725 Put to the Test Again

Recommended Posts

Here some pics of my 725 plowing down my 2nd green manure barley crop the first weekend of Aug. My son was up for a 'short' visit so He took some inaction shots. Most of it was about 42 inches tall.

As you can see, the barley is just a bit taller then the 725

Claiming Victory

reseeded, which is now about 6 inches tall, and about all I'll get for A 3rd crop as it was 28 degrees this morning.

I'm a firm believer, 'There's no such thing as too much fun'. Only reason I can come up with for the better roll over after the first few passes is once I got on full length run I went from 1st to 2nd gear running about 3/4 open, then it burried real nice. Wide open in second seemed to fast for proper roll over. Does that make sence to any of you farmers?

Great job Marty! And yes, you can get too much ground speed when plowing and the cut will fall back instead of rolling over but I can't explain why. Man that sure looks like fun. I'm waiting to turn the sorghum till after it drys and the birds have eaten the seeds. Thats in the garden,but the plots over the hill I'm going to leave till spring for cover for thr birds.

      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
