???? DaveM

I could very well be wrong, but I believe there is a sleeve adaptor that when removed will fit the 1 1/8 shaft and if you have to go smaller you will have to make a sleeve. I believe it is the same clutch

There was no front PTO made for the 900 series. The blower was intended to be driven from the mid PTO on the 900 series useing a single pulley hitch. Some one installed a pto from a 3300, 3400, 7000 series on it. Most of the front PTO's for the 7000 series had a bushing so they could be installed on both the 1" shaft and the 1 1/8" shaft.

      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
