Question for SmilinSam

Recommended Posts

While surfing the site, I came across your 7114H with a #370 Weedcutter. How is the weedcutter driven? From a front motor-mounted PTO or from from the center PTO? If it is driven from the center PTO, I am curious about the way it is driven. Any pictures or explanation would be appreciated.

I pirated a electric clutch off the front of a AC 416 and put it on the 7114. It drives just like the snowblowers that used the front PTO clutch in the mid 70's. .I took out the original engagement lever that was on the mower, drilled a hole in the top part of the hitch and mounted the spring tension setup just like the mid 70's snowblowers. When I get time I'll send Kent some more detailed pictures and description to add to that photo. I will also send a better description on how to build the sprayer caddy that is in the "Do it yourself section". It may be a while yet as I am really pressed for time for another two weeks or so. Thanks for asking, Sam
