I've been intrigued by these 2 local tractors for sale. As I can't find a decent affordable mower deck for the Ford YT16H, I'm considering fixing up a dedicated mower tractor and leaving the Ford for snow.
First off, Simplicity 4112 Hydro for around $150/200. I like the look of it, but were they considered a low end brand? I figure with bearings, a battery, and filters/tuneup I'm in another $100.
And a 63 Wheel Horse 33R. This one is quite a bit older and looks great. What would you say about the quality of Wheel Horse tractors? This one's also more of an unknown as far as how much work and money it actually needs. I would consider it if I can land it for $200
