Dealer prepping a new B-110

That was neat to watch...

 Kind of surprising how much dealer assembly  and adjustment there was.  A window into a slightly slower (Less rushed) time. I suspect back then most of these tractors were ordered and delivered, instead of being on a lot or at a dealer like most mowers are now.

That's also probably the only time you get to work on it with no rust or dirt of grease or grass all over it!

I'll have to try that pick up the mower with the left hand while standing, and insert the pin with the right. Somehow that seems like it was easier on the video than in real life...

Thanks for posting the link.

I wonder if my cousin (an Allis Co salesman at the time he got my Dad the B-110) did all the prep work?  Tractor was ready when I went to pick it up.

I can do that with a 36"but it's tough with a 42". I usually use a 2x4 under the leading edge as a cheater device.

      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
