Hello, I read somewhere, that a    -1 5/8ths muffler clamp will reinforce the axle tube,  when the tractor is used for pulling . maybe someone else will chime in?


Thanks Ken inMI

I'd use a split collar like he has there, but bigger, to clamp around the axle tube before I'd use a muffler clamp. Much stronger and gives more even support. And looks a LOT better :-)

I have never seen a tractor break the axle on the left side. In my experience the tube breaks at the keyway broach on the right side.

Maxwood; Ken, here is a pic of clamps I put on the axle tube of my  BigTen. I replaced the tube with a used one many years ago. I put the clamps around the area that broke on the old one to reinforce the keyway to stop the cracking from happening. It has done the job for at least 9 years now and I use this tractor for mowing, tilling and snow blowing.

      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
