Jacobson trade

Recommended Posts

Not being able to get any info on the Jacobson I found, I'm leaving it on the trailer and taking it to Dyersville, Iowa this weekend. Maybe I can trade it for Allis/Simplicity

I have a "Chief" I found at a scrap metal yard. COst me 50 bucks without any tires and wheels. I got it home and put rubber under it and in about an hour it was running. The 12 hp Kohler runs great and it has a neat clutch set up like the old wheelhorse where a spring rod is used to load the clutch. THe Tranny on it I haven't messed with much up till now. It has a lock out on the shifter cutout that you can lift and place the transmission in what I would guess is an extra low gear. all told, its a neat little machine. BUt getting a deck for it would be a pain and if I ever did, routing belts would again be a pain. It has no front or rear lift, just a belly lift so really not much use to me unless I add one. I just hated to know the thing was going to be melted down. It was never on level with the Simple tractors but has merrits of its own. Guess I'll either make a rear lift for it or pull the engine and scrap 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
