got some of my tractors out for a saturday wood cutting. called in my drivers and we got alot of wood cut and split. had a pot of chile with franks and brats cooked over the open fire for lunch. hopefully going to have another work play day with more people. i had 3 more tractors ready and no more drivers. there is one thing i regret doing. that is hooking up a trailer to the landlord. there was a few slippery hilly spots that we really had to work to get in to. i think my old simplicity with the duals would have had no promblem. i left it in the yard with the disc on because i plan on discing more leaves in the garden later that day.

I would have loved to have been there! I love cutting wood, been working for a few years on clearing the hillside behind the house. BTW In the saw lineup what number is the Stihl? Looks like the MS290 I had.

Love the pics of the tractors in the woods! Brought back memories from way back when. My best friend lived a 1/2 mile down the road and had a wheel horse, I had a 725 and we both had trailers that we would load up with our camping gear and set off through the woods for our camping adventures. We cleared trails very similar to yours that were just wide enough to get the tractors and trailer through. What adventures we had! Thanks for bringing back some fond memories! Couldn't find a picture of both of our tractors, will have to check at the homestead on thanksgiving, but the picture in my signature line is of his Wheel Horse with him and myself on the trailer, and another friend on the tractor. That would be me in the middle. :D

I traded the 290 off on an Echo CS440. One more hp and I believe 4lbs less, if I remember right. Good saw, but.... then last week at the same sale I bought the model V walker at I bought a Stihl 028 wood boss for $60. Now THAT is a saw!8D I had cut quite a bit with the 290 and it served me well.

      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
