Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


New to the site and a new toy

Recommended Posts



I have had a 7116H for years and I love the tractor.  I am having some issues with it, and I saw this 4212 H tractor for sale on the side of the road 2 months ago.  They wanted more than I was willing to pay.  It also had a yard collector attached, which I have never seen.  Two months go by, and it was still there.  I called on it and talked to the owner and he said that it looks like I will take care of it.  $100.00 later, she is the 7016’s little sister.  Some carb work, fuel, starter gear, and throttle body shaft replacement and she is in good shape.

I like that cart that you have there...I had a 4212 that I picked up in the Spring and cleaned it up and sold it...I was tempted to keep it, just because it is a cool looking tractor, and it did a nice job on the lawn...it is old, but it is a good working littlee machine and I think that you will like it

you might be able to use this

Thank you for the nice welcome. I think the little cart is really cool as well.  I am awaiting a new throttle body for the carb, and a governor spring.  Fixed the starter already.   I was also lucky that I had a clear bag of original manuals and service dates and even the sales receipt!

I will update more as i go.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
