Homelite, Massey-Ferguson, and Montgomery-Wards???

Recommended Posts

We're starting to get traffic and members who own these "orphaned" garden tractors, some of which were also manufactured by Simplicity. Glutton for punishment that I am, I'd like to add cross-reference info on them also, so that these owners can also use other avenues to obtain information, parts, etc.

I have some late model X-ref info from Simplicity (for example, Simplicity-manufactured MF's are included in the current X-ref table, but I have nothing on the earlier Homelites and Montgomery-Wards. I'll ask Simplicity to see what they'll provide also.... Ironically, I understand it was a contract with Montgomery-Wards that started Simplicity in the garden tractor business....

Can anyone else help me gather this additional X-reference info? Thanks!!!!

I believe the Wards Squire 7 was the same as the 725 except for paint. The Squire 9 was the 9 hp version of the Landlord, and the Squire 10 was the same as the 10 hp Landlord. This was the last and the next year Gilson built their tractors. I have some cross refference sheets I got from the factory on Homelite about ten years ago. I'll see what I can come up with soon. They were just typewritten from Simplicity Service, I don't believe they were copyrighted, I'll check.

      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
