Before And After

Recommended Posts

I did some cleaning up out back in the woods. This is what it was like when I started.

The is what it is like after I finished

The smaller trees left are of the size I was knocking over and shreading

These are the largest pieces left, I have not picked anything up or raked it

This is what I did it all with. My HB-212 with 48" deck with Gator blades. I pushed the brush and small trees over with the front of tractor. The ground is real soft and they went over easy. Then I went real slow over the trees shreading every thing up.

Yeah, that's about what it was like as Rob said. I just ran everything over and shreaded it with the Gators. I've also halved a few peach sized rocks(though not on purpose...) and not had them bend or break. They needed a good sharpening and balancing after the rocks, though.....

whats wrong with that deck, no stripes:) that came out nice. i was contemplating how to clear some of my lot too. that looks like the way to go. i guess i don't need that expensive brush cutter.

Yes I did. The main reason I did it was to get rid of 3 to 6" of leaves on the ground. The soil is real soft mostly mulch like from years of decaying leaves so the small trees pushed over easiely pulling them out by the roots. I realize that the equipment I used was not ment for this job but what is a bush hog other than an oversized mower deck. You just have to go slow. As the old saying goes. ("give a lazy man a job and he will find an easy way to do 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
