With the improvement from installing bearings on my steering I'm looking to install a electric deck lift I'm pretty sure my wife will like that and I would love to get rid of the lift lever.So what actuator do I need  for my 42" deck on this 7112

The lift kits are mfg#s 990658, 1690043, and 1690392; they are all pretty much the same.  The #1690392 is the "newest".   You can get manuals for them at the Simplicity Manual Site. 

It looks like this:


Plus the switch and wiring.

There is also some type of indicator pointer to replace the manual lift lever so you can get an idea of ram position.


They come up from time to time on E-bay, or post an ad in the wanted section.

After trying to find an electric actuator and seing how much it was going to cost and the speed of them .I called the gentleman who I got the snowblower from and when I was there I also bought chains off of a 7117h .Yesterday I called him and he said he would sell me the hydraulic lift system for around $180.My next question is  with a pump that is rated  max RPM is 3600 what OD. pulleys will I need and how many GPM should I get for this lift and down the road maybe power steering.

Good price for the hydraulic lift system.

The Sundstrand charge pump will handle both the hydraulic lift and PS - but you have to change the RVs in it.  Ask for the high pressure RV when you buy the lift.  See this recent post:

      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
