I really doubt that this is a Simplicity built machine, anybody know what it really is? [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/old-simplicity-garden-tractor-/280559260550?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4152a29386[/url] John U

By the looks of the ad and the sellers rating w/feedback, I personally would steer clear of this one. Seller also offers FREE shipping???? Lack of caps, puncuation and poor spelling in the description also throw a red flag. I think I found something. http://www.mytractorforum.com/showthread.php?t=77971&page=9


Looks like a Struck Turf Rider.

It definitly is made by the Struck Corp. in Cedatburg Wisconsin. It is an older model as they do not make these any more. It has the 16 HP Tecumseh OHV engine and I believe the Peerless 4 speed + reverse transmission. You don't see those ever day. The Tecumseh engine was finiky about the valve lash settings.

I also liked the one about the guy that worked in the factory. But the seller doesn't even know the brand of the tractor.sm00sm00sm00
