Simplicity made Massey Ferguson

Did Simplicity ever make lawn tractors for Massey Ferguson?   I came across a pic of one but I don't know if someone just changed the paint and decals on it.

Simplicity made the MF 2818H from 1995-99. The OEM power steering was offered in 1997-99. It is the same as the Simplicity Sovereign. 1995-97 were powered with the Kohler Command CH18 and 1998-99 were powered with the Kohler Triad TH18. Not sure what engine is powering your tractor. Many of the Triads have been replaced.

Looks like a 42" snow thrower has custom made front wings. As I have never seen one like it.

@Bill725 is spot on.  

Here's the cover page for the parts manual for the tractors that are like the one you pictured:

I'm thinking the original tractor had a Triad and it was repowered - that would make it a MFG# 1692953 or 1693415.

Here an old picture of the 1999 I used to have that I bought new...

Super nice looking  tractor with the Power Steering. It had the triad in it. After all the hub bub about the triads biting the dust I sold the tractor when the warranty ran out before it started having problems.

That  was one of the first Johnny buckets made for Simplicity  by John. I sent him all the measurements he needed at the time and bought one when he got them done. That picture was taken after I set it up on the tractor but before it went into use. It was no show queen. I moved  2 single axle dump trucks full of river rock to put around the house under the bushes and such.  Also moved a tandems worth of  road mix gravel to various places. From there did a number of loads of other material.  It got well used. Then I got into the loader tractor scene and sold it. Also had a Buccateer and a converted craftsman front bucke along the way.

Nice tractors.  By the placement of the oil filter, it appears to have an aftermarket Predator or other engine in there.

No, as far as I’m aware.
