Large pic of Jim McDonald's 725 from GOTO

Recommended Posts

Hey is that a speck of dirt I see on that front tire? :o) I agree about the pictures not doing this machine justice. I saw it up in Orange and was very impressed. I'm also interested to hear that Jim just purchased a new fdt at the GOTO. We'll just have to wait to see how excited he really is about his new aquisition. Could the 725 end up with a shiney twin?

John, That is actually a shaft cover. It is similar to a bicycle handgrip, or the grip on the lift lever. You should have gone with us. We had a great time. The tractor I built with the parts you gave me is sitting just to the right of Jim's tractor. The one on the far side. You can see the large rear tires in the first picture.

John A., The light on Jim's tractor appeared to be a modified automobile spotlight. It was mounted on top of the hood, and he had filled in the original hole on the front.

Thanks for all the great comments on my 725. It was a lot of work but this is what makes it all worth it. PS the covering on the front shaft is the rubber ends that go on a cane. 2 of them. .79 each at sears hardware.

      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
