It's a Simplicity. Not sure of the model. The tag will be on the gearbox facing the wheel. Be careful cleaning it because its just painted and comes off real easy.

Wow, those tires put a whole new meaning to knobby tires. I know I have seen tires like that before but it has been a while.

Lots of tractors at my house have that style of tires, something you didnt get on a riding model. There are actually about three diffenrt patterns for the knobby tires. The tractor in the picture is a model D. I have most of one here. They didnt survive well as the handle bars filled with water and rusted out or froze up and broke. In the photo it appears this one has had repairs done in this area. The correct motor for should be a model N briggs.

Thanks Guys, I thought is was a Simplicity, but wasn't sure. I will post more about it when I get it home.

BTW, the tires seem to be in OK shape, some dry cracking.

Looks identical to the 1951 Simplicity M-1 that I have. It does have the original Briggs on it but I forget the model. It does not run though but is on the to do list. I also have the busted and repaired handle bar issue.

I just went out and dug mine out of the snow to get a better comparison. My engine is a Brigs 9, but I noticed there are some slight differences in the rear end housing so I guess yours is not the M-1.

The one you have looks almost like the Montgomery Ward Plow Trac I own.

I don't know guys. Looks like a Model B to me.

There is a parts list for both the Model B and Model D in the second half of this manual. If you look at the rear hitch point for the Model B it looks like the one in Brian's pics. The one for the Model D is different.

Tim, Thanks for the photo, but I have a PlowTrac and it's not anything like it behind the engine. I have one posted here somewhere, LOL

Thanks Again
