LS axle in a 3000-series Sovereign

Recommended Posts

Newbie here again, can anyone explain the real-world effectiveness of the LS rear axle in an older Sovereign? If one had never been serviced up to this point, would it likely need to be re-built for it to be effective? I have a hilly and often wet property, just thinking if this feature would really be a benefit for me. It would be a GREAT justification to buy yet another old tractor!

Yes, very interesting! I've owned Cub Cadet and Wheel Horse tractors, and I don't believe EITHER had such a traction control device in the axle diff. Got stuck with each many times. Is this a Simplicity-only feature?

        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
