Hi all, new to this forum . Love the amount and variety of ideas and info here. I just piced up another db 2 wheeler last night ,a 5751 super for another garden machine. Its in vg cond but the owner had several other machines some planet jrs and simplicitys. These were all part of his dads collection of toys, some in better shape than others. There is a simplicity culti-cutter that's in great shape that he wants to sell , but I have no idea a fair price to give him. Any help would be great.

Welcome to the forum. The culti-cutter is the single wheeler, right? What engine does it have? the model U Briggs will bring more than the Lauson version simply for engine value alone. Price is whatever you feel comfortable with.

Thanks guys, will have to get some pics from the owner asap. Hes about an hour away. I am 90% sure it has the briggs on it. No rust other than the imp, with original paint and decals. Not something that I would want to work ,but I don't get out to the shows so its something that would just end up in storage. Can't find much on them, are there still a lot around ?

Yes it is the single wheeler.

The Culti-Cutter was the first Simplicity model, followed shortly thereafter by the Model A (same machine).  The Culti-Cutter should be a '40-'41 ish machine, and the Model A was built into '43.  Prior to that, they were branded as the Wards Culti-Mower, beginning in '37.

 

The Wards used a Lauson RLC...the Simplicity, the Model U, and I have also heard of them using the RLC and Briggs WI.  The U is the collector's choice on the Simplicity branded machines, and these tractors become engine value plus about $100-300, depending on condition and attachments.

Thanks mrg, I was thinking it should go in the 2-300 range as to the shape and as you said the older engines are getting to be collector items themselves.
