My new addiction

Recommended Posts

Bluestreak
Hello, my name is Chad, I'm a Gemini, I like long walks in.... Wait... wrong forum... What I ment to say was, I'm ADDICTED! I picked up my first tractor about a month ago. A little fine tuning and she's all ready to go. I don't know what year the tractor it is yet, but I'm hoping a little more research can point that out for me. This is my BIG TEN. I got her with a plow, blower and mower deck. My brother-in-law has a B-12 that came from my wife's grandfather and I stole the moldboard plow and spring harrow from him since I have a garden to tinker in. Since I have a zero turn mower to trim my 3 acres of grass, I'm not using the big ten to mow. But I've played with just about every other attachment I have. The dealer I got her from put a carb kit on her, I still have issues but that's another post, and I ordered a set of AG tires. Other than that, I've done nothing to her yet. This site has greatly helped me already. I'm looking forward to more.

According to the following, the Big Ten was built in 1965: http://simpletractors.com/X-reference/ac_s_pg1.htm Welcome to the club, Chad. Glad to have you as a new member.

Welcome to the site Chad. This will be the best $10.00 you will ever spend on the Big Ten and any others that follow this is addicting. You should try the mower they work great. Good luck with the new born when he or she gets here.

Welcome congats on the new tractor and also the pending arrival of the new groundskeeper these guys have been great with helping me with problems most times without even knowing they did it by reading the other posts they teach alot about these tractors (as for the new groundskeeper I dont know how much help they may be) they may corrupt the little one then you will have to share your tractor. good luck

Now Kent, you shouldn't be telling people about this support group. Some nights there are so many people needing help that it is difficult to even say hello to everyone. All the "basket cases are there for sure" That is why you will always find me, and Roy, and Levi, Thom, and Marty, to mention a few, who are hanging around there every Sunday evening about 9:30 or after(eastern time).:p We fix more tractors in there than most small engine repair shops.:D Psychology costs extra! sm00

      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
