I have a homemade fork lift that fits on my AC/Simplicity. I've never had it on any of my tractors because it is missing the adapter to slide in the top of the tractors hitch. I was looking around for a piece of 1" diameter by 10" long steel rod to make it when I found 3 old weight lifting bars that I picked up at the dump 10 years ago. The plastic weights had all disintegrated. It turned out that one of the solid bars is about the right diameter. It is about 60" long so, I can make 6 rods. That will help with many other attachments that I have. Just wanted to give others a tip on where to find the material for the hitch.  Good Luck, Rick

You are really on top of these things Kenny! It was in with all of the Simplicity stuff I bought 2 years ago. I'm guessing how it works. It probably only lifts 4".  The plans are probably on www.simpletractors.com since he was very active with them for a long time. I will post pics when I've got something to show. Good Luck, Rick

You don't need to be a member to look through the site. They have the best garden tractor site that I have seen. When you have an hour or two visit www.simpletractors.com and look through the old brouchures and attachments. I have to work on my car and the tractor attachments. I will try to post some pics. Good Luck, Rick

This is the friendliest forum and has a lot of information for most types of GTs. The other is dedicated to the Simplicity family pre 1985. It was able to concentrate alot of information in a nice format. This site is interactive where the other really isn't. I will stick with my original statement but clarify it by saying we have the best forum. Visit the other site if you want to learn about those tractors, I have about 10 of them and probably 25 attachments. GTT is the only site that I send money to.

 

I apologize for not posting any picks yet. I have not fixed my car so the GTs had to sit. I have not even been able to diagnose the clunck in the front end. To make it up, I will get out the homemade johnnie bucket and grader blades too.

I haven't even bolted it together yet. I got it in with 10 trailer loads of Simplicity stuff I bought two years ago. The guy was very talented at repairing the Simpicities and fabricating attachments. The forks, bucket, and grader were all made by him. HE was moving and sold me all that he had left(including the tent garage). I have not gotten to dig into much of the stuff yet. Good Luck, Rick

There are 70+ Lawn and parts tractors hiding in the woods. As well as my collection of 1950s Chevy trucks. Hopefully, I will get rid of 50 lawn tractors this year. You could go home with some. Good Luck, Rick
