I picked up one earlier this year from a guy who advertised a mower deck for sale. When I got there I noticed he had a bunch of mower/tractor parts all over and one particular part caught my eye. It was one of the donut weights. he was using it as an anvil. It took some convincing but I talked him into selling me the whole thing for $10.

Those are actually pretty common - most people just don't what they are for. However, they make a huge difference in how well the tractor can push stuff with a front blade on. Well worth picking up if you spot them. They actually came in 3 colors - I have orange, black, and Homelite blue. Tim

      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
