I measured my 7010 front brackets. 11.25 inches between the centers. you might be able to adjust those weight brackets with a fire wrench... or, cut off the old ones and weld new ones on to fit your tractor.

I dont think they fit the Broadmoors as the ears on the tractors I have (717,728,4211) are approx 8 inch.I did not get a exact measurement this morning but I know it was not anywhere near the 11in. that you say these are.Plus I belive the factory front weight I have for my Broadmoor has a place to ad the donut (collar) weights on each end.I am not 100% sure about being able to ad the collar weight to it without looking again but I think you can....

Well I was told today by the dealer these weights were for the 4000,5000,6000 series if you had a bagger on the back.. But mowerman1193 says his 4211 isn't close to the 11 inches center to center between the tabs... so I'm not sure.... I will alter one to use on my tilling tractor and sell the other...

I have a question on front couterweights: I have one for my landlord 101. It has (in addition to the two mounting arms) a third arm that comes up and sticks in line with the lift lever on the right hand side of the tractor. Is this to put a cable through and use the weight as some kind of assistance when lifting attachments? I dont know what else the third arm could be for. Could you guys help out?

Wow! They must be pretty heavy. I thought they looked like they were made from a piece of 3 or 4" steel pipe and then filled with something. I'll try to remember to measure the spacing on my B and let you know. Steve

Steve,They really dont seem like they are that heavy when you pick them up and carry them around but it sure is a pain trying to hook them on the tractor and get a pin through it LOL. If I remember right the one for my Broadmoor is 27lbs.

If the offer still stands I'll buy one of them. I can send the money now, could you wait until this summer for me to get it? My folks are in Hastings. I also have a three belt blower to get then from Roy who also lives out that way. BTW, Roy could you PM me again, the old PMs got deleted and I lost the info.....

No......I'm afraid I dont have any front mounting attachments. Wish I lived up there in Cheeseland near you fellers!!! I could probably pick up some good junk from the scrapyards. However, I'm stuck here in banjoland, with few simplicity supplies around for the pickins........

Stinkie, Somewhere on this site, there is a description and plans for building a lift rod from an electrical ground rod. (I think). Been going to give it a try myself, but I've still got to fix the hacked up dozer blade I'm using. Steve

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
