Vacuum project #2

Recommended Posts

thmsdoyle

Designed my adapter chute fabricated it. The chute does have a curved diverter plate inside the chute to up feed clippings toward chute. My initial test run was about 20 minutes sucking up wet leaves. Worked well, I'm sure some gremlins will pop as I use it more. 

Now to decide what to do for my trailer collection portion of the project 

Here a few pics of the vacuum work I have done, hope you enjoy, I had a great time fabrication it up.

THanks TOm

The vac seems to be quite powerful. I had a boot built from my cardboard mockup (doesn't have a flow diverter in it) and still works well.  

Wish I was as handy as Thomas.  The boot I had built by a local  HVAC shop cost me about $55.00, but the vac I bought was worthless without it!

It does have higher left blades on it. The vacuum seems to pull debris out of chute nicely. 

What are your sources for high-lift, left-hand-discharge blades???

      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
