Decal schemes for Powermax series 60" mower decks

Recommended Posts


I'm getting  ready to restore a Powermax mower deck and want to use original decals. Most of my mower decks are repainted and missing decals so I searched through my saved photos to find factory correct examples. Apparently many decal schemes were used through the years. Here is a summary of 12 different decal schemes found on what appear to be original decks. I tried to include only schemes where I found at least two matching examples.
* All Allis Chalmers tagged decks are white.
* Most Simplicity tagged decks are orange but some are white.
* Early 4040 decks have straight deck leveling arms. All other decks have curved deck leveling arms.

It would be interesting to see which decal scheme (decals and locations) is the most common. It would be great if those of you with an original deck could respond with the Deck No. from the photos below that match your deck. Or, maybe there are other variations that aren't listed here.

      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
