Went to the Thresher/Tractor show in Janesville Wi and saw some neat smaller tractors called "Quality Tractors" They were painted with AC orange had Wisconsin engines and no attachmeants. Any ideas? Thanks Den

About what year was it? In the 50s and 60s there were a number of small manufacturers out of garages that turned out small numbers of oddball tractors. Then there were the smaller companies in the 70s and 80s that had larger outfits like MTD and Murray manufacure them for them then they were painted and badged with the company that bought them.

I was there also, (the kettle corn was wonderful). they looked like the Economy Garden Tractors from the 1950's. Dont know a lot about either of them, good show, not many Simplicity or Allis, But was a fun day..

They were from 1950's with a small tractor frame about cub cadet size but with smaller wheels that were all the same size. The frame is shaped like an I. It has about a four foot wheel base, maybe three feet wide. Possibly an aircraft type tractor? Kettle corn was good, neat to see the old thresher's running around. Den

      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
