11.5 pounds of potatoes in a 7 pound sack

Recommended Posts


I had previously repowered this salvaged 707 with a used  8 hp Briggs but it crapped out.  I couldn't find a new 8 hp but I got a good deal on this 11.5 on ebay.  The bolt pattern was identical and the hood that came with it had already been hacked up so I cut it back to make it fit. 

I had the machine shop drill the drive pulley deeper so it would fit higher on the crank shaft for belt alignment.

Had the muffler man fabricate the exhaust but I added the VW chrome tips to quiet it down. 

The grandkids love it.

      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
