Boasting My '738 Broadmoor

Recommended Posts

Ripped through today's snowfall here in Soutrhern Connecticut (we got about a foot of powder). Worked real well. The few issues I had are: frozen throttle cable (temporarily substituted one from my other tractor), occassional carburetor flooding (not sure what's happening here, perhaps the needle valve is getting stuck), and weak battery. All in all I got some good work out of it today. Even got a little carried away and took care of my neighbors. Could probably benefit from the weight accessory package (wheel weights, etc ...) - I'll keep my eyes open for that. The chains helped alot. http://pages.cthome.net/atkelly/images/broadmoor.jpg

For an inexpensive solution to rear weights, you may want to add windshield washer fluid (make sure it's winter formulas with antifreeze) to your tires. You could probably add about 35 pounds or so to each rear tire for less than $10 ... it's about 8 lbs per gallon, and on sale it's about a buck a gallon.

      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
