IDENTIFYING SIMPLICITY EQUIPMENT

Question

MARK (LI)

Hey   my name is Mark   I live on Long Island   just joined this group today   I have had a few small John Deere lawn tractors and have enjoyed using them and working on them. My most recent JD ... a STX38 is on its last legs so I started looking around at JDs and Cubs...then I discovered these Simplicity tractors and I cannot believe the difference in the quality of the Simplicities....So I am looking for one and was wondering if there is any reference material in which I would be able to check compatibility of attachments...I am going out to look at a few tractors this weekend...I need a bagger system and none of the equipment I have scheduled to check out comes with a bagger system...also going to be looking for a snow blower for it....but I want to know that what I pick up will fit on and be compatible with whatever I do ultimately buy....tractordata has a good amount of information, but I am seeing a lot of stuff for sale that tractordata does not cover...would appreciate any help...thank you   Mark

Welcome to the club. As a suggestion, you'll probably get far response by going to "Talking tractors", If by chance you post something, a moderator will move to  w hat he thinks is an appropriate forum. Any if you go to the "Downloads" forum under "manuals, other", you'll find a "What Fits" downloadable files. That should get you a taste. Most options are downloadable from the Simplicity MFG site.

Mark, Welcome to the club,  this is a great group of folks with a wealth of knowledge.  I apologize that I cannot help you too much at the moment as I am still getting to grips with the new website structure.  FYI There's a bunch of us who meet up each year in the early spring in northwest Ohio,  welcome  again , and I am confident that your journey with simplicity tractors will be fun and very rewarding.  But be careful it is easy to be a  tractorholic :-) Best Regards, Colin

      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
