I'm a sucker for original paperwork...manuals I like to have for the tractors and implements I own, but sales literature I find pretty cool.  Worthless to most, but I find them neat, and from my experience bringing paperwork along to shows, many other folks do too.  I've had some great conversations over them.

A couple recent finds I wanted to share....I had not seen these before.  One attachment is my favorite, the other, I'm hoping will become a favorite as soon as I'm able to refurbish and give it a try.  =]

Simplicity - Sweepster C-48 & Transporter Sales sheet:

The Sweepster document I found in a very large box of Simplicity manuals a local Case collector gave me, when I sold him my Ingersoll 3016PS last year.  I had the box for months before ever digging through it...it was a pot of gold IMO.  Lots of neat early manuals/brochures and such.

The Mott mower sheets were given to me yesterday by another local Simplicity collector...he found them in some mystery honey hole he has been pulling tractors from over the past couple months.  He also gave me a B-206 manual, knowing I recently brought one of those tractors home as well.  Neat stuff!

Very cool. Are you going to put them in the Manuals Section? Do you have the sweeper? I have one of the Mott Mowers and would like to print the related material. Good Luck, Rick

Yeah, I can get the doc's into work and get a nice scan of them I think.  I have seen these elsewhere, but only for other brands, never Simplicity/Allis.  

 

I no longer have either of my C-48's, but if I had the room to keep one of those bulky monsters, I would have.  My favorite was an early model identical to the one in the literature above.  I've had 6 of them, but only 2 for Simp/AC.  I have some youtube video's of them in use.  I primarily use a big ol 60" power angle on the big tractor now (unless it's over 6" of snow, sweeping is now my preferred way to do winter cleanups), so the 48" units went to friends.  One is in WI, the other still here in MI.  I've seen a handful of them over the past couple years.   :smilewink:   The Mott mower is an entirely different story.  I'm only aware of 4 of those, and we own half!  :thumbs:

 

I should add, I have never seen or heard of a Transporter Body for Simp/AC.  I've seen a couple JD's, Bolens and a Horse, but never so much as a rumor of one that would fit in my fleet.  I'd love one...what a hoot it would be for shows and joyriding with the kiddos.

I think we have seen the double seat on GT's on here before.

It is interesting to see "vintage" advertizing and other related paperwork for our machines.
