It was a nice day and being tired of tripping over things in the shop,I fired up the 1960 Simplicity 700 and hooked up the old trailer. I try to keep bulky stuff moved to the out buildings so that I have more room to work but with the colder weather I had been slacking lately. I had parts from redoing the front of my wife's Explorer after she hit a Deer a few months back and some parts from a F250 that I done some work to so I loaded the trailer and started hauling. Then Katie and I (my youngest daughter) decided to go take a look at the creek and throw some rocks in the water.
Nice day to move a few things.simplicity 700

Always good when you can get the tractors out in the winter time!

I really like the looks of your Simplicity 700. Glad you got some seat time. Using the garden cart is how we move a lot of the heavier stuff in and out of the garage to work on. I can't tell from the pics but what brand trailer is it? I love the look of the high swept rear fenders.

It is too Bolens1000. I have had this tractor since '93 and love to run it. I love the putt putt of the cast iron model 19 Briggs. I need to rebuild the starter generator but I'm in no hurry because one pull from the rope cup on the bevel gear box and the old model 19 is putting away.

Thanks George. I have taken a lot of care over the years to keep the fenders from getting bent down,which is what happens to a lot of them because people use them to support themselves getting on and off the tractor. The trailer is a old (and well worn) Ace hardware trailer. I need to build or buy a bigger trailer. When the grand kids are here they always want to go on rides and with 6-8 kids sometimes,we need more room.
