Welcome Richard! You will find the guys on this site are among the best anywhere, always ready to help with problems, and very knowledgeable about Simplicity/Allis equipment. I tell everyone this is the best $10 I ever spent. Look forward to seeing your pics. I have an Allis 810GT which is about the same as a 6010, and have the deck, blower, tiller and push blade for it. Again, welcome!! Steve

Welcome! Hope you find some of the information, banter and humor as enjoyable as I do. Learn many things, and the money is well worth the investment. Always good to have another 6216 around to share ideas, issues and problems with. Still working on finding a tiller. Enjoy!

Since nobody else has told you, you have to be a Member before you can post a picture. Users are not allowed to post pictures or links to pictures. It only costs $10 and is well worth it.

Beut of a 6200....tell me more about the seat - does the arm rests get in the way of movement? My yard does not justify them as I am always turning or reversing and not to many straight aways...

I haven't had a problem with them getting in the way. They fold up to get on and off the tractor. I am a firm believer in user interface. Comfort is good! The seat also slides front to rear. I didn't even have to drill new mounting holes. The back folds down also which I have found handy when mounting attachment. Nice flat place to put the pins and tools. I think it was 100 at tractor supply When you are operating any form of technology it is best to have good interface devices. If its a computer you want a nice screen, mouse, keyboard because these are the things you touch and see. don't you agree?

Looks like she's dressed up nice and ready for the ball. Echo the welcome call. No better group of folks to listen to your(my) addiction (or if you want to be politically correct - hobby).
