716H tractor

Likely buying a 716 with deck off Craigslist down in Palmer for 200 bucks. Hasn't run in two years, judging from the aircleaner thinking it must be a Koler, the wife didn't know.

Are the 716's the same shorter tractor like the 900 series?

Won't be going down for another week for heart beat checkup and my last farmers market for the year

Thanks Willy.

Found the answer to my question on Simple Tractors. Darn, it 17 inches longer the the 900 series. Strangely, has a 2 in tighter turning redius.

Also learned it's the late series and is a Koler 341

Marty: As far as I know:

The 700 series is the same as the 7000 series Simplicity. The 900 series is the same as the 7100 series Simplicity. There are differences. The 7100 series had a slightly longer frame, I believe, and had other minor differences. Some of the very early ones may have still had the Vickers trans? Not sure. The 7100/900 series had a slightly longer frame, and a higher center of gravity if I am not mistaken. There was not a difference of 17", not even close. Maybe an inch or so, on the frame?

Otherwise they are very similar, and differences were minimal, as far as I know.
