Simplicity 5010

Recommended Posts

I had a guy call and offer me 2 Simplicity 5010's. Both with mower decks,one snowblower,and one tiller.Don't remember if they were hydro's or stick transmissions.Problem being both have bad engines. Don't know much about the 5000 Series.Looking around here,they appear to be based on the Broadmoor line,built in the mid 70's.Are they decent tractors? He's asking $500.00 for everything,which I thought was high,but he said he would negotiate. Any and all thoughts are appreciated.:D

They are basically a modified 738 Lawn tractor with a 10 HP Briggs vertical shaft. 3 speed transaxle. They are not a heavy duty tractor and neither are the tillers. The tillers work "OK" in loose soil , but the slowest ground speed of the tractor is too fast and you don't have "Live" power to the tiller. They generally were sold with the same 42" deck as the bigger 7000 series tractors but with a narrower hitch. They are good enough to mow with and do pretty well blowing snow. I have been paying about $50 - $100 for 5010 parts tractors that include decks, just to get the decks to use on the bigger tractors. From what I've seen, the tillers are about a $100 piece or so, and so are the blowers if in good shape. These are a good place to go with a good engine out of a MTD product with a bad deck or tranny. Selling it all out for parts I'd say his $500 price is top value, and that would be with him spending the time piecing it out. My opinion is that with him selling them whole not running, he's about $200-$300 too high. My Opinion...

Thanks for the imput,gang.I'm going to think about it a bit,before calling him back to go look.Sounds like an offer of about half what he's asking is in order!8)

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
