Would be a close call,but I'd bet on the Wheel Horse. Lower center of gravity and more weight over the rear wheels and less over the front forbetter traction. The Briggs is going to have more torque, but alot more weight up front. If the Simplcicty wheels wouldnt break free The Siimplicity would win easy, but I'm betting the wheels would break free before the Wheel Horses would.

I would really go with the 725. The drive belt on the Simp is shorter than that of the Wheel Horse. But then you need to make sure the machines weigh EXACTLY the same with an operator on board each. Then the air pressures in each tire need to be EXACTLY the same,,, both front and rear. But before you try anything for real,,,, a scale model test should be done first. Oh heck, by the time all the preparation is done, it'll be time to put the tractors to bed for the night. Nice machines,,, all three of them!

As they sit in the photo the WH has the advantage with extra weight of the deck. Remove the the deck and I think the Simplicity would win based on a much better engine. It really comes down to which one spins its wheels first

When posting pictures please reduce to 640 x 480 pixel size as the 1024 x 768 is to large as it forces the written text side ways and makes the post hard to read as you have to scroll sideways to read it. Not every one has 21" monitors Thank You

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
