1954 Simplicity riding mower

Recommended Posts

It's obviously a Wonderboy. See the New in 1962 section for more info. Here's a pic of the larger, later model. The "joystick" had been replaced by a steering wheel by then. I'll try to find out more, but I don't think it's a 1954 -- but later instead.... http://www.simpletractors.com/images/new_in_1962/wb_600.jpg

I acquired a Simplicity mower and I would like to know more about it. I was told by the previous owner that it was manufactured in 1954. It's really small and instead of a steering wheel, it has a combination steering/motion stick. The serial number is 990086 and the model number is 5413. If anyone can help me with more information, I would appreciate it.

Alicia,
Contrary to anything any resident wise-guys might tell you, that isn't me in that sales picture. (Man, you go on vacation and right away people start taking liberties.)
Just one point regarding your WB. I think you might mean that the model (Manufacturing or Product number) is 990086 and the S/N is 5413. The other way round won't get you far looking for parts.
I have (somewhere) the manual for the '58 WBs (the "400" and "575"), but it isn't quite correct for your model. Perhaps another member can help.
Welcome to the club!
Fred

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
