Gotta love Simplicity!

I am new to the club. I am 17 years old, and have experienced the quality Simplicity maintains since I was 12. My father used to work at a Simplicity dealership as a salesman. When I was 12, I decided I wanted to mow lawns for some extra money. I soon recieved so many jobs that I needed a tractor. My dad brought home a 1972 728 Broodmoor, and I laughed at it. I decided to give it a try, and was so impressed that I bought it for $420. (yes with my own money) I used that mower all summer without a problem, then prepped it for winter and used it
to snowblow out driveways. I used the mower for two years, and had a chance to buy a new 12.5 broodmoor, I jumped at the chance and paid cash. I sold my old mower to the city and they use it to pull a trailer around mainstreet to water flowers. Anyway, I have gained an excellent reputation for my lawnmowing services, and have to turn jobs down even. I have gotten into numerous arguments with people about why Simplicity is best. (I refer to John Deere as "Junk Deere"). Now this summer, I got a
different job, and I'm selling my new mower to pay for a truck. I recently aquired another old Broodmoor (717), and am sold on Simplicity forever. I have talked my neighbor and a teacher of mine into buying a new Broodmoor like mine, I should've sold them mine. It is nice to belong to a club that has so many people that agree with you on the same topics that I argue about with other people. I have had many people offer me $500 for my new Broodmoor, it is very frustrating to explain to a bunch of
ignoramaces why it is worth more than their worthless Murray's. Anyway, I just had to get that off of my chest, sorry for the long windedness.

Hi Marc, it was a pleasure to read your message for sure. If you don't sound like my own son I don't know who does. Yes I agree 110% plus with everything you said about the Simplictiy tractors and lets not forget the good ole AC's either. Sounds to me as though you knew from the get go what exactly you wanted and just went out and did it. Congrats on all of your success and its a pleasure haveing you aboard. We all here know about those green things that some people ride around with their noses up in the air on. And the save goes for the Murry's but some people just can't see daylight. Thanks for your Message and I know we all will look forward to your participation. Thanks jackl

I have to say that I agree with you because I have a serf 525 wich is the smallest garden tractor made but it packs alot of punch . Its only 5 hp but it has no truble going up steep inclines without slipping. It also has a blower attachment that works like a charm. Doug

      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
