The one that runs, looks like an allis chalmers b series. Any know the model?


Looks like it's mostly a Simplicity 725 with some B series parts. Mowing deck, arm rests and part of rear lift are B series. Engine is not original to the tractor.

The one he said is a Massy "Work Horse".


Definitely a moto-mower. My guess would be mid to late 60s.


The original engine appears to have been replaced. The hood has been cut to fit the exhaust. The engine appears to be red - expected white to match the gas tank.

The battery cover is missing and the choke lever is gone.
Not sure if the seat is original.

I wouldn't see it being worth more than $200. Less if it's not running.
Maybe add another $100 for the push blade.


Just my opinion - could be wrong.

The one that runs is either a 700 or 725 Simplicity. It could be a Garden Mark Squire. the difference in the 700 and 725 is horse power. a 700 is a 7hp briggs the 724 is a 7.25hp Briggs

The guy is asking $700.00 for the little Massey. If you'd like his phone #, send me a pm and I'll give it to you. His prices appear to be going up a little...????


He's way high if It's not a Massey. Just my Humble opinion.
