Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Why does this happen??

Recommended Posts


Down here in the sunny south, Simplicities are a bit harder to come by than up north, so, I cannot help you with your Simplicity problem. I thought I had a problem because of 7 Yazoo walk behinds, 2 Simplicity Landlords, an Ariens GT 16, 3 Snappers, a Ford 125, 3 Merry tillers, 1 Maxim tiller, a Garden Way Troy bilt, a couple Jacobsen turf mowers and an A Farmall. I decided I did, so I went out and got a Simplicity M1 walk behind tractor to keep my homebuilt 2 wheel tractor company. Had 3 Gravely machines that I decided to get rid of to clean the yard a bit, but traded for a Suburban 12 and a late model (mid 80s) Craftsman and a Husqvarna zero turn to make my Dixon ZTR not feel so lonely.

You do not seem to have a problem.

Chainsaws..14 or 15, most of which are boat anchors until I find parts or someone to buy all but the 3 I actually use occasionally.

You do not seem to have a problem at all!

Well I’m definitely an under achiever with only 4. I still have time!

I'm just getting #4 going too.  A free sovereign that's cost me over $300 so far.

Well! I feel that I'm an under ahiever with 5  2 2110s, 2 4212s, and a 42H (my 1st hydro). At one time I had a Big-10, the parts of which are in use nationwide. Still have the trans-axle.

      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
