Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Simple attachments

Recommended Posts

I came across a cart for a 2 wheeled tractor a few years ago. I latched on to it because I had never seen anything like it before. It connects to the front of a 2 wheeled tractor like any other attachment and it has 2 caster wheels up front. It is heavy built and dumps forward. This cart had the casters welded so it could be pulled behind a riding lawn mower but that can be corrected Simply by grinding the weld of. I wonder who might have built these and if they are uncommon. I don't have any pictures but I suppose I should make a trek to the Old Home Barn and get a few some time. I have a 2 wheeled tractor with a newer 8 hp Briggs, I have a plow for a David Bradley that could be used with it, a couple old cultivator frames with some shovels a front blade and the tractor currently has a sickle mower on it. I hope to get this critter on my to do list and build or buy a sulky for it. Charlie

Kinda like a wheel barrow, It is rectangle shaped, not rounded. It is longer than it is wide and the front angles out like a wheel barrow. It is quit a bit smaller than any normal wheel barrow, maybe 12"x18" by 8 inches deep. It has a lining of concrete so I assumed it was used to mix and transport mortar.

        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
