Simplicity snob

Recommended Posts


My wife noticed this old toy at an antique store.  I said, "Too bad it is a John Deere."  She said I was becoming a Simplicity snob.  I bought it any way.  Goes well with my other bookshelf treasures.  The last two are of one my son made for me one Father's Day.

My Dad has a 1951 John Deere MT and I've been darn glad to be able to use it several times. Yes, even the time the solenoid quit up in the woods and I had to walk 3 miles home to get the hand crank.

the ones your son made

Yeah, he is pretty clever.  The rear wheels are actually circular saw blades.  I covered them with wire sheathing so they wouldn't mar the table top.

      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
