No snow yet:(

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone!


Haven't been on here much the last couple of months, been having a few health issues that are now under control.  Anyway, since moving to Iowa it seems all I can do is read about others playing in the snow for the most part.  This year so far is no different, still green grass in the back yard, but being an optimistic kind of guy, I am ready just in case.  Here are a few pics of the duo that will do the work this year:  my old reliable T816 and the "take it for free or I will throw it away" Agco Allis 918H.  Just got new chains for the Agco and got them on this morning, so everything is mounted, greased, and ready to go.  I welded 1/4 inch steel to the skids on both blowers also, and shot a new coat of paint in the throat and chute of each,  Looking forward to using that hydro for blowing, will be the first time for me.  The Agco is my first hydro and also my first Kohler.  Took some work, but it is ready to go.  COME ON SNOW!!!!!

Steve they look good , never hurts to be ready.

I had to break down today and get a set of chains for my Legacy, get the loader bucket full of wood and was having trouble moving, chains made big difference, little pricey at $103 and change 26-12-12

These 23X10.5-12 peerless chains were $53.75 and free shipping on Ebay, not a bad price.  I did notice that they seem a bit lighter than the older ones on the other tractor, which were also Peerless.  And yes, they make all the difference in the world.  On the T816 I have cast iron wheel weights also.  The Agco has no weights yet, but the tires are fluid filled and I am hoping this will be enough for the winter.

Here's what I got could have got them cheaper but there local.

At least there not yellow and green

I also looked at them on Ebay but was afraid they would end up sending me the wrong size, wouldn't be the first time.

Only thing bothers me is in lower right corner .

      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
