That would pull stumps in the redwood forests! Too cool. Well, that is if it was properly built. Like pulling the Budweiser wagon with a shetland pony...only in reverse. Anyhow...cool post!

exactly right. The hydro is made to use so much torque at 3600rpm tops, right? At 3600rpm I don't think it matters if you have a 30HP or 330HP engine, the hydro will only pass on so much power. (unless it lugs your 12HP at 3600RPM but I don't think it does). If you wanted to compete with it you might be tempted to spin it at 7200rpm and see if it blows up, but at 3600rpm that tranny can't pass on more than design HP. unless you boost the pump pressure. :DI want to plow with that thing. V8 at idle. -Don

      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
