Tire question

Recommended Posts

That's widest you can use and you could probably use a 24" diameter 10.50X12. mower is the limiting factor! Using tiller larger diameter would be a negative, due to faster ground speed

You need different rims for 26 X 12 - 12. 8.5 and 10.5 tires have an approx 7" rim width and the 26 X 12-12 has an approx 8" rim width and the 26 inch tire have a wider profile when inflated which almost causes an interference with the PTO pulleys so the mounting face of the rim has a shallower dimension pushing the tire away from the interference point. Simplicity offered those tires in the 3000 series tractor, but finding parts book info in them is a closely guarded secret. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=120736&SearchTerms=Tale+of+two+tires

The mower decks are not designed to be run in the "up", "transport" position. If you do, usually the drive belt will fail. The deck and drive system are designed to mow with the back rollers on the ground.

That's the one short coming of the left discharge, deep Simplicity/AC decks, max cutting height is about 3"; you're lucky if you can get the 3 1/4" "spec" cutting height.

Thanks Bill, I guess I'll have to go to plan b.(Not sure what plan b is yet)Gary

I mow a 2 acre field about 3 times a year. Over the 36 years we have lived here I have mowed that field with a HB212, 712, 917, all with 48" decks in the transport position and I have never had a belt problem. My belts (non-simplicity) last for 10 years or more.

My 7016H came with the paperwork, and on the recept it says “7018 tires” I dont remember the size right now, but they are bigger than normall. They are Firestone Turf and Field. They are loaded. Is this rare?

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
