roadside find

Recommended Posts

I took a ride today with the kids to look for the Allis I was told about. I found it and it turned out to be a B207. I asked the poeple that have it what their intentions with it were. It seems to be complete. The grill was off it but in the shed. They were mowing with it and the deck belt gave out so he parked it, took the deck off and there it sits. I told them if they wanted to sell it to call me and the guy asked "what's it worth"? So I'm asking for some feedback. The seat is rotten and it has the typical rust from sitting outside. Would I be insulting to offer $50 to $75 for something that's just sitting around collecting dust that may not get used again? They told me they never thought about selling, didn't think anyone would want it.

Not too late for less offer. We haven't discussed a dollar amount yet. I was told it ran good but didn't try starting it. I have a feeling I caught them a little off guard. I told them I would give them a week to talk it over and decide if they wanted to part with it. I think they will let it go cheap just to get rid of it. The guy knows very little about it. One of their tennants left it behind.

      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
