Wide frame, narrow frame?

Recommended Posts

I've run into a difference for under tractor attachments that were made for a smaller tractor like a Broadmoor and larger ones like a Landlord. My Grader Blade had to be modified to fitt my Landlord. That may be what is meant by wide and narrow.

I recently purchased my first ("first" implies more will come) Simplicity 3416H from Jim Bute. Jim has some beautiful tractors for sale btw. But now as I look for attachments I'm seeing "for wide frame" an aweful lot. Whats a wide frame? What else do I need to know when considering an attachment for this tractor? And honestly, I'm not understanding the rear hitch. Is there a graphic somewhere that I can see the rear hitch in action? Thanks in advance to all that help bring me up to speed.

That's a Cub Cadet variation - I haven't heard it used with Simplicity models. Most attachments are brand specific except for universal tow alongs like dump carts, wagons, spreaders, sweepers, rollers ect. that only require a simple one hole hitch.

I think Simplicity refers to the larger line of tractors (7xxx) series as "Large Frame" in thier documentation. I hadn't heard a reference to wide/narrow frames in Simplicity tractors until your message.

Now that you mention it Tim, "large frame" may have been the term I was seeing. Ive looked at so many ads in the last week I dont know if I'm coming or going anymore. Btw, how does the 7xxx series compare to my 34xx series Sovereign? Is there interchangability between the two as far as attachments are concerned?
