Morning, Happy new year 2014.

Would like to ask a few questions pertaining to the simplicity.

How long is the tractor with the snow thrower attached ?

I would imagine the set up to be around 600 lb ? without the mower deck.

My Landlord manual does not show how the snow thrower attaches to the A-frame, some pointer or pics would be a huge help.

The seller has a Allis Chalmers parts tractor, would anyone be interested in it ?

Thanks.

The tractor and blower will fit on an 8' trailer. I'd put the weight at 800 pounds. The Allis Chalmers will have all the same parts except that some sheet metal may be different. Keep it!  Once you have used this tractor, you will fall in love with it. Then you will want more of them. I've got around 8 of those Simplicity built tractors from the 60s. See the thread from the other day on lawn mowing. I thought the price alittle high but it is an unusual one. Good Luck, Rick

The tractor weighs 676#, dry.  The blower, 140#, and the deck, 125#.

 

The blower will attach with 2 pins, below and slightly behind the axle.  This picture is of a Weedcutter attachment, but shows the same hitch design and mounting position....your blower will attach the same way.  There is a rectangular cutout on the upright portions of the blower hitch...those slide right onto the axle, and the lower pins hold everything in place. 

 

As far as interchangeable parts go, the Squire may not have an adjustable differential, as Simplicity and Allis models did.  My Squire 9 does not. 

 

What model is the Allis?  If it is of the same vintage the only difference in the Allis is the addition of armrests to the seat, grill, paint, decals and tire brand.  If it is a '65-'67, it will have different steering components.  If the Allis is a '68 or later, it will have different sheet metal...then there was the introduction of different transmission and bevel gear box types, among other small changes.

Thanks boyscout862, huge help, wanted to make sure.

Had a 70's Cub with hydro tranny and 60's sears SS12, both weighted about the same as the Squire. I remember the sears blower being very heavy.

I think the going word here is Heavy Duty, really heavy, love it, better the the light flimsy GTs on the market now. I can flip the Craftsmen riding mower end for end,....Cheeeeeap.

Many thanks Talntedmrgreen for the pics, a huge help, as for the parts AC he stated a B-10 but sounded unshure, can take pics of it and send them to you and go as far as instructing the seller not the post it until you have made contact.

Learned a little more about the difference in the MW Squire to the AC, thanks.

The seller sounded unshure, spoke of a lot of time passing since looked at it, knew for sure it was a AC.

Then i shall post the model no. here when for sure.

I should of posted this in the M/W thread, hope you guys don't mind.

Very busy today, tommorow is bad weather, rain and ice, same with Monday so the pick-up will be next saterday, asked the buyer to remove the ad so the tractor will not be sold, he did get some call in regarding it.

The Allis parts tractor is a B1, said the seller started to restore and paint it. Said he had to travel to pick up the tractor, PM me for the price, his name and phone number.

 

Heading out, still more work to be done, will be back ASAP.

Thanks guys, very high bitter cold winds with strong gusts forced me to stop everything and prep for power loss. Temp dropped like a rock, yet again the weather man was wrong for this area, just a look at the sky told me what was coming, nasty.

This one will clean up really nice, will leave it in original patina for now, love the headlights and single ''racing'' stripe down the hood with the bronze jacket so prevalent from the 60's era. Basic and solid with no cup holders or seat warmers, god ! miss these old riders from the 60's !

Runs good, drives good, clutch, belts and band brake is good, new spark plug, engine oil and gear box oil, tires are solid and in great shape.

85 % original. I made room for this, kicking all the Snappers into the Barn for now. More close ups of the tractor will come, putting in the starter for the Ford 1200 today.

Below is the 42 inch mower deck, very good shape, solid and ready to go right now, 36 inch snow thrower ready to go right now, hardly ever used and here is the wopper :hitting_self_roller: convinced the seller to sell me the Allis Chalmer's B-1 snow/dozer plow :rocker:Edges used down but solid shape.
