They seem to mow OK on perfectly flat terrain with light to moderate grass...... But my yard ain't exactly all flat.... Its on Ebay now. One savings grace about it....at least the damn thing has running boards:D:D:D

that be a hydro with hydraulic lift by the looks of it. If it wasnt so far away that 14 hp kohler is in great demand here in western ny for pullers.

Its a 1450 Hydro with a haydraulic lift. You guys have to admit, the previous owner took care of it. The guy called me and I didn't want it too bad. Sight unseen I told him I didn't want to insult him but I only had $100 to give for it( I just spent all my money on a new front door and storm door). HE said fine, come get it and get it out of here, he was cleaning out the shed. Based on his description I expected a beat piece of junk, I got there and the above is what I found. Other than a dead Battery and maybe slight oil usage I can't find anything wrong with it. To top that off it came with a vaccum collector with no cart. Then if that wasn't enough he asked if I'd just take some other stuff to help him clean up. A Homelite straight shaft string trimmer, a Homelite gas blower, and a Homelite 330 chain saw. The chain saw is the only one that I couldn't get started once home. The other two work perfectly. He had 4 newer MTD and Montgomery Wards type tractors & mowers he uses....go figure... Gotta give you guys the shock treatment once in a while to keep ya on your toes...:D

Nice rig. I've three simplicitys and one cub cadet. Over the years I've had alot of different garden tractors. Simplicity, cub cadet, bolens, wheelhorse, craftsman, AC. I wish this club would take ask the members to vote on which make of garden tractor the members like the best. Yeah-AC and simplity will come out first, but it would be fun to see the rankings.

I recently had a 12 Hp Cub Hydro given to me. I swapped the rear wheels and tires with one of my ACs and then gave the whole tractor to a friend. I liked two things about that tractor, the two individual rear disc brakes and the manual front PTO. The rest of the tractor was no comparison to the Simplicities and ACs.
