Missed out on a 7113 today

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for a tractor with a blade or blower on it to keep at my mothers house. yesterday I ran across a 7113 with a good mower deck and blower on it for $600 and it was 20 minutes away. I was stuck at work and it sold. Oh well. Today I see a guy that has a blower attachment for a 4211 for $250. It seems a bit high to me and I hear from the local Simplicity dealer that the front ends were a bit weak on the 4200 series tractors. Can anyone give me some advise on what I should be looking for. I'm not sure if I should persue the 4211 blower if the tractor isn't up to the job. What do you all think?

IMO, given choices I would certainly choose a 5xxx, 6xxx or better-yet a 7xxx series over a 4xxx tractor if you're going to be dealing with snow. The higher the series, the larger (and tougher) the machine. 4xxx are great little machines, and mow quite well, but IMO they're not big enough or heavy enough to deal with a whole lot of snow -- especially with a plow. Plowing requires weight for traction, and while snowblowers aren't as demanding on traction, they require HP and/or torque to lift and throw that snow... My two cents -- not trying to criticize any machine, only trying to help you "size" your needs...

My brother has a 4212 he put a 36" blower on it. Traction was a major issue. He ran v-bar tire chains, but no extra weight. If you'd lift the blower without being on the tractor the rear was so light it'd almost come off the ground.

      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
