Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Republic, MO Steam-O-Rama 2018

Recommended Posts


On Friday I was in Southwest Missouri and made a stop by the Steam-O-Rama show. It was an AC feature this year but I only counted seven AC lawn/garden tractors on the grounds.


AC- Mini-Bike.


Flea Market







Mostly home-built Forklift. Saw this one at the GOTO at Lathrop MO in 2014 also. 





The '67 F-350 might have been my favorite of the day. 






I was in a hurry, buzzed through in about 3 hours so I probably missed something but those are some of the highlights.

Very nice!  A couple interesting L&G machines there. 

I love that Diamond T!   ...a local car and vintage camper/boat restorer here locally has one as his tow rig.  We see him all over, regardless of where we go, and especially when camping.  He's a real neat guy.  This is his '48 D/T 201 and one of his past camper projects.  I think this one has an LS1 inside...he even drives it in winter!

I usually try to make this show but work got in the way this year. The customized Oliver motorized manure spreader is interesting!  Looks like the garden tractor show still hasn't taken off but the farm tractor part is growing and the old cars/trucks is (as Chris shows) probably the most intriguing. Thanks Chris.

Some great shots...I like the early '50s road tractors with the snub noses...I did at one time drive a '54 Mack of similar design....that thing was a spine snapper...had an air powered starter...if you lost air or if it was really cold out, you would always need a compressor to supplement the air supply...that Diamond T is a great looking truck...I like the other DT also pulling that camper..there I go again...living in the past

Does anyone know anything about that BURNS in the 4th picture?...it reminds me of a BOLENS from that time period

I believe at the time the Burns was related to Springfield or Gilson.

      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
