Went to look at what the guy with the 7HP and 10HP tractors today. Boy was I surprised. I couldnt beleive a B1, 725, rototiller, blade, plow cultivator and disks all fit in the back of the van. The guy tilled his garden a few years ago, and it was parked in the back of a shed. Tried out the 725, And it runs and drives:D It does alot for 7HP. Does wheelies, sometimes is pretty scary. But i guess its ok with the tiller on. Briggs engine fired up like nothing, but burns a fair bit of oil. Tiller seems to work, but havent been able to try it. I really like the 725. Got all this for $300CAD, that a good price? Also, got the manuals for a 42" deck, 900series brochure, 300 series manual, and others.

Now that's quite an array of equipment you're collecting there. Looks good all lined up like that. I'd say you got quite a good haul there. That's going to be a lot of fun. Congradulations.

Simplicity 725 & Allis Chalmers B-1 for $300 cdn. That was a good deal.;);) Now you have a AC B series. Your Simplicity 725 is newer than mine. My 725 was made in 1961 and has a shorter steering shaft. [url]www.simplicityva.com[/url] Karl

Ditto[:0]Some people have all the luck:DLooks like the 725 is in pretty good orriginal shape. The B-1 looks fairly complete except for the Koler under the hood. Congrats, nice haul.

Looks like you finally got some foot draggers! I'd say you did real well, does the B-1 run? Those old 7 1/4 hp briggs will surprise you. They're pretty powerful. Thats a nice selection of implements too.

The B1 dosent run, The Kohler seems like its stuck, it turns over, I dont think it'll run. If it dosent, I got a good head, carb, and ignition coil. I like the 725, It runs pretty good for 40+ years, and is pretty easy to start. Clutch dosent work right, but its ok if you switch real quick. Got the blade and plow mounted on my 410S today, and it sure is pretty hard to lift both at the same time with manual lift. You can really notice the 410 has 2x the horsepower even just driving. The plow works decent, but I have nowhere really to try it til it drys up. Also, would anybody happen to have a lift rod for the front blade? Thanks,

You got a good deal just on the 725. Buy a piece of 1/2inch cold roll for making a lift rod, its real easy to do. Just made up new one for mine as the one I got with my 725 was about an inch short which made the lift arm on the blade beat-up my new paint job.
