Tried out my simplicity model l walker with a Montgomery wards blade today. I was messing in a little bit of snow that's left over. Its froze again so its hard and crusty. I didn't know if it would do it, but it didn't work to bad. All in all the snow was about 2 or 3 inches deep.

Man that brings back many memories. When I was a kid ( over 55 yrs ago) we had a 2 wheel tractor like that. We used to keep the drive plowed in the winter and graded in the summer. Looks like it ran good and did a great job. Thanks for sharing with us. Roger.

Nothing wrong with that, love it all the same, love Clintons, looks like it belongs there, matches the wheel weights.

I'll bet she pulls just as good :thumbs:  simple solid.

There's just something about seeing old iron in action. I bet that's one happy old walk behind! :smilewink:

We had a Simplicity walk behind when I was growing up in the 50's. Dad bought the dozer blade, front chassis weight, and ride-on trailer with the tractor. I hated the thing back then with an unholy passion. With my puny little butt in the seat on the trailer, any irregularity in the ground out on our woods road (like soft spots or tree roots) would result in me being yanked out of the seat by that damnable tractor.

 

On the other hand, not much would stop it either. And it did a pretty decent job of clearing our very long driveway of snow. The fact that it had reverse was certainly a blessing to a young operator.
