Belt routing on the rare 4 blade weed chopper

Recommended Posts

I'm curious how the belts are routed on the rare front mount 4 blade weed chopper that I see at different places on this web site. With a little ingenuity, I can't imagine it'd be hard to build one of these, but powering it would be interesting.[A href='http://www.wheatfarm.com']http://www.wheatfarm.com[/a]

They are routed just like a snowblower for the older tractors with the exception that the drive pulley on the mower lies horizontally rather than vetically. Just like on the regular mower decks, the drive spindle has two pulleys. the top belt goes out to the PTO on the front of the engine. The bottom belt drives all the other spindles. You can still get photo copies of the original owners/parts manuals from Simplicity. I have mine modoified slightly to be used on a 7114 H with a front electric PTO. I always said I would not sell my "Weed Killer" setup, but who knows, a tall figure could speak loudly enough for me to hear. Sam
