Sunstar on eBay

Recommended Posts

Saw this Simplicity Sunstar on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2331175392&category=43562 and was wondering how it stacks up next to my AC712? I am a neophite and am still trying to get a handle on where each model tractor lines up. Is the Sunstar considered a large frame tractor? Even with the 20hp kohler in it can it really do any more work than my 12hp AC?? I would like to have the 60" deck but otherwise I don't see this sunstar as any better than my current AC712|) Dan

Dan The SunStar was the replacement for the pow'r max. It is larger than the 7000 or 7100 series tractors but not quite as big as a pow'r max. They use drive shaft powered attachments. I don't know if they can do more than your 712 but they can do it faster. attachments are more expensive. They do have a 3 point hitch available for them.

Dan it's a pre '94 vintage. Mine has a 20HP Command OHV and that's about a '94 according to engine S/N. It has power up the ying yang, power options I like, but depending how much you want to get out of it the attachments are pricey. All I would want for mine is a snow plow if it comes around cheap. I bought mine real cheap, need it like a fifth hole in the head but, what the heck, it's a Simplicity.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
