Don't know if it's worth $400, but it is unusual.

$400 cash firm
***This can be used on a regular tractor or rear engine riding mower like: craftsman troy bilt john deere cub cadet allis chalmers mtd yardman and many more that has a very common rear hitch ( the 1 with a hole in it because this is attached with a pin or a normal bolt)
Never seen one in this good of shape. Was made for the old two wheel simplicity tractors which turns in into a riding mower. It dumps, has removable tailgate, seat tips forward, has dual brakes, very solid, totally functional. Serious collectors only. Please leave your valid telephone number when responding to my add. I will only call you. Thank you.

it is in really good shape, but I don't remember them having that type of rim and tire. They look like wheel barrow ones. I haven't seen one up close for a number of yrs either, so maybe my memory has failed.  I'd buy It for that price if it wasn't half way across the county.

I beleve you are right about the wheels, the rims might be right.

As noted above, that's been listed and re-listed for months. He started at $800. I don't know - just not feeling it. A dump cart for $400? A Simplicity cart none-the-less. No disrespect, but Simplicity stuff never sells for big money. Never has. Don't get me wrong, I love my Landlord and have way more money into it than I will ever get back, but in general Simplicity and Allis stuff is an anchor. You own it if you enjoy it and/or use it, but you're never going to get rich off of a Simplicity collection.

I was thinking this one :poke:


Just kidding, nice looking cart. Unique.
Be great behind some of your stuff... Maybe he's negotiable in that price, being he's had it for a while?

Ha, ha, love it :thumbs:

 

Yea, i have been avoiding that for a while now :poke: , at first as jnlark stated it was up for very high price, has been dropped several times, there was another one in CT correct for the early 60's Landlord sold (i think) last month that was posted in Dec. that was going for about the same price $ 400 or so, let that one slide away.

 

Would be a very nice addition and would turn heads and give someone a ride around between places say at fairs would be neat but i beat on cart hard here and need to build another one using trailer components but that is for later.

 

If he is negotiable it might disappear from CL and pop up here owned by Trowel.

There was a Simplicity Flip Cart painted Homelite Blue that was in CT for sale for a couple of weeks for $50. That was last fall, I think.

 

Earlier it was said that Simplicities are lower priced. I agree that Simplicities are undervalued but they are very good tractors. They end up being less expensive while lots of parts tractors are around. We will see there prices creep up too.

 

 I don't see restoring any of these GTs as money makers. Even when I get them for free, parts and time really adds up. Good Luck, Rick

Yes it does, a good exsample is Planet Jr, while the tractors (depending on the years) always commanded a good price the hand tools were dirt cheap, now the seeder drills are in the hundreds (use to give them away) and push hoes getting up there.

I agree with boyscout862 it will creep up soon.

 

In areas were Simples are not so popular they also tend to command high prices.

 

I think i remember the Homelite cart, can't remember if i posted it here or not ?
