Garden Mark by Simplicity?

Recommended Posts

prestcpa1
I just saw this Garden Mark on Craigslist. It looks similar to other simplicity of that time. Does anyone know if these are very common or worth the $150 asking price? Thanks!

It should be the same as a '64 or so Landlord, I think. Even looks like it has original Wards Riverside tires on the back8D. "asking $150" Offer $100, parts are worth that;)

Thanks for the advise - I think I'll drive down on Saturday and offer $100 for it. It's not far from where I live. Just one more thing that will make my wife happy! ngr2

This may be the same guy that also has a tiller for sale for the 4 5 and 6000 series. If it is he is pretty nice to talk to and deal with.

Here are more pics. I inquired about it, wanting it, but knowing I'll never get around to fixing it. I have a free early model B10 sitting in the shed for a couple of years now and haven't been to get to it. If a club member cant get this, great!

It's only 2 hours away from me, and the price is good, I just can't justify buying it to sit in my shed. Hopefully someone else here will get it.

Sorry, I'll try pasting this again. One thing I noticed is the yellow bracket for the starter generator. It looks like it might be from an Allis.

As far as the tiller goes, I don't know if it will fit the Squire or not. Simplicity made quite a few different tractors, and I don't know what tractor models that tiller will fit.

Don't know if anyone from here bought it, but it sold Monday. I just received the message in my e-mail today. I wasn't waiting for anything, unfortunately I don't have a place to store it, the money to work on it, nor the time. I'll be lucky to finish the engine swap in my 917 by the time I need to mow grass.
