The loader only handled two of them.  On the big one I took a lesson from others and made a stone boat, dragged the stone up on the boat, then dragged the boat up on my trailer with a come a long.  Surprising how easy they pulled up the shallow slope to trailer.  Used a 2 ton come a long with a snatch block.   I read that granite weighs 150 pounds per cubic foot.  Estimate that big boy was about 1200 pounds.

One of them was what is called a Puddingstone, dragged to Michigan from Canada by glaciers and some say formed a billion years ago.........hmmmmmm.  Anyway they are different than the granite boulders we have so many of here in West Michigan.  Mine still covered in mud, this pic is an example about the same size as the one I hauled home.

      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
