On my way to Ryans plowday site Saturday I saw this tractor at a garage sale and had to stop.I had a good chat with the owner and told him about the plans for the plowday this coming Saturday.He may even show up and do some disking.:D I've not been a big fan of Deere's but this is an impressive outfit!Too bad he wouldn't sell the Carry-all separately.

Those 140's sure had a nice system of hydraulics. I used to drag one of those brinly 3 point disks behind my AC Homesteader8. Not sure I like those wire wheels so much.

I've got one of those disc that I used with my 64 Economy tractor before I got my 620. They do a good job for no more than they are. As for the gang arangement, I think he must have put the rear on backwards after giveing it that funny coloured paint job.lol Would be a little tough to get it to cut like that wouldn't it.

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
