A few pictures from Colchester show

Recommended Posts

Eli and I drove down to Colchester for the day yesterday, even though I had not had time to get a tractor ready to haul there. It was a gorgeous spring day in New England, though in the late afternoon it clouded up and the wind started blowing, so people began looking for sweatshirts and jackets. Here's a few pictures. Here's the club's lineup, with ReedS hardworking 314 Landlord in the foreground. Turnout for the show was quite good, though we didn't have quite as many tractors or club members there as for some of the fall shows. As you can see, we attracted attention.




The club's lineup viewed from the other end, with the exception of Maynard's HB-116 -- it was parked in front of his motorhome at the time. Maynard and Elon had staked out a pretty large area, with two canopies and club banners hanging from them, with space in between.


Once again, Jim's beautiful Model 700 and 2010 were the "queens of the show".






Maynard's camper, complete with club banner. In the foreground is Scott's (plastikomd) really slick hydraulic trailer with some of the parts available for sale. Scott's Rokon and Quadractor attracted a lot of attention -- in fact the Quadractor probably generated more attention than anything else we had on display.






There were quite a few Simplicity and Allis machines on display by non-club members scattered throughout the show -- including at least one that for sale.




All in all, a very nice day...

Once again, my camera never came out of the camper!:( It was a great show once again. A tad chilly Friday night, and Saturday morning, but it was a super day. Saturday night was a bit warmer, but the wind picked up and howled through the old camper. It was great to see every one again. We meet a lots of people who visited our little corner. It was nice to put a face to Ryno "Ryan" If i forgot to mention anyone, I apologize. We had a great time, even with Melanie getting stuck in the mud, twice!:O:D Thanks to all who came and joined the fun. Can't wait for Maine!

      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
