Re: rebuild hi-lo on Broadmoor-snow!

Recommended Posts

Well, we got about 3 inches of snow last nite here in New Jersey. Started the little old Broadmoor and she pushed pretty well, even without the low range! Did my 150 ft. rear driveway then did my brothers 400 footer without a problem. I'll see what happens when the bigger snows come.:D But all in all it was a nice Christmas present to it it do what it did. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

Well... The 3 inches in the morning yesterday turned in to about 8-9 inches by midnite that nite, and the old Broadmoor could'nt hack it. It drifted to well over a foot in places and she just did'nt have the "oomph" to do it. Better work on that hi-lo ASAP. By the way, I am still looking for a 2010 or 2012, pre 1968, in or close to New Jersey. If anyone sees or hears of one please let me know. Thanx!

Here's one, about half way through restoration. I'll be working on it again now that Christmas is past. I still have another week of vacation before I have to go back to work. http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=10303

I've been following your restoration when I can on your posts. Lookin good. Those 2010-2012 tractors seem to be eluding me. That was the tractor my Grandfather had and the first on I ever drove when I was about nine years old. Loved that old machine! One will turn up for me eventually. I still have my "keeper" 66 Broadmoor to finish up and a 717 to fix up and sell in the spring. Good luck on the resto- I'll keep watching!

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
