Very nice!  I think you will find that to be a very capable machine.  foot hydro, power steering and differential lock on the fly spoiled me for any loader work. dOd

Front drive shaft set up for a lovejoy coupler.

Downsizing?  What's that?

Believe I've conceded defeat.

I also thought of downsizing years ago. I've given up on it. I can't pick just one or two. Can't get rid of them all either. Just kind of stuck. I am getting tired of spending countless hours fixing the $150-$250 junkers that no one will buy as projects, but I can't bring myself to scrap.  Its nice that you got to meet Sam and Stephen. Always have a great time visiting with them at the ice cream social.

I've met so many wonderful people since becoming a member here that share the same love for these tractors as I do and hope to meet many more.

Chris I'm feeling the same on the little ones just so much invested and don't want to scrap either, I actually thought there was a better market for them or I wouldn't have messed with them.

What happened to the other goodies you were going to get on the way back?

The box of bolts and pins I forgot to give you are going out in the mail today. Should have them in 2 days.

I called the guy when I left Stephen and he wouldn't work with me on the Sunstar and being tired I said the heck with it and John I called and didn't answer so decided just to go home.

Called John yesterday about loader and set it up so Shaun could pick it up and He decided I could just pay him and he would go get the loader so, a road trip in order to Janesville Wi. first of Nov.

Made a little head way on loader, was considering waiting till I got one from Shaun but decided to mount this one.

Got mount for pump welded in, and have under carriage on with a few bolts need to finish tomorrow, there calling for rain so it'll be a good work day

Changed the front shaft so as to use the lovejoy coupler think I got it on a little angle but it'll work fine

Ok folks , just decided that I'm going to use the other loader I just bought and rework this one to fit my 720.

I tried last night to get under mount to bolt up and seem that frame is either bent or when they welded all the reinforcements on they pulled it anyway only got three bolts in .

It ain't no big deal as other loader is like near new condition, probably just cut mount out that I just welded in

It'll be around first on November before I get loader but then I'll post more pictures, sorry for the delay

Nice that you're making some progress. I haven't made much progress on my loader, and I've had everything I needed to complete it for several years. Just always busy with something else.

Ok got loader on tonight in rain storm  but the way it is setup I'll have to do some rerouting in pump hoses.

Shot of pump makes it look simple but really very little room to move in there, I have floor jack and stands under bucket to hold up till I get hoses connected

Real shame that people hack things up instead of just fixing right, I get a chance to look at Yukon's loader soon I'll rework this so it's easier to install.

looks good lloyd. it will be nice to run with the foot control trans so you can free up a hand to steer with unlike on the power max tractors

Yea it will but I just bought a Simplicity to get the Danco loader for my 620.

Origanaly I had planned to add foot control on the 620 too but to many projects.

      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
