One Wheel Tractor Pictures

Recommended Posts

I have this tractor and am looking for any information that might be out there. The model information on the tag is damaged but appears to be model A-448. The engine is a Briggs model U, type 204073, serial 113182. I'm not sure if the engine is OEM. I was a Simplicity Dealer for many years with my father starting the business in 1947 or 48. He did not sell this machine but acquired it from a customer. Appreciate any help that is out there.

:O Larry, I may be wrong and I stand to be corrected but I think that tractor is an example of the first ones made by Simplicity. There was a restored one at the Findley Ohio show in 2010. Don't know any more about them. The one in Findley was powered by a Briggs. Dave.

Thanks for the info so far. There was a cultivator attachment with the tractor when we first had it but I can't find it so I'm afraid it might have been discarded without realizing what it was. Thinking about putting it on EBay. If anyone has an interest, let me know.

        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
