    Simplicity Conquest 23 hp

    Default New member Simplicity / AC fan

    Hi Guys
    I am a kinda full time DIY woodworker,machinist ,welder type
    recently built my own FEL for my Simplicity Conquest 23 hp based off plans from PJ Eng.
    Its fully hydraulic 1 joystick 4 rams 4 foot bucket can easily hoist 500 lbs
    Had to modify Pauls plans quite a bit as his plans based on older large Cub Cadet
    My first experience with hydraulics (must say Paul was VERY HELPFULL as I had a bunch of
    questions but nearly everyone remarks "it looks factory" and that I musta bought it
    The Conquest is a 2008 model with PS nice tractor

    In "sick bay" a mid 90s Simplicity Broadmoor 15 hp hydro

    My latest a 1972 or 3 AC 616 of course these where built by Simplicity
    I have two 60" mower decks both need work tractor runs well
    has both front and rear PTO and 3 pt cat O hitch plans for AC are
    blasting "unboltables" and repainting them ( running boards, fenders, hood)
    trying very hard to avoid tearing all apart!
    But the big plans are to build my own mini backhoe using plans from PJ Eng.
    Going to try to get my daughter to post a few photos (thats lightyears past my ability)
    The AC has the 16 hp Onan engine starts/runs nicely

    Other interests 71 Olds 442..... gas/oil collector pumps cans signs.....woodworking jewelry boxes ect
    Looking forward hearing from others with similiar interests

    Gary, welcome to the community! Would love to see photos of the Olds and definitely some action shots of that BEAUTIFUL Front End Loader!! How Close is Queensbury to Lake George, NY? My wife and I are vacationing next week and would love to see that thing in action while she is shopping (LOL, women.) Potentially selling it I hope

    regards,
    Gerald Duckles

    Awesome, I would never think of doing that. Could you have mounted a Legesey FEL?
