I had a guy call me with a 7119 he was selling. Immaculate condition,etc,etc,but it had a blown Kohler. He was trying to get 6 bills for it.Good luck,I thought,as I told him I wasn't interested at that price.....

There's a little more to the story. This tractor has been sitting behind my Simplicity dealer's shop for most of a year with the blown engine. I have coveted the ag tires and weights for the whole time and have inquired regularly about it. The dealer said the owner wasn't interested in selling. I stopped in this evening after work to tell the dealer about my new wireless ISP service because he is also interested. Turns out that another customer is looking for the deck from this tractor and the owner wants $500 for the whole shebang including a snow blade before he goes to Florida next week. The way I calculate 2 new ag tires at Tractor Supply would run better than $120 so I get everything else for $30.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
