Gent in the area has this for sale-ish.
He thinks the old tractor was around 8hp and a lawn mower instead of a GT.
The width is 30", the pulley is parallel with the auger and the width of the mount brackets is around 10.75"

He is entertaining offers. I can store it for someone, any idea what is a non offensive offer and what it would fit?

Looks like for a Simplicity walk behind or an early 725. Good Luck, Rick

   definitely simplicity, I would need to see the hitch better to tell what it is from. most likely an early 70's garden tractor.

He was pretty sure it was smaller than a true GT.  I think I remember seeing it in his yard years ago... seems to me that it was about like the pics of the little 720's or 717's i am seeing.

I think they would work real well for sending the leaves elsewhere!

I supposed it could've been a later serf... To many years since I've seen it.
The front width is close to 30". The two smallest sizes I see anywhere is a 27 for the serf or a 32 for the yeoman.

I think the Broadmoor blower is a 32" as well. I don't have a blower for my Homesteader and as far as I know, the Broadmoor version is the same. If it's cheap enough and complete I might be interested. There's not a lot of demand for the small frame implements and I've seen a Broadmoor blower locally that looked like new struggle to bring $75 so I wouldn't be willing to go very high on that one.

Yup, it's a smallframe Simplicity 32" blower.  The early type had that neat styling with driftcutters...it actually predates the flathood Simplicity's.  A Serf blower would be about 5" narrower and has the more common Simplicity shape.  That blower will work on most any Simplicity/Wards/AC/Homelite(Simplicity built) small frame tractors 1963-1978.

 

Here is a clip of my AC version playin around...they work great, but aren't all that highly sought after.  $50-100 blower here, if complete.

Nice unit. Thanks for the info.
Any particular reason why this one measures 30"? Did they "inflate" the width?
