B1 or 725?

Recommended Posts


I have now 1 AC B1 loader which has become my parts tractor and a running really well Simplicity 725 which is my runner. I am going to install the loader on to the 725. I will also install the longer steering column from the B1 to the 725. My question now is which model do I choose and is it just a color preference? Is a B1 loader more valuable than a 725 loader? The metal is really good on both. This could also become a Allicitiy tractor. I also intend to put the dual rear tires on the 725 or B1 now that I have the wheels. I will have to fabricate the wheel connectors. Any thoughts?

Since my 7 and 9 year old are helping me with there tractor project I will let them decide what we shall do.

id="quote">Hreat idea! It will mean the most that way. Simplicity didnt offer loader until the 412 loader for the Landlord. The B-1 and L10 loaders were Allis only.Yes, you can still use a mower with the loader installed, but you may find yourself starved for power as the loader pump runs with the engine.

Good point. Didn't think of that. I am putting my B1 loader on the 725 because my boys want a red tractor. I guess I will buy another tractor for the mower deck. Wife will be thrilled to hear that. Great picture of your children and thank you for the input.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
