I found this site by accident several weeks ago and have been reading, reading, and more reading ever since. I do have a question. I have a 2012 and just purchased a b-10 and a b-12. The 2012 and the b-12 both have a decal on the seat frame that indicates HI-LOW. However, I don't think either tractor has it. No additional levers or anything. I know the HI-LOW changes the gear ratio but how does it do it? David

It's a 2-speed pulley for the standard 3-speed tranny. Here's the Operator's Manual: http://www.simpletractors.com/operation/high-low/high-low.htm The foot-draggin' Clubhouse Custodian...

Thanks Kent.... I use the 2012 a lot in the garden and I believe the Hi-Lo will benefit me a lot. I will be looking around for this. I plan to restore the B-10 and B-12 and later on I know I will have a lot of questions. Many thanks for your help. David

My 2012 also has the decal, but no hi/lo. I also have a B-10 which I recently hooked up a tiller to, and I think I could benefit from the hi/lo. Seems like mainly just to hold her back. I have to slip the clutch to travel slow enough, and when I do this the tiller grabs and propels the tractor forward. I have not seen any of these for sale, but would like to see some exploded views of this thing. maybe could build one?

      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.
