NEWBIE here saying Hi!

Recommended Posts


Hello to all of you!

I just bought my first old tractor, a Simplicity 738 with a tiller and snow plow. I am a chef originally from New Orleans, now in Haw River NC, and I am the Regional Coordinator for a non-profit org, Backyard Bow Pro, that donates thousands of pounds of hunter harvested venison and wild pig to food banks in 25 states.

I will use my new machine to work my 2 acres and also make food plots on all the farms and properties, so this new tool will inevitably feed THOUSANDS of needy folks!

I am sure to have questions, and I have already had quite a few answered just by reading! First thing, new solenoid...new key ignition, new belt, new seat and new paint! But, with a set of jumper cables I turned my 1/2 acre food plot this evening in less than 2 hours. This Simplicity Tractor is just incredible....maybe a new addiction has been started??!!!!

Glad to meet all of you!

Good to have you join us Derek. I hope some of us oldtimers can help you whenever you have questions. I don't know much about the 738 tractors myself, since I only have "large frame" tractors.

Welcome Derek! Many of us are using the small frame tractors like yours. I have a 616 yeoman myself, along with a few others. Any questions you have will be answered here by someone, I am sure. Also, post some pics of your tractor, we all love pics!

Welcome Derek.

Always great to add a new member to the club.

Those of us living in Wisconsin have long forgotten what dirt looks like!|) We are looking at fresh snow cover along with -16 below zero scheduled for Tues. AM.:(!

Looking forward to seeing a few pics of your tractor at work and remember that there are no dumb questions on this site....just a bunch of dumb answers (Just kidding).The guys on this site are amazing and a wealth of knowledge on all things mechanical.

Welcome to the club Derek,

It's definately an addiction. I owned my 63 Broadmoor for 12 years, then last summer I picked up a 64 Landlord & just this last Friday I picked up a 65 Landlord. I have some attachments but would like to collect more. It's tough to stop collecting.sm00 Good luck with your projects. You've come to the right place.

      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!😁
