Wards did sell a conversion for the walk behinds to make it a rider and also sold them as riders. I know Midland made them but not sure about Simplicity. However, unless this one has been highly modified, this isn't one of them. Looks like a gear reduction Wisconsin to a drive down the front and going back the tractor? How about some more pictures of the way the sulky hooks and the drive, axle, and steering? Looks intersting whatever it is! OH Ya....... Welcome to the forum!!

Welcome to GTTalk and the hobby. That is an interesting machine. We do need to see more pictures to help you figure it out. Does it articulate behind or under the seat? I remember a neighbor, 50 years ago, trying to turn a BD walk behind into a rider. It didn't work.

I have a manual for one of the old Wards walk behinds but don't know how to post it.

I just realized that that looks alot like the front of a very heavy rear tine rototiller I saw several years ago.

The tractor is a Pacific made by the Pacific Hardware and Supply. I had a picture of one sent to me for verification.
