J8C good for 2010?

Recommended Posts


LOL, good call Elon! In fact I am about to jump in the pickup and go git 'er. I've got the Marvel Mystery Oil, some Sea Foam and PB Power Blaster, a new spark plug, gas. Bet you a dollar I get down there and don't have something actually needed, like tie downs for the trailer, LOL!

Hi Gary, Can you put up some pictures of your 2012? Value depends on the cosmetic and mechanical condition of the tractor and the optional equipment it has. Hydraulic lift of implements adds greatly to value, especially if it is leak free with no corrosion and has fresh decals. If it's a 3 speed, a HiLo adds value. Mechanically, if the bevel gear box is tight and all the drive and idler pulleys on the various mule drives spin freely with no slop, that adds value. If the steering is tight, if you swing the wheel back and forth and there isn't 4-6" of free rotation before the steering engages again that adds value. If the deck and tiller are in mechanically and cosmetically good condition that adds value. If the starter/generator and regulator test out good that adds value. If you can post some pictures and tell all I can definitely tell you whether this tractor is the first thing you should save if there is a flood, LOL!

Gary, You didn't, by chance, buy that 2012 from a guy over in Sperryville, did you? I looked at one over there a few weeks ago. He was asking more than I was willing to pay, since I already have a few tractors.

No the man that had it was near me at Ruckersville.I gave him $260 for all of it.The tractor runs good needs tires and looks pretty good needs a seat.The blade has extensions welded onto each end but the tiller looks OK.He also gave me 2 chainsaws that run just to get them out of his way.How much was the one at Sperryville?

      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
