New drive belt, tractor like new

Recommended Posts


Guys, my 6216 tractor decided it had enough of me pulling back the clutch/brake pedal every time the tractor slowed down going up hill to get it up the hill. The drive belt snapped this weekend and it was a blessing in disguise.  I finally put the new drive belts on the tractor and it could climb a mountain again.  Funny thing is that I still couldn't finish mowing the lawn as I went to put the mowing deck back on and I saw a split in the belt 7/8 through ( the only replacement belt I didn't have).  So just grabbed a beer and cruised around my property letting the tractor rip up and down the hills and just sitting back drinking my beer.  Mowing belt is on its way but tractor hasn't run this good in a while.

Sorry just had to tell someone, wife doesn't quite understand my elation.

Glad to hear your success story!  That drive system is great when it is working properly.  I don't mow with mine but i do snowblow with it, the vari-drive is nice for that.


Have fun!

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
