Nice set up. I would say you got the bases covered. Snow plow, tiller, and mower........can do a lot of work with that machine for sure!

Very nice! Those small frame tractors pack a lot of bang for the buck...often undervalued IMO.

:mad2:   Anyone have a motor for a 5008 simplicity :mad2:

 

Checked  and changed the oil when I got it , It looked good. Mowed the grass and shut it off came in side for a little bit now it's locked up tight. Pulled the head and the cylinder wall is scored and shavings all over the place .
