You're never satisfied, but then neither am I... 8o)

I know there's no Model 700 pictures on the site -- if you'll provide sales literature on the Model 700, I'll gladly include it... And DLC when do we get pictures of your baby in the Gallery?

Come on you guys-"Kent" provides us with this site and all the information he can so let's take a break ok. All kidding aside check out the Library at simpletractors and you will see that Kent has information on the 725 and the last I knew all you had to do was ask him for it. If I recall Mark Waite of University Lawn Equipment,Inc. provided it for us. Now if Kent can find the time with everything else he's is doing for us to make it available. Thanks Kent for everything. And everyone this was meant in the up most positive way. Still around here some ->jackl-happyjack<-

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to point out that there may be more info here than some may think. A search turned up the following info -- note that "confusion" with AC 700 series turned up a lot of "false links" also....

History of it:
http://www.simpletractors.com/Main/history.htm

Engine Info:
http://www.simpletractors.com/parts/engine/landlord.htm

Mower Deck for it (there's others that'll fit):
http://www.simpletractors.com/what_fits/atch_(pg17).htm

Belts for it:
http://www.simpletractors.com/parts/belts/belts_(pg9).htm

So, while there isn't a whole section devoted to it, it isn't a total loss nor mystery. I also couldn't put multiple links on this one message... 8o(

My brother-in-law bought an old Simplicity 700 but he can't find much information on it. He doesn't have access to the internet, and the local dealer doesn't know anything about that model.

Does anybody know how to tell what year this tractor is? There is a plate under the seat with the number 10076 stamped in, but the rest of the plate is illegible. Engine is a Briggs & Stratton, model 19, type 706655, serial 622095. From earlier posts, this seems to be an earlier version of the 725, late 50's or early 60's?

Everything appears to be in working order, so manuals aren't critical, but does anybody know if reprinted parts/service manuals are available? Anybody have manuals on this model for sale, or know where to look for old literature?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Well...I didn't use a search engine, I checked under "Simplicity" and "History" and didn't see it, thought I had looked harder several months ago when I had inquired about the 700. Until I come up with a better excuse, can I just say it was past my bed time? Didn't mean to put more pressure on ya Kent. And Dave, you're welcome to drop by and use my camera to make that picture available *<];o) Ok, I sit down and shut up now.

From the response to a previous inquirey, you have it all pegged about right. About '60-'61 I think. And you're right about the info availability on it too. Even a certain website seems to totally omit the 700 (ahem). Check the links page for contact info for Simplicity Manufacturing. Good chance they will still have the manual/parts list available. Many parts still available too!

Thanks for the response. This is a great site, with a lot of participants! It looks like you've put a lot of work into it, Kent.

Hi Bruce, I can't speak for all but I have been there-done it and wished I had taken a nap after I pushed that there "SUBMIT" thing. I am not saying you did anything wrong cause its not for me to judge anyone at anytime. I have enough just to keep taps on myself. But I found out one thing for sure on this site and that is if ya kick yourself hard enough it starts to hurt after awhile. People on this site-"FRIENDS" that is do understand alot more then given credit for. Thanks to all your friend->jackl-happyjack<-

Hey just after thought, has anyone thought about having someone from -Auto Swapper or some other for sale magizine come out and take a picture or pictures of your tractor. If you have already done this please let me know how it turned out and how much more for a color photo???-Or does anyone from the club just travel around and do this for a living and if not just maybe I might start doing it just for a place to stay while I travel around - "NOT" ->happyjack<-
