Tom Carleton wants to know, and I can't answer him...[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/gallery/720_special.htm'][img src='http://www.simpletractors.com/images/gallery_images/ac720%20Side_small.jpg'][/a]

Did Simplicity ever have a "Sales Promotion" where certain tractors were packaged with options or accessories as a "Special"..?

Les recently sold a 720 special, it had no 3-point. To me, no 3-point would hardly make it special. Jordan[A href='http://www.simpletractors.com/clubhouse/For_sale_ad.asp?MsgID=1693&mode=short&startwith=0']http://www.simpletractors.com/clubhouse/For_sale_ad.asp?MsgID=1693&mode=short&startwith=0[/a]

The "720 Special" was a cheapened version of the 720, which had no 3 point hitch, PTO, or hydraulic spools, which were standard on the 720. I cant explain why the 720 pictured does have a 3 point. This is the first time that I ever saw a 720 with a "special" sticker on it. I have seen 620s' without a 3 point.

Here we go with the money factor again, but can someone take a shot at what one of those puppies can be bought for?? Sure like to get my hands on one. Dick

It could be that since the two tractors are identical that either the hood was replaced or incorrect decals were applied... just my two cents worth. john

All 720's are "special"! ;o) John S. - The 'hump' on the tunnel cover plate is for clearance over the rear PTO clutch pack. I've never seen a cover without the 'hump'. I guess if you didn't have a rear PTO, the cover plate could be flat. JeffG
