My fever is so high (Updated load #2)

Recommended Posts

SimpleTom
Went with my brother in law to pick up a few Deeres he bought last weekend at a Simplicity dealer that has a few used tractors. Here is the first load that we came home with.








The Simplicitys are mine. He picked up the Case. The second load next week includes a Homelite T-10, a Homelite CT-10, a Bolens, and two rear engine Deeres. I am getting the T-10. My five tractors cost me $200. Not a bad deal. I really should get some Ibuproferin to reduce my fever. LOL!! Tom

Tacey, that's what he bought the the 3410 for is the lights. I missed it when Tom and I were there four months ago. This sale has been a long time in happening, well four months. All kinds of stuff seems to happening around here lately. Between yours truly, Simpleton7016 and Simple Tom, this last year has been, find this, go here, buy that, too small, sell this. And these two guys are truly good friends.

Thanks guys! Josh, Yes I think that is a John Deere 70 in the truck. Tacey, Yes, one may get parted out but I am keeping those headlights as Bob (BLT) said. Bob, It seems like now is the time to get those tractors. However , if they are on consignment he is sticking to those prices. Perry, Yes the Deeres were just as cheap. He got the 70, 111, 112 and a 110 which we picked up last weekend, all for $200.

$200, Wow, thats a bargain from a dealer! And I too know about the JD lights, seen them bring hundreds on ebay, I've got one of those 110s, just sitting, even with a new shortblock, guess you can tell I'm less than enthusiastic about working on the green ones.

That will certainly work!lol I went directly from parents, to married. The war department doesn't like my "stuff" so much. But, she understands! Tom, I have rarely seen a dealer let loose of anything that cheap! Especially that green stuff. What are they a dealer for? I find that dealers like to be rid of stuff that is the wrong color. Nice haul!!8D:D

Hi I agree, that is a nice load of tractors! Excellent deal for buying 5 tractors for $200.00! Wish I could find a deal like that. I would not mind have a couple more Sunstars in my fleet. Take Care Jason B

Well, today was the trip for load number two. Here are the pics. My brother in law picked up two Simplictys for himself. A 728 with headlights and a 717 with high/low. $50 each.








Nice seat on the CT-10


Close up of my T-10.

Nice haul! I don't know who's trailer that is but I like where the hitch is installed for the winch. On my old trailer I had mine on that front rail, but haven't decided how to mount it on the new trailer.

Well, I'm the brother in law in question. With this last load, I'm at 19 tractors right now...plus one full size farm tractor! Some for fun, some for parts, some for...well maybe other projects! ;) As for the trailer, I just cut the center out of the front bar, then welded a plate with two supports to the front of the trailer. Works out pretty good.

      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
