Weekend Hauls - very dissapointed

Recommended Posts

I always look forward to Monday and Tuesday to see what y'all were able to grab over the weekend. I think this is the first weekend I can remember where y'all got skunked! Me thinks it is time to regroup and re-double your efforts. I am sure I am not the only member who lives vicariously through the rest of you! C'mon guys, let's focus a little more on yard shopping and a little less on your honeydo task list! Crickets....all I hear is crickets. I am so disappointed!

My nephew kept me busy on Saturday. Working a MF1450 & taking apart a Tecumseh 13hp engine. I did go to a Simplicity dealer to look at a few tractors but they were closed. And picking up leaves & a few other things.On Sunday it rained all day up here. Karl

Thank you, It is nice to be able to find things again. Now if I can get my two kids to put their toys and bicycles back where they got them from. It's not fair that I have to share my garage with my kids.

Well...My weekend included helping a buddy out. A three month old "side of the road" find by me which yielded my buddy a very nice addition to his GT14 Wheel Horse which I also located for him and even provided him a TRADE tractor so that he got the GT14 free of charge.(Don't wory..the trade tractor was free to me also...A story for another time) . A free to me, then free to him, leaf vac head unit complete with a poorly running, yet repairable, gold series 5hp briggs (rings), ample tubing and even the rear Tach a Matic hitch and the discharge pick up chute. Well....what's he missing?...... The collection trailer materials. An old sulkey, angle iron from a 300 gallon gravity fed oil drum frame that was on my property when I originally purchased it 7 years ago (Which goes to show you....Never throw anything away...lol), left over 24 inch wide flashing material that the company I hired to do my roof left behind, galvenized green house 5/8ths window actuator bar aka galvenized water line with out the NPT threads that was a deomlition find, a 13/16ths tongue and groove sheet of sub flooring left over from my loft project 5 years ago in which it was first used as a portable motorcycle platform, along with donated iron from the afore mentioned oil tank iron that was put in a horse trailer to get his and my bikes to Florida for the 03 Bike Week in Daytona, and a good deal of imagination and ingenuity on our part to put all this stuff together to make a rolling rigid platform and back board for the soon to be completed collection trailer. Moral of the story.....Albeit.....NOT a weekend of immediate aquisitions, immediate road side salvations or immediate great hauls that were a result of THIS weekends posts....It was a devoted weekend for our passion. And it included a vast variety of various aquisitions that, ironically, bore no out of pocket expense. I call that an interesting tractor related weekend. Oh......it did put the brakes on getting much done with the Sovereign. But....if we all had a time line that we refused to wane from then, IMHO, nothing would get done on time. :p Sean aka ZippoVarga

Oh man. At the risk of starting a dispute that belongs in the BRL, I don't think a woman would be a satisfactory substitute for a few good tractors. Nor vice versa. -DM

      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
