Dan we need workers as much or more than pageant queens!  =]  I know you have to have a few pictures of tractors and monumental snowbanks of that wonderful Lake Erie snow.

Josh,

I don't have any recent pics, but here are two from Oshkosh, Wisconsin with my 811GT Allis Chalmers and home made cab.  The first is from 2010, the second, night blowing pic is 2011.  36 inch blower.  Use whatever info you like.

Just one worker, my 6216.  A bit non stock, and does the neighborhood.

Shot of the front.

Back side, with added light, weight box that includes ground bars for wires, and charging.  Battery on these is under seat pan.

I just set this one up...it chews up snow and spits it out!

Broadmoor 14hv   2 cylinder B&S Vanguard...it is necessary to completely remove the blower and all its mounting hardware to use the mowing deck...so it is a bit of a pain to go back and forth, but it does a beautiful jonb on the lawn and a great job on deep snow   40 inches wide ...so it is worth it...I had just rebuilt the carb and put in new battery just before he cold weather

Josh, here are a few pictures taken today of my 1976 AC 710, just finished plowing the driveway.  This tractor is all original paint, and orginal 10hp Kohler,  and HD push blade.

Yea Bill we do get some deep stuff once in a while.  Those were from a couple of years ago.

 

Mike,

710 with hydro and hydro lift?  You do the conversion? 

I have a 716H I want to install hydrolift onto, already have the ported trans in it but have not done the pipes and valves yet.

Greg, Yes I converted it to a hydro and put in the hydraulic lift.  A tractor puller friend of mine bought the 710-6 with a broken rod engine for the 6-speed rear end to connect to a 912 for pulling.  I said I would by the left overs from him.  Which was the front of the 710 and rear end with hydraulic lift from the 912.  I just needed the bolt on bushing for the hydraulic lever (which is a simplicity part), because the 7xx series did not have the weld on for the lever.

BTW the only thing wrong with the "bad" engine is that it had  0 compression.  It was just overhauled with a new .010 over piston but with std. rings.  Put in .010 rings and it runs great, always starts, and uses no oil.

Boy, I can still remember when we had that kind of snow in the midwest.  Had a Bolens tractor and blower for many years, and had to have drift buster irons on each side of the blower 'cause the snow banks were so high.  That kind of snowfall or snow accumulation has not happened in many years.  We were snowmobilers then also, and most years we were riding before Christmas.

I remember riding over Thanksgiving break in about 1984 in Southern WI.  I also remember drooling over the 1985 Polaris Indy 600-SE!

Shaun:  The only new sleds we ever had were 1977 Yamahas.  Wife sold hers probably about 10 years ago.  My "new" sled is a 1990 Yamaha Phazer - haven't ridden that in probably 10 years or so!

I just moved from the 90's into the 00's about 5 years ago.  Still can't afford a new one!

      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
