AC 416

Recommended Posts


Hey, I just bought an AC 416 today. They guy who had it before, rigged up a makeshift deck on it. I want to put a real deck back on it. I found a deck off of a 716 that the guy swears will fit. Can anyone verify this for me? I don't want to waste my time driving a few hours to look at it or buying it if its not going to fit.

Decks on the 300/400 tractors are right hand discharge. Deck off a 716 will be left hand discharge and they do not interchange. Hope that helps..And welcome to  the site.......Dave

it will not fit ,you need a right hand discharge, the 800 series will work I believe but depending on your location good 300/400 decks  they do turn up, just watch for rust thru at the front as this  is usually their  demise,

An OEM deck for you tractor looks like this (height adjusting lever not installed):


AC built Homelite Tractors used the same deck, which is why the above deck was repainted for use with my Homelite T-12 (height adjusting lever installed):

      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
