Hey guys ,

I have never seen these kind of tractors. :) I came across this ad on kijij please see the link below. The package comes with 9 attachments, when you read the ad you can only count 8 that's because he forgot to include a sickle bar.

All I want to know if the price is fair and if any had any bad or good experience with those 2 wheel simplicity tractors .

Welcome to GTT. They are good machines. If they really are in very good shape, then the price isn't too high. It depends on what you want them for. I have one of those with a bunch of attachments but, I only use it for playing. For working in my yard, I use a 4 wheeled tractor. You can learn more by going to our Manuals section and downloading the manuals(limit 3 per day). Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to the fourm, the VC is a good model, they look to be in good shape and worth a look, the attachments look good to.

The VC Special has a axle differential, limited slip which i favor over the ratchet hubs, with the three speed tranny they make good heavy duty  garden tractors.

IMO the price is right if it runs good and everything works like it should, make sure both tractors can rev up to operating speed, those Briggs 19D engine are notorious for bad ignition coils.
