New tractor. Well.........it is simple!

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I made a long journey of a mile or so into town for an auction. My parents were already there, seems bad they live on the other side of the river and they beat me there! Anyway I get there and Dad tells me there is a garden tractor in the back yard for me , of course I went straight to the back yard! There I found this.

It is a Lodge and Shipley Choremaster, I had two of these some years ago that I sold at a swap meet. They did not have engines, but did come with one implement which at the time I could not find. A couple years ago I found it back, [it is the furrower laying beside it in the picture,]so I just had to buy this one!;) It took some intense bidding,&:) I got it for $13! Took it home, put fresh gas in, pulled it 7 or 8 times and it purred like a kitten! Gotta love those old Briggs!

My dad has one of those that was used to cultivate our garden. The only difference is that ours has a round gas tank mounted seperate from the motor, I believe the motor is one of the old 1 1/4 briggs. It has not been started in years but I would bet that fresh gas and a little cleaning and it would fire right up.

      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
