Picked this up at an estate sale.  Wasn't running.  SO after getting it home, cleaning it up, and hunting down the problems, it's up and running and actually in very good condition.  The PO had more than few things goofed up that I corrected.  Starting with a new bevel gear box to hydro drive belt that was a bit too long.  So, when the pedal was released the mechanism hit the fan shroud for the hydro.  So what do you do?  Well, you remove the fan shroud of course.  And of course the brake assembly needs to come off to do this, so that was missing too. I had all of these pats, got it all back together, and it's a great unit.  Didn't come with a deck or blower, shed stored and used just for tilling, or so I was told.

You can tell that's a nice one though even when it isn't wet! Nice save Brett.

Yes, thanks.  I usually look at the overall.  When the paint is in good shape and original, that says something.  Wheels not pitted and rusted, seat in good shape.  Hood not used for a workbench or all caved in in front. All of this kind of thing usually points to stored indoors and generally some care taken.  Then the mechanicals, tight steering? Solid and responsive hydro?  Tins and heat shields still in place? Tires match, hold air and not all weather checked?  The seat pan on this one is banged up a bit in the rear  (I have a great seat pan to replace it with, but no decals), but other than that it's a good solid unit. I always feel that is worth a lot.  Not even including all of the mechanical things these can need, it takes so much work and time to clean, straighten out or repair or replace things just to get them to an overall good clean condition that that is a value to me when I look at purchasing.  And all things being equal, if it's for me,  I am more than willing to pay a few hundred more for a clean tractor.  Heck, you can spend that on a seat and tires!  Not to mention the hours of work.

      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
