BTW, thought I'd put this in perspective: Wally Koerbel just loaned me a 1959 Simplicity catalog (yes, I'll be adding it soon) where someone had written in the following prices: Model 700 -- $550 Model 700 w/electric start -- $625 42" Rotary Mower Deck -- $125 32" Rotary Mower Deck -- $90 36" Rotary Snow Thrower -- $148 42" Snow Plow and Grader Blade -- $35 Not a bad return on investment -- spend about $850, then use it for 40 years, then get about 3 times ($2200) what you paid for it. Hmmm.....

At this rate I stand to make money. I have a Simplicity 700 with dozer blade, 42 mower, and sickle bar mower that have been given to me. All I have to do is pick it up. That, combined with my A-C B-1 will put me in the chips (cow chips most likely). ;o) Roy

That's nice to know,,,Our 700 is worth $2500 then because we have that hard to find 'rear hoist':) for it as well as the mower and tractor!Better investment than buying 200 shrs. of AG [AGCO] which BTW is going to go up soon! dlc

Sounds like rlpope has the 'winning hand' so far!If we put all these fine mowchines on ebay,we might get maybe 10 Grand for all of them,then we could buy a new Sov.from JN?? [of course!]and rotate posession of it every few wks.!Sounds like a plan to me!...NAH! dlc

If he paid shop labor rates for a professional restoration, he is probably not making much on the deal. He could have sold it as-is for a few hundred, and been further ahead.

      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
