AC Hb 212 compares to Simplicity ??

Recommended Posts

going to look at a 48" deck for use on an Hb 212. The deck is AC yellow and apart. I see lots of Simplicity tractor/deck numbers in the technical info,  but can anyone tell me which Simplicity compares to the Hb 212 so I know if the deck is correct, and I can then find out sizes on the PTO and crossdrive belts.

 

Thanks.

Thanks Nick.

For some reason I can't see the picture you sent.

The mule drive driven pulley is 4". When you take the deck picture, can you check this pulley size so I know whether the mule drive is correct for the tractor?

Thanks.

Any yellow deck will work under an hb212.  Any orange footdragger deck will too. 3212H is the direct equivilent to the hb212 but the 3012, 3112V, 3112H, 3212V and 3212H all used the 48" deck.  You can also use a deck from a 3300 series RBT since they used the same mid pto.

Does your HB212 have the double v belt mule drive pulley?

Most of the HB212, B212, and Simplicity 3314 with the 48" deck used the double v belt to drive the deck.  Most of the simplicities 3000 series used the single belt.

Spare PTO's are plentiful...I'd find a deck you like and if you need the single PTO pulley to match, it should be easy to find free or close to it.

My deck I just bought is kinda knarly, but I think I can make it work. Something dropped on the discharge end some years ago -  bent it up bad, must have broken the arbor out as a piece of the deck is missing and arbor has been welded to deck. Mowed rocks too I think as rear edges of blades are mostly broken off. Belt covers are from a 42" mower as those were all we saw available. Don't fit, but maybe some big washers can help hold them down!

      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 
      Paul
