Here are some photo's of some of the goings on at the Pepperell show. I missed the opportunity to get some members photos because the deals were flying, the bargaining was happening and I just plain forgot (not to mention that the Wood crew triple teamed me on bulk purchases:o)) [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711083406.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711083410.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711085952.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711083444.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711090032.JPG[/img] [img]/club2/attach/ericd/040711085938.JPG[/img] The youngster with the dually and his brother kept coming by the table wheelin and dealing more and more. By the end of the day when they came to haul away their purchased loot, I was piling some freebie things up on top of his little tractor just to lighten my load and give them more "cool things" to take home. I wish I had snapped a picture of the dually sporting a cultivator balanced on the plow, a rim on either foot rest held in by his legs, two more tires piled up on the hood, a gas tank and some other things balanced in some other spots...:D At one time the boy came over and offered me some $ for one item or another. I told him $10. He waves a five at me and says in this strange drawl he had: "you know you want it". It was hilarious and made for some good conversation during the day. As always it was great seeing members and setting up next to Al. The lucky loader mount bracket he traded to me in Orange worked again ;)

MDB, I don't think I'll make the Gathering as it's so far and I'm in charge of caretaking my daughter (6.5 months). I was reading through the Gathering thread and couldn't find a darn thing that would even come close to a usable excuse or way around being kept local in August. Who knows though, stranger things have happened...:) The other real barrier is my little brown box trailer being too small. I need to find a bigger and better trailer to safely transport my tractors over any real distance. If anyone has or knows of a dual axle trailer with up to a 7k carrying capacity for sale let me know. I'd especially be interested in one that has electric brakes and requires minimal repair. Thanks.

      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
