3112V - How much should I pay?

Recommended Posts

kevindb85
I have not seen it yet,{I know it's hard to give a value w/o seeing it} but the owner says good cosmetically, mows good but not running right now. Says carb problem. Has been sitting for a year. Problem is it could be anything wrong with the engine, who knows? Is this a model that I could part out and get my money back if it would be too expensive to get it going? How much of a demand is there for this model? I've looked it up so I know it has to be a '67-'69 model. Any wisdom appreciated!

I went to look at it today. What a mess! Yeah it had carb problems, it didn't even have one! His idea of the paint being "not mint but pretty good" in reality was fully rusted! No lights, weights, or anything to help redeem it. Needless to say, I didn't bring it home.

From your description, $75.00 sounds generous! Years ago, I looked at a B10. Pretty much complete, had been sitting outside a number of years. Had a plastic gas tank on it, because the original one was full of rust, and lying next to the tractor. Didn't run, but of course it just needed a simple repair, points adjusted I think they said. Came with a mower deck, which was rusted up, a snowblade, and a rear grader blade, which is all I really wanted. Seller says "make an offer". So I say $50.00, figuring I could go up if we were close. I picked my jaw up off the ground when the owner said "I was thinking more like $700.00!" Then he goes on to say how they've seen restored B10's going for $1500-$2000.00. I told him "well, you know what you've got", and walked away.;)

I paid $200 for one this summer but it came with a tiller 42 inch blower mower and hydro lift.Put in a different gas tank and carb and it works good and no smoke. I thought it was a good deal. Bob

      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
