well I bought this rusty turd a year or more ago. I bought it of the east coast and all I really wanted was the 2 attachments. I didn't want the tractor as it was going to cost more to ship. Well the guy selling it wouldn't take the attachments off, said he was selling the tractor and attachment together..... bla bla bla. so I shipped this rusty turd to South Dakota and pulled off the attachments and was going to part the rest and scrap the rest. well I pulled the attachments off and the rest just sat, till I got time to rip into her. as you can see from the pictures not much here.

the tractor was a really neat machine in its' day. Front PTO, mid mount Pto, power lift, headlights, hour meter, 6 speed. In her day she must of been I real nice tractor.

well this week after getting those 916's I start to get a plan to get some of these running and working and clearing out the junk.  so just out of the state of wonder if, I tossed a battery into that rusty thing and hit the key to see if she spun, nothing on the key so I jump the starter and the thing spun free.  I hooked a gas can up and spun it, nothing gave it a shot of must go now juice and she fired, but not run on its own.  I noticed the carb was missing a few things, so I bought one on flee bay for $50, a new repop.carb.  bolted on, hooked up the gas gave it shot of starting fluid, hit the jump wire and she fired off and ran for almost 5 min before she ran out of gas.  I tried to load the video up, but says I am not permitted to load videos.  so I got a bonus I guess for taking the entire tractor.  I think she is too gone to fix, but she has a lot of good parts.

Think of it as patina---that tractor may have a lot of life left in it.I have seen some that looked a lot worse and still in use

well I need to find someone with a 7010 6 speed or something of equal tractor.  I think it is missing a few key parts, but not sure due to not having another 6 speed tractor.  The clutch peddle is seized up and I think the shuttle (forward and reverse lever) is gone. and the high low will not move. so that's why I am thinking of using it for parts.  maybe looking at another one will change my mind.

What kind of mower is that on the front? :smilewink: I was gonna ask too, and now someone asked two! Hee!  Never seen or heard of such an item. The blades seem to be able to stick out past the guard??  Must be some sort of woods trail hacking rig?  Seems odd can have that and sicle on at same time. 

 

On the tractor, think I would have to fix that one up. Lots of neat features. Penetrant and waiting can make lots of rusty items work again and a paint job after blasting things should be good for most of rest. Complete tear-down and blast and paint, will be nice rig.

Those old Simplicity rigs are tough machines, and the cast iron Briggs they used was (in my opinion) the last real bulletproof Briggs single cylinder that came along.

That is a Simplicity brush/weed cutter on the front. Kind of like a bush hog.
