Hello, I have restored my 1980 7117 Sovereign a few years ago and would like to add a few attachments. Starting with incorporating a front rotating brush. I know older allis and simplicitys had them. But "I don't think" the Sovereign I have had that option. I can adapt one if it is a close match. I assume I can add a front engine pulley, or perhaps run a belt from the side PTO. A picture of the completed tractor is attached for reference. if anyone knows of how or where I could obtain one that would be great. Thanks!20130803_152431.jpg

:wave:  Welcome to the forum. I would think it would not be hard to put a brush on there. Finding one would be the hard part.

A front PTO was an option for that series. I have a 7112 That I have a snow thrower for. An original is manually operated or you might be able to use an electric clutch.

Thanks for the idea. If I find a sweeper, getting it attached to function and lift would be a small challenge. An electric clutch would be a great.
