I got this tractor non running from a tractor buddy in KY last fall/early winter and have been working it over getting it into running/driving condition. I really like the recoil start cast iron model 19 engine on this tractor ( I must like model 19's,I have three diffrent tractors with them on it). Since getting it running I had only putted around on it and wanted to try working it so I put a disc on it ( with a boat anchor for a weight) and headed for the garden. The tractor ran strong and pulled well. Traction was better than I had expected too.

The 19's are one of my favorite engines. I put the rebuilt 19D back on the B1 today and I can't wait to plow the garden with it. The 19 on the Squire had no problems hauling wood out this past winter, too.

I agree classic. I have had this 700 since 93,its on it's second long block since I have had it. The only thing that will stop it is a lack of traction and Simplicity tractors bite really well ! BTW the B1 that I drug home turns out to run and drive very nice too....Just gotta do some cosmetics...sometime. Not sure when I will get to it.

you should just get rid of all those nonsuburban units and put that money into increasing the DB herd.

Thought about getting the parts 725 that Jason has and using it and my parts 725 to build a complete 725. Neither one has the grill though. Jeff with you encouragment and help with the tractors you could cause me to end up with a shop full of db. I have the db saw and if I add another 725 I would have to add a walker....
