810GT - tell me about them

Recommended Posts

I noticed a 810GT came up for sale not to far from me (but its a ways). Before I drive across the country side what can you tell me about them? Are they a true heavy duty garden tractor or an over rated riding lawn mower? Owner says it has a 12hp Briggs with a recent overhaul and that its a bit tough to get into low gear at times.

I have the equivilent Simplicity, 6000 series (6011 Broadmoor II). I'v had it 4 years, use it every week to cut grass. I've also pushed snow with it, and one winter I had a snowthrower attachment. All worked flawlessly. Oh, and I've hauled a ton of stuff with a Simplicity wagon. It's easy on gasoline. What's not to like? Tacey

I thibnk the transmission si the same as the older broadmoors except for the longer axles and drive pulley. The frames are like the 4000-6000 Series simplicitys and are ok for weight. The trans is really strong and has alot of pulling power. I think they are a nice combo on frame and trans.

I had one of these and sold it, it was a nice riding mower but it does not compare to a large frame tractor as far as attachments and these series were not designed for Hi-low units. I do think there may have been a sleeve hitch offered for these.

I'd say it's neither of the above. It is a medium-duty small frame garden tractor. It had a rear tiller available, as well as the other attachments I mentioned above. Have you read about it on the SimpletrACtors web site? And, it has an excellent cut quality for your lawn. Tacey
