Spring cleanup means time to play!

Recommended Posts

We sold off some timber last fall and the timber buyer didn't do much to clean up all the tops and debris they had drug into our field, so my son brought over the CAT Dozer he uses at work. [IMG]http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h259/msiebern/down%20on%20the%20farm/kentbd1.jpg[/IMG] After watching him have all the fun, I decided that it just wasn't fair! There were plenty of smaller limbs and chunks of wood scattered around the field, and it would be a waste of time for him to go after all that "little stuff" with that big CAT, so I went to the house and retrieved my Allis Dozer. [IMG]http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h259/msiebern/down%20on%20the%20farm/b112.jpg[/IMG] I was surprised at how big of limbs I could push into the bigger piles for him with this little worker.

My oldest son came a little later in the day and took some videos of the work. When we viewed them later that day, he had taken some footage of me driving away on my "Allis Dozer", but he was standing close to my other son on the CAT. What he got was me driving away with the sound of the CAT diesel purring away and the tracks clanking as it worked away. Gave the impression those sounds were coming from my Allis!8D p.s. Yes, my son thought I was crazy, that is until he saw just how much work I could do with it.;)

Glad to see I'm not the only one with simple cures for spring fever. Size difference in the two is eye catching. Been grader blading the driveway every afternoon playing in souped up gravel, mud, and sand. About got it fit to spread the D-1 across.

      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
