Here's the deal

Recommended Posts


This email was sent to the Simpletractors webmaster (Kent).He passed it on to me because I am close to there (75 miles).Hello, I live in Western New York, about 1 hour south of Buffalo. I have a few parts for a Simplicity walk behind that I would be willing to give to someone doing a restoration. I have a dump box and at least 1 (maybe 2) 30 inch snowplows. The are from the early 50's. I have no need for them. If someone in your club wants them, they are free if someone will pick them up. I will not ship them (too heavy). I would hate to take them to the scrap yard. Thank You, Bob id="red">I met the gentleman today and brought home what he say's is a trailer / dump cart and snow plow for walk behinds.The cart body has some rust holes in the box, and the axle brackets were torched off. Also, it looks to me like some new steel was added to the back to accommodate a wooden tailgate. I'm not familiar enough with the walk behind stuff to be sure the cart is SimplicityThe plow appears nice and not used a lot. What you see is what there is.The deal is, you want it to use or refurbish, not to sell, and you arrange shipping or pick it up here you can have it. I donated my time, and about $60 in gas to keep them out of the scrap yard. I will hold them as long as needed, or take with me to any show I attend this year.If anyone wants any of it, "first come, first served" ask only in this topic.

Dan, true Simplicity walk behind carts are same as the regular carts in all ways except;they had a seat, some had brakes; the seat was the latch and the tongue/hitch was longer and made to hook to a walker. Here are some pics of one without the hitch adaptor for the walker....Dave

Thanks Dave. I had my doubts, based on the color, the wheel style, and the round tongue rather than square.

If no one wants it, maybe I'll make a steam show bus out of it. :o:O

Round tongue means it may have been a Gravely. Gravely connects their sulky with a small upside trailer-type ball. The "hitch" is split into two pieces that goes inside the round tongue, clamps onto that ball, and is held in place with a pin...

The wheels appear to be original. Anyone know if Gravely, or who might have used those bolt together rims with tiny little bolts to the hubs ??The color hints Bolens to me...

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
