Went to a local tractor show, and was the only garden tractor there. To make it worse, thanks to wet grass, a weak brake, a narrow place to park, and the Landlords tendency to lift the front wheels, I ended up at the the bottom of a 15-20 foot incline with the Tractor on it's side on top of me. It was still running until I turned off the key! This of course was not the plan and while the tractor was uprighted, some damage was seen.

The spindle seesm to be bent down as the tire still runs true.

So much for a new aircleaner lid!

The damage could have been worse for sure, but still sad. Very nice tractor. My only hope is that you faired much better than the tractor! Accidents happen, but we always can learn from them. My guess is that some green tractor was in your way to park in a better place!:D

Randy, Hate to hear of your mishap- As far as the spindle...there is a guy in Calhoun that has nearly 30 of the FDT's but was not very eager to sell them individually :(! Brent

      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
