Recommended Posts

i have a make offer chance for a old MTD garden tractor. the tractor been sitting outside for years. it has a twinn cyl hoizonal 16HP briggs & stratton. i never new mtd ran a sideshaft engine?. this is a good size tractor and the motor is cramped tight in there. what cought my eye is it has a nice 3PT hitch complete with chains and drawbar. any of you guys know if theese are worth a darn?. either for a fixer upper or a parts doner. wonder if i could fab that 3pt up on another tractor. as always i forgot my camera, but the link below looks real simuliar but with a smaller engine.

Looked at the link and could not see or read about the 3PT hitch. Looks like a single B&S engine to me. Did not see anything about chains either. Are you sure this is the right link?? Dan aka IronPony

I know of one near me that is like the one in the pic but has a 16 single Briggs in it (Not running). The guy wouldn't sell it and it just sits in the back of his property. I didn't look at it to much but it actually said MTD on it.

      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

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
