Vintage family simplicity photos

Recommended Posts


My younger sister digitized all of the family photos for us as a Christmas gift. Their are a few pics of some of the tractors my dad had. the first pic is my great grandfather pulling us in a cart. The other tractor replaced that one in the late eighties, it was probably brand new in the pics. Not sure what models they are though, if you can tell please let me know. I still have the parker lawn sweeper and the cart.

Guessing the first tractor is an early '70's 3300 or 3400 series.  You can only see the nub of the hydro lever in the pic; I'm guessing it's a Vickers.  I think the first of the 7000 series carried the "System" label with a lot more paint over the hood.

The second tractor is a 7116 with hydrolift - can't miss the Brigg's chrome air cleaner.  Although I can't see the hydro lever, it must be there since it has a hydrolift.

      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
