Check out this picture of a 9HP Landlord when it was new...
I found you on the internet and thought I'd drop you a note.
I'm attaching a picture of me and my cousin on our tractor in 1964. The 3 boys
had saved up money and along with my Mother's help bought this tractor for my
Dad's birthday.. We also bought a snowblower attachment and used this tractor
mercifully for many years. It served us very well. In 1976 my Dad sold this
tractor in a tag sale and we got a Gravely 548 which I still have today. I have
a 30' brush hog, 40' mower deck and a 30' snowblower for it and maintain it
beautifully. Back around 1990 I found a gravely 810 in wonderful shape and
bought it with a snow blade only. I wanted to get a riding tractor. I have a
Wheel Horse cart for it, the one with 4 wheels with the front end wheels that
turn (mini farm cart) I love these tractors and have become a fan of older
Gravely products but deep down inside still wish I could find a Simplicity
tractor like the one photographed.. The Gravely was a big seller in the Hudson
Valley area of New York which I live in.. I have not seen many older Simplicity
tractors at all.. I don't think they survived as well as the Gravely's did.. I
also like the John Deere 810...
All my best,
