Simpicity 5216

Recommended Posts

To All,
I'm looking at buying a Simplicity 5216 that has been
in storage around 8 years. Seller said he thought it
was about 10 years old. It has a vertical shaft B & S
16 hp engine and hyrostatic drive. Seller has put in
a new battery, filters, and new front tires. Says it
runs good.
I would like to know:
1. Will the 5216 will take a dozer
blade and tiller?
2. What brand is the hydrostatic drive?
3. Any known problems?
Please reply ASAP. I may try to buy this weekend.

1. Blade yes - tiller no.
2. Eaton
3. Not really but make sure ALL trans mounting points are secure. I'm servicing one now and they are really very nice - or at least can be.

      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
