A " For Real" Garden Tractor

Recommended Posts

Check out this one -- I'd never heard of Simplicity selling an equivalent to the AC "G" model. Can you imagine a 17 HP Lombardini diesel, hydro transmission, two 3-point hitches with about 700 lbs of hydraulic lift on each, etc. Some great pics, too -- I want one!!!! But then, I'd probably have to sleep in the cold barn with it.... Kent[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/gii/gii.htm']http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/gii/gii.htm[/a]

Yes sir that looks to be one nice tractor. I just wonder if it has the "Great" Simplicity cut! By the way I have been out in the "cold" more then once anyway- infact I might just be close to it now. Best to all->happyjack<-

Looks more like a Saukville to me. Notice the single cylinder engine compared to the Allis G's 4 banger. G's are still popular with vegetable and other specialty farmers. And they are in great demand with collectors. An ugly duckling, but very functional.

I personally know the man that designed and started the manufacturing of the Saukville tractor. He was also the founder of the our antique tractor club in the SE Wisconsin area. I have been on the prototype of the Saukville tractor back in 1993 and it was very impressive.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
