Swap a Wheelhorse for a Simplicity, Uhm OK!!!

Recommended Posts

joshuaareed
So I did trade the wheel horse that I got this morning for a Simplicity 2012. And I feel great about it. I can now say I own a Simplicity, to go along with my Allis Chalmers. This was the Wheelhorse.


And This is the Simplicity 2012 that I got in Trade.










I think I did pretty good for myself, even though it needs a little TLC. Anyway I like it.

I probably would have kept and cleaned up the Wheel Horse. Easier to tear down & paint, Easier to access parts for maintinance, already has a low range for tilling and blowing, and the blowers are somewhat hard to find and do a great job. Overall much simpler than a Simplicity. Each to his own though.

Blasphemy! ;) Actually, I have been thinking about getting a Wheel Horse or maybe a Cub for the specific job of plowing snow. Haven't found anything yet, but if someone wants to trade a little Yeoman for a plow-equipped Wheel Horse, let me know. Tacey

WheelHorse tractors are very easy to maintain, and work on. The only thing I see wrong is the Tecumseh under the hood of the 'Horse.

i hear ya sam, the wheel horse is one well built easy tractor to work on. but the simplicity have them beat with the mower decks and the rear hitch design. i have 9 wheel hores's and 4 simplicitys. they all have their certain jobs i use them for. but most the hores's stay in the sheds. i keep one of the larger wheel hores's out for all purpose work, the landlord 2010 dually does all the gardening & heavy duty work, and the sim 101 & cub cadet 123 i use for mowing grass. but when winter hits anything and everything gets a snow plow mounted to it.

      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 
      Paul
