810GT - tell me about them

Recommended Posts

dhermesc
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

      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
