It's smaller than an Oaf and not as sporty as a Knave!  Sorry, couldn't resist!

Perhaps Simplicity's attract simple minds?

Still it was funny!

In the flesh!  They are becoming difficult to find in good shape.  Crazy-neat machines to ride.  They are a ball at shows, but tough on the rear end if it's rough turf.  You're literally driving a push mower!

Unfortunately, that one is sticking around, probably for a long, long time.  It's a beloved member of the family :thumbs:

I see you don't let it up on the couch though!
Gotta make sure it knows its place.

Oh no! Last time we allowed that, it dripped oil on mommas leather, and then there I was, out in the front yard with a garden hose, scrubbin it off!

Grew up on a 515. Dad traded it for a clean 525 at the Simplicity dealer 9 years later. Having a key start was the greatest thing in the world after pulling on that 515 for so many years! Would love to have one of them back.

Does it have a bagger or do you rake the carpet after mowing?

Got a simplicity 525 serf in great shape, but was wandering how to adjust the belt to make it go faster? It used to fly in 3 rd gear and go up hills without any problems. Now, I have to use feet power to help it go uphill. Is there a repair manual for this tractor? I have looked everywhere and all I see is the parts manual.image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg
