What's this hitch fit?

Recommended Posts


Not sure if anyone recognizes this front blade hitch for a specific model / series, or if it's a home-made one off?  If it's a custom fabrication, it's going on the scrap iron pile.  If it fit's some rare setup and someone can use it, I want to make sure I don't scrap it and get it in their hands.  The one hooked up to the blade is a standard large frame hitch.  This "odd" one has a double tab on each side, is shorter and has a very different lift bracket angle.  Small frame maybe?

I have one like that. I believe it is from the early models like 700/ 725, but the extra mounting tabs are added. Mine doesn’t have those. They definitely don’t work on the later models.

Looks like a modified FDT hitch where the front was shortened up.  

I say that because it looks very similar to this bent hitch I acquired many years ago:

      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
