New to me Sovereign

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I just purchased a 1977 Sovereign 7010. It came with a snowblower and all seems to be in great working order (we'll see how the clutch is when I start digging into some snow). I searched the forum and the web and cannot seem to find what attachements will fit on this tractor. I would love to find a bucket that will fit it, and I don't mind one that needs a little modification. Anyone have a good resource for me to find out what my options are? Thanks in advance, Matt

I also have an interest in a small bucket for my rather similar tractor - an AC 716H. The only feasible and economic solution I know of is to fab up a bucket, perhaps using a small snow blade (or something similar) with sides and bottom added, and then using a small electric winch to raise and lower. I can't link you to any specific articles on how to make it happen; but I know it has been done. One of these days I will pursue it. My property needs soil or fill in several areas, and the idea of wheelbarrow and shovel just is too labor intensive. But a little bucket could keep me playing all day - and that would be really fun seat time, as well as productive. Note this is not the same as a frontend loader; this is a light duty solution. Ground clearance in raised position would be merely adequate - getting soil from the pile to where it's desired, without a lot of labor, is the name of the game - and that can be done a little bit at a time - which is also safer, and avoids having to reinforce the front end, etc. Keep it small and simple.

A simplicity bucket is exactly what I am looking for. A used Johnny bucket would be nice. I can't see paying $1500 for a bucket for this tractor ( I think my wife might be a little unhappy about that). Do you guys ever see Simplicity buckets around for sale?

        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
