What did the new  front axle come from?

I know what it came from, but will Alan admit it! 

 

Guy said 200 something JD

HE DID!!!!! John Deere parts on a Roper!!!! I always knew you had some green and yellow blood in you Alan, whether you admit it or not.  :smilewink:  :poke:

 

Looks good buddy, job well done! I'm excited for you and can't wait to see it at Plow Day next year.  :thumbs:

Everyone gets a bout of insanity once in a while. I used a Ford part once on a Chevy, but then I came to my senses  :rolling:

If it goes to PA Plow Day, it will prob just be for show. I would have to take to much rear weight off it to get the three point on it.

The 1" axel and the wider, safer stance makes the abuse and therapy worthwhile.
I did the minimum modifications to the Roper so I can put it back later.

Alan, it appears to be bushing only in the entire pump, so not designed for side load application, but neither is the pump I've been running for years on my Massey with FEL. I run a 5/8 wide belt, but keep it just tight enough not to slip, which isn't tight at all, in fact, just snug enough to straighten the belt.  Never had a problem yet. I went 5/8 instead of 1/2" wide belt just to increase the grip area to prevent slipping being I don't run it at a typical tightness.


ALL of these sears loaders seem to have come with the bushing pump.
Cost saving measure from Kwik Way, I'm sure.

Like you said, leave the belt a little loose and all should be good.

I used this thing all day with only one repair to the wobble pedal linkage.
I still need to fix the charging, but right now it's down the list.

Wanted to use the Ss12 today, but ran out of daylight hours.

I managed to get some GT time last evening.

Went down and got a scoop of dirt.

Came back, put the forks on and moved the pallet rack I am working on for work.

Then we rearranged the lower garage enough to get some things out for the show.P6110863 (Large).JPG P6110864 (Large).JPG P6110856 (Large).JPG P6110861 (Large).JPG

I used it heavily during the summer show.
Brought it home and started taking out the rock garden in front of the house.

I'll add pics later, my phone had an aneurysm

And now the bad news...
I broke a belt. Main drive on the Roper. Was old, lots of torque and strain lately.
So here it sits, very sad.image.jpg

Finally, some pics where you don't have a load six feet in the air.

 

Maybe put some duals on that bad boy? With about 30" spacers?

What's wrong with being proud of how tall my load can be lifted?
That sounds wrong... Oh, you know what I mean.

I know the slogan... Low and slow. But that don't make for good pics :D
