Freeland Antique Power Show in Ohio

Recommended Posts

This guy from Colorado was visiting inlaws in Ohio over the weekend and realized I was close to Freeland. There wasn't a lot there in garden tractors, and no Simplicty or Allis stuff. One thing that caught my eye was a Gibson tractor, which I had never heard of, and the place of manufacture was casted in big letters in the tranmission housing, "Longmont, Colorado". I didn't know any tractors were ever made in the Centennial State. Now I see J. L. Lasater shows a picture of another Gibson tractor, turbine powered no less, on his posting # 4593. I took a few pictures on film, not digital, so I'll try to send them when they get developed. P.S. There were a couple of steam tractors at the show . . . the same weekend as the tragedy at the county fair in Northern Ohio. It makes one think.

      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
