Simplicity and the Promised Land

Recommended Posts

Having just come home from Sunday school, I realized that the history of the Simplicity brand is not much unlike that of the tribes of Israel.   

Jacob lived in the land of Canaan where the family had thrived for generations.  His favorite son, Joseph, was sold to Egyptian traders.  Joseph later brought the family into Egypt to avoid widespread famine.  The family grew and became strong in Egypt but they wanted to go back to Canaan and be on their own.  They were successful for a number of years but eventually conquered by Nebuchadnezzar.

Simplicity thrived on its own for many years but was eventually sold into Allis Chalmers.  The brand grew and became stronger but eventually left the land of Allis Chalmers to be on its own.  It was successful for a few more years but was eventually conquered by the mighty Briggs & Stratton.

I’m just sayin’ . . .

Yeah, so if the Israelites were "the Lord's chosen people, then Simplicity must be the Lord's chosen tractor.  Right?

If that's so, how long until they are restored to their former greatness?

      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
