Thanks to several people for three point hitch info for my tractor. My next question(s) is whether the three point hitch allows this tractor to be mated up with a small backhoe. I see plenty of makers of backhoes that seem to be saying they will work on compact tractors with a three point hitch. But I also don't think it is quite that easy with a Simplicity. So where's the hitch?

NO, its an aluminum peerless transaxel case. And you don't want a backhoe on a compact tractor without a subframe. I've seen one 720 with a backhoe. Buy the little massey for 16K

"will work on compact tractors" First off, a Sunstar is not a "Compact Tractor", it is a "Garden Tractor". Those backhoes you speak of are cat. 1, and as Ambler says, even on those larger tractors they require a sub frame. That said, there are a few backhoes around that are cat. 0, which is the size on the Sunstar.

      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!😁
