I just acquired my first Simplicity riding mower. I don’t know much about the Simplicity line as I collect Panzer’s. I’m up to about 20 of them now. Anyway, the Simplicity is a model 2012. I have no idea about what year or what's be worth. Any help on that would be appreciated. It came with a front blade, mower deck, rear lift of some sort, wheel weights and tire chains. The steering wheel looks as though it has been replaced with a high performance model! Lol. The engine turned over by hand and seemed to have compression.
Here are some photos of the Simplicity patiently awaiting my arrival to save it from the weeds and weather.
It has some type of rear lift assembly. Once I get it running, I may need a shout out on how it operates.
I traded a kid a 1974 Dodge Dart Swinger even up for a Case 580 CK tractor with a front end loader.
Here are pictures of the Dart.
Here are pictures of the Case.
Notice the "Like new" bucket.
55 gallon barrel full of concrete for counter balance.
He drove the Dart home and I followed with my truck and trailer to get the tractor. I pulled in his yard and I saw the Simplicity sitting in the weeds. It had obviously been sitting there a while. I loaded the Case on the trailer and then I just had to ask, “How much for the Simplicity?” He thought for a minute and said, “75.00.” I countered with 50 and he nodded in agreement. We pushed it up out of the weeds and loaded it onto my trailer. He dug the mower deck and deck shields out and I was headed home. When I got home I aired up the tires so it was easier to move around. I will add better pictures of the Simplicity when I get time. I had to take advantage of the break in the weather. I had to cut up and split some firewood for my outdoor wood burning furnace. I thought Spring was here! I pushed the Simplicity under one of my semi-trailer storage units and moved onto the wood splitting process. I also cleaned up the shed and yard a little bit. If I clean it up too much I find I have more room, which gets filled up by another GT! Then it’s back to square one.
Well, if anyone has tips, suggestions, recommendation or comments, feel free to throw 'em out there. This is a forum you know!
Have a great day guys! I know I did.
