OK this is orange and black with silver rims. Kent and I saw similar equipment at the home office a month ago.

Its more like one of these.... [img]http://www.masseylawn.com/2700_1.jpg[/img] and one of these...... [img]http://www.simplicitymfg.com/images/s_conquest.jpg[/img] Both with 50" decks. I also bought the two adaptor kits required to mount a Soveriegn tiller on one of them and also the two adaptor kits to mount a Soveriegn Snowblower on one of them. The kits cost (cough cough) over $900.00. But thats a whole lot cheaper than buying one complete snowblower and one complete tiller package. The dealer I got the ConQuest from( Another top nothch individual that I met a few years ago and have done some trading of used stuff with) had the kits and has sold them before. I called him to initially ask about what was needed to attach the tiller and blower , then ended up getting a price quoted to me on the tractor( sitting on his showroom floor) low enough that feel I owe him a favor....or two. Called my Massey dealer back about some other questions and he offered to sell me a 2720 on his floor for the same price. I think my dad having just bought a new farm farm tractor from him may have influenced that offer. After looking at the 1.9% low interest program, I think its a win win situation. Allows me to use my money to make more money while the finance company only makes a relatively small amount till I pay them off. Also lets me sell off ALL the Wheel Horse stuff and older Simplicity stuff, save for the tiller and blower. The only thing I'm out at the moment is a cab for the ConQuest, though I may buy a older used one from the Simplicity dealer to modify to put on the ConQuest. We were thinking about a Legacy with a 48" deck Al Eden has, but we decided that it was too big a tractor frame and we would end up having to buy all completely new attachments for it rather than incorporate what we already have. Should be taking delivery of both of them next week. Already have a set of nice Good Year Ag tires waiting for mine.|)

Can't believe after all this you finally came to your senses. I was about to pack my bags and NEVER come back if you (Presidental material) didn't wind up with something more in line with the club. Good for you!! Upgrades all around...

Do you think by chance that this was one on of those setups that the consumer new all along was the purchase was going to be, but he kept us on edge??:D:D:D:D Whatever the case, good choice times two.

Sam, Congrats on the new tractors!! I don't think you'll be disappointed. Let us know how you like them. I have been looking at the Prestige/Conquest and 2700/2800 Series myself. Might buy one next year... maybe if the price is right.:)

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
