Its unreal the stuff you can still find in the right places, there is a Case collector somewhere on the internet who has a 222 or something like that still in a crate that he tows around behind a restored case at shows, but I'd say the wheel horse has a few more years on the case. Certainly not an everyday sight, thanks for posting this.

i think your right dave. the b-10/landlords are a top notch A+ mower. all my wheel horse decks are sitting in the shed. i do like the WH rear discharge decks when pulling a sweeper thou.

I met a guy who claims to have a B112 Allis new in the crate. His father owned an Allis dealer, and they kept one. I don't know for sure if I believe him, but things like that do pop up now and then. The tractor is NOT for sale, and he wouldn't even let me see it. Therefore my suspicion, but maybe just overprotective too. I have also heard a few years ago from a reliable source of a Simplicity dealer passing from dad to son after the dad died. The son decided to finally do a real inventory of the warehouse, and they had a complete, in the crate late 1950's early 1960's Simplicity walking tractor. The running joke was that it would still have a warranty - new and unsold! Getting the parts would not have been easy though. Tim

      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
