Out for trash pick-up

Recommended Posts

Tjlep
Hello all, Labor day morning I was headed for the drug store When I spotted this 7012 Landlord on the side of the road. I slowed down and looked and decided to go on and stop on my way back. Once I stopped and looked at it for awhile I decided to go up to the house and ask them how much they were asking for it. A lady answered the and explained to me that The tractor had not run in years and that it was out on the street for trash pick-up. I asked If she minded that I take it and she told me to go ahead. To make this short by the evening it was running and moving arond. Also came with a 42" mower deck. [img]/club2//attach/Tjlep/7012.jpg[/img]

Great Find! I'd like to run on to a couple like that. Had to buy all of mine, either with money or a lot of labor. Did find a Sears Suburban at the local dump. Brought it home, got it running and mowed my lawn with it for 5 or 6 years, till the ignition on the Tecumseh engine died. I have had very good luck with give away items, yard sales, and at the local dump. Congratulations on that great find!

I'm glad everyone likes it. I wasn't really in the market for another tractor, earlier this year I purchased a 65 9 Hp. Landlord with a snowblower, plow, grader blade and mower deck. I was planning on restoring the 9Hp. and using it but now I'm wondering if my attachments will fit this one, It does seem like a real workhorse. Anyone have an opinion on which tractor would be a better work tractor, I may have to sell one due to space.

I don't what to ruin your day but I have a friend that picks up this discarded junk. He is contracted with these people and he depends on some of the things he picks up to resell! In our community if you but something out on the curb for pick-up, like aluminum cans, it is against the law for anyone to take these except the junk dealer. So think about this next time. You could always call the junk dealer and make a deal. Which I have done, they deal real good! Thanks, I'm new here and enjoy all the imput and hope to make alot of friends!

I know some people do pick up scrap for income, this was put out for Municipal pick up. Around where I live the local townships will pick up large items like refrigerators and washer dryers and they wind up in a landfill. I would never cheat anyone out of their living.

      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 
      Paul
