Good Morning All:


I had to take a few minutes and show off my new to me GT.  It was given to me in exchange for what I consider to be nothing more than being a good neighbour.  


My neighbour has an elderly father who is often alone and sometimes needs a hand. So the deal is that I check in on the father from time to time and lend a hand with some yard work when the old fellow needs it.  These are things I already do, so it certainly was a kind gesture on their part to give the Simplicity to me.

The GT needs some work.  It has some run-ability issues and a broken muffler.  I can't wait to get started.


Thanks for having a look.

That really nice looking yard is about to look even nicer after you cut it with that a couple of times. Nice score!

Very nice tractor. It's nice to hear of someone being rewarded for being a super good neighbour. It may need some work but overall it looks to be in pretty good condition.

Nice to be able to help an older person. Makes a fella feel good. Getting something like the tractor is a good thing. They must have knew you like garden tractors. Good for you. Noel

Nice! The usual problem with those is in the fuel system. We have some of the Manuals for downloading. Good Luck, Rick

Your going to love the way your lawn looks after you mow with that. I grafted a Simplicity deck onto my Bolens just to get that look.
