looking at a 716

Recommended Posts

I went and looked at a 716 today it mows nice . overall not the best tractor i have ever bought but comes with a 42 inch deck and blower 46 inch blade and the tiller setup. So now my question since i mostly use the k301 and k321 . when I tested this mower in his back yard it has a really nice cut but to me it seems like it had some viberation to it ? and I have had people tell me the 16 and 18 singal kohlers do have some viberation to them could someone tell me if they should or not. since my 916 when i use it it only goes in the garden anymore and it is rough so I am always bouncing around. and I can get this for 750.00 tomarrow or he is parting it out

I have a 716-6sp. Best tractor I every bought. I have a 718H that I am changeing back into a 716H for mowing. I personally like the 917 for tilling but really like the shorter and lower 716 for my hillside mowing. With a deck, blade and tiller, if i needed another, I'd buy it.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
