Bagger question

Looking into buying a 7012 with a most of a bagger setup, another snow plow and the anti-scalp gear of a deck. But my main question is, is it an actual simplicity setup and is enough of it there.

The trailer and panels are Simplicity, bonus for the tailgate being there.

Vac unit looks right, the plow looks like early FDT style hard to tell for sure in pics.

You will need hoses, a deck boot, and cover.  But you could just start with screen and plywood to enclose the top.

Good to know! How hard is the boot to find if the seller doesn’t have it.But i’m not going to complain if its gone if getting this package at what I think is a good price.

In my experience it's not easy to find a boot for this "old school" collection system  (the turbo vac setup is the newer version). 

The deck boot is deck size specific.

At one point I took one of the often missing deflector and cut it and fitted a generic boot to it.

Never did get to weld it together, but it worked until the pop rivets loosened up.

By then I had found the correct one.

 

There are different boots for the 42" and the 48" decks.

The FDT boots were metal, think all the RBT boots were plastic

A good tin knocker should be able to fab one.  Check with an HVAC shop that makes duct work.  Cost could still be an issue since it's a one off.

I don't know the sizes or configuration, but could flexible couplings and drainage pipes and elbows be adapted?

I'm sure I'll figure something out,because i've wanted a vac since i saw one in the back of the operators manual.

I was thinking about saving it but the 716 is my pride and joy so it will be sacrificed and the trans relief valves are very stuck.

Trans valves can be unstuck with soaking and patience. Pull from trans, soak in fluid of your choice.  might need to use a pin punch also to tap the ball inside loose.

I have used HVAC round ducting for the tubes and elbows in the past also.

The boot would have to be fabbed or adapted.

I have a 42” but don’t know how I would get to you, but if you could get me some very good pics I might be able to fab up something.
