Trip to Sandy Lake

Recommended Posts

Had the opportunity to visit at Sandy Lake recently. Finally got to meet with Brenda, Bill and the staff. They allowed me to tour their inventory of used parts and tractors. I was like a kid in a candy store. They are every bit as friendly and helpfull in person as they are on the phone. It's great to do business with people like that. It's what makes this club what it is. Jack

There only an 8 hour trip one way trip for me. I have thought about trying to go out that way and stopping by. I met them three years ago at the GOTO in NY. They were very friendly.

OK Jack, not everybody takes their camera with them when they look at parts and tractors. Maybe Sandy Lake can use this as a prompt to post a few pics, or we could look for sites where there are some, such as on the Simpletractors links to advertisers. Advertisers note we like pictures of the people we deal with, your facilities and machines.

Thanks Jack - I think you're a lucky duck! I've dealt with both Brenda and Bill and found both to be very helpful. Thanks for posting that you made a visit and met them both. All I can say is I wish I was in your boots (Don't worry about the pictures)! John

Did I understand right you went to Sandy Lake on your honeymoon? and I thought *I* have an exceptionally understanding wife! 5 yrs this August 10th. How is that for cooincidence! Maybe for 5 yr anniversary I should take her to Sandy Lake? She says "you are getting so many tractors you need a bigger shop than we planned. Put off the kitchen remodel and get the shop done" -Don

      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
