That's awesome Ken. You're gonna love it!  More versatile and more comfortable to operate than the Bolens.  AGCO Massey dealer (Simplicity too) is nearby and I've watched these fly off the lot. If I only had more acreage...

Yes We have a dealer ( Farm Depot in  Ionia Michigan ) that had a killer deal .  I could have gone for the backhoe for about $3500 more , but That would be overkill for my propety.

Tractor with loader  Was $10,600 without mower deck

Thanks Ken in MI

Geez Ken!  She's a knockout!

I had an acquintaince contact me this spring asking about a loader machine that he could do some brush mowing and tillage work with, and after all my local research, that Massey was what I pointed him toward.  Some pretty competitive pricing out there.

Trying to convince my wife to let me buy one of these!  (Shhh....don't tell her I said that here).

Some times better to ask for forgiveness after the fact, than to ask permission

Actually, I did ask her for permission this weekend...turns out she's not against it.  Just have to save up for a little longer  - cash for us, no financing.

I took my wife with to the dealer, and she drove it and gave thumbs up!!!!

I think I'll do that very thing.  My wife is not hands-on when it comes to my tractor hobby, but I did get her to till the garden once and she seemed to enjoy it.  And she is the one to put the Orange Spectacular on our calendar every year, so she's definitely not against feeding my tractor addiction!

      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
