I put my Johnny Bucket to the test

Recommended Posts

Picked up my Johnny Bucket Jr. from John last weekend. I drove the 7016 off my truck and into a pile of 2" wash stones. I had to use both hands to lift the bucket. I drove into the shed and dumped it. It was so much fun that I used it to move about 20 bucket loads. By then it was dry enough to mow the yard so within 10 minutes I had the bucket off and put away and the mower deck on and was mowing the yard. Boy that Hydro and a 48" deck sure beats my Homesteader with the 36" deck!

Rick, How much weight would you think you were hauling in your bucket that it took two hand to lift it? During testing your bucket, I was able to lift a 220lbs man with one arm but it was a struggle. John Scheele

      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
