Decisions AC 710 or Simp 3410? what would you do??

Recommended Posts

I went to another tractor graveyard today and there was a simplicity 3410 (~1972). It had a BS 10hp engine and a rear lift with a 3 speed trans & BGB. The guy said he would take $100.00 for the tractor (with a 42" mower deck). the body was not too rusty and the gas tank was missing along with the carburator. Now the decision part. A while back at another junk yard I found an AC 710 (~1978) 6 speed trans, it had a complete motor (Kohler)and a 42" mower deck. The body was rusty it also has wheel weights (plastic filled w/sand). That guy wants $150.00 (he also said it was running). What tractor would you puchase -if any??? PS I may be able to talk them both down. Thanks John H

MPH is right, Get both so you don't stay awake at night wondering what you COULD have done with the one you didn't buy. O buy the way, I think the AC ghost sounds something like BBUUYYYYYYY IT, BBUUYYYYYYY IT.

I agree with everyone else, tractors are like guns, no mater how many you have you can always have a couple more. Buy both! You could get two running tractors with a couple of more dollars invested and a little time. You could have his and hers tractors, or just sell one to another deserving individual, and gain another member to the club. John
