FDT Big Ten

Recommended Posts


Well the story goes about 7 years ago, my local mechanic had a Big Ten from the farm, as as I looked at it he noted he was going to restore it.  After doing a Deere Model G, very nice, and others, the Big Ten was still on the to do list.  He decided to restore his 70's Dodge, and someone offered him $200 for the Ten, the deck and a MacKissig Might Mac.  His son noted to him, that I was interested from long ago, so picked up my first foot dragging today.  A bit "barn" dirt, but starts and looks to run well.  Drove around the yard some, all gears work, and steers nice.  Have much to learn, clean, and install, but looking forward the to winter project.   Will power wash and then begin the review.  Will have many questions as my fleet has always been 5200, 6200 and 6500 tractors.  Total expense was under $200.  Hope to make it the back up mower, and fill time chipper.

Nice find. Original light bar and lights, Nelson muffler, seat cushions all present.Hub caps may even clean up with an SOS pad and some warm water. Have fun with it.

      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
