Not OEM batteries

Right you are, Tim. I don't know what the 'oldies' take, but my neighbor's Baron and my SunSpot use a BCI group 22NF. It's pretty obvious that they don't take a U1 since they have automotive style cable clamps, no matter what a salesman might tell you. Of course no Simplicity dealer would make a mistake like that!

Fred, Back in the 70s I also bought 22NF but can't find them now. Had a hard time finding the right case size and found that the 51 series has the same size case. Thought it was a replacement for the 22. Shows how little I know. Tim

My Simplicity dealer only sells the small tractor batteries. The old Simplicities and ACs all came with auto batteries and that's what the charging system was designed for. I buy the 51 series auto batteries for $54 bucks at Wall-Mart. I do not use those litte garden tractor batteries. If you do use the small ones they run $19.95 and 29.95 at Wall-Mart depending on the Amps. The Simplicity dealer sells them for $40.00. The dealers will probably dispute what I've said but it's my opinion and I'll stick to it. Tim

      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
