Last winter I came across a deal on a 7112s and I figured since it was the similar tractor as my Dad's 75th I went ahead and bought it.For years I used a 738 which was a nice heavy little tractor with a snow blade . To make a long story short I replaced the 738  with a 4212 which wasn't my cup of tea it felt flimsy and was a bouncy ride. The 7112 cost me $500 with a strong non smoking Kohler 12 hp. and a good BGB with a little work of welding up some worn linkages and readjusting and getting a 42" snow blower  on it it felt more like  a tractor should feel. Even after installing the poor mans power steering the steering wheel was still a little heavy for my wife to mow with which she likes to do. Came across a sovereign 18 hp with 42" deck and grass blower on the back with gray wheels and I guess rare power steering . Gentleman was asking $2000 with a 42" snow blade which I don't need . I called seller on the phone and I'm pretty sure he's a member here and if he isn't he should be because he bleeds simplicity orange. He told me he has been all through the tractor and currently is going to replace the bearings in the deck. Now after talking to seller for about 45 minutes about tractors we came to a price of $1,800 without the snow blade which here in Wooster Oh. area for a good running simplicity like this is the going rate. Now Charlie the seller after coming to an agreed price told me he is on his way to Florida until the grass starts growing again which I can't blame him.So this spring I should be buying a tractor and grass catcher that my wife can use . The only thing that he said could be done to it was repaint the hood and rear fender because the paint is thin and is starting to rust.So if every thing goes as planed I will be getting rid of the 7112 and replacing it with this.

I second the congrats.

I believe the tractor is a MFG#1692798, the last Sovereign with an OEM Command.  

I also have the "PECO" vacuum unit and love it.  "Your's" appears to be in much better shape.

      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
