Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


rear engine riders

Recommended Posts

I know where one is just up the road, problem is that it's still in use every year..... When I first noticed it a year ago, it was up by the road with a plastic sled over it. I was waiting for a day when someone was home but no luck. It almost looked like it never moved, except the grass was still getting cut every week. Then one day I saw that they used it to cut the grass, not a bigger tractor!!! One of these days I'll stop by and hopefully have a chat with the owner....

I used an AC Scamp rear engine with an 8 hp Briggs for years. I parked it when the engine went and have been scavenging tires and a few other parts off of it for other projects. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the same versatility as tractors and around our farm the pieces of equipment that can do more than one job if needed tend to get priority treatment. The 30 inch cut was also a drawback for our place. It really should be fixed up since the transmission on it is cast iron and heavier duty than some of the big 20 hp garden tractors on the market today. It never gave me a problem other than the tired engine. Too many projects, too little time.

        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
