Simplicity Broadmoor 738

Recommended Posts

Tim, thanks. I am currently going down the freight company route. What is really lacking in this is the approximate weight of the tractor. Any thoughts as to where this information can be had?

By far you seem to be the best source for information regarding Simplicity tractors. The question I have for is I am trying to gather information on a Simplicity Broadmoor Model 738. This has a 'vin' of; 898 8742 or 898 3742, the fourth digit is either a 8 or 3. It is somewhat worn but I believe it is an 8. Can anyone give me any specifics or any information about it.
This tractor is at my folks whom said that I could have it with the snowblower. The difficulty is distance, I live in Wyoming. How do you ship tractors? I want to ship this from Ohio to Wyoming. Do you utilize a freight company such as Yellow Trucking or Consolidate Freight? How do you go about shipping with a freight service? Your help in these questions are greatly appreciated.

Jon, You could ship with a freight company as you mentioned or with a moving company like Bekins or Mayflower. Check to see which has the best price. When you get the price make sure the tractor is worth the shipping charge. A freight company may require it be crated up. I also know that a moving company will want the gas and oil drained but may not require crating. 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
