The guy down the street stopped by the other day, asked me if I wanted an Ariens pancake mower. He said it would run for a while then would quit. I took my 6 year old down the block and she steered it back as I towed it.....

I guess rear engine rider would be the same thing, just as kids we called 'em pancake mowers because the deck is so big and round because it's a single blade. Maybe I'll turn the deck into one of those weed mowers mounted out front.....

LOL Kirk, I thougt thats what it was. When I was young we called them bathtub mowers. The Simp Cavalier, Some Cub Cadets and others with the fiberglass bodies looked to us like an upside down bathtub. :D

Kirk, I have an Ariens Emporer (pancake mower). These are great little lawn mowers. Most people who have them just keep fixing them because they cut so nicely and are pretty darn dependable. I just bought one from ebay not long ago to keep mine going. I like the turning and tight areas I can get into with this, not to mention the bagger saving me a lot of time and trouble.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
