Ok so I have the fever all of you seem to have. I bought a cub, then the heald hauler and now this simplicity garden tractor. Nice rig, runs fine. Came with a single row plow!
BUT....on the way home the trailer came off the ball. (Still no idea how) and the tractor came off the trailer. Minor damage, shifter handle, deck got bent, but nothing big.
I need the shifter diagram, parts and a new exhaust. Where is the best place to start? Is looking for a belly blade a waste of time? I'd like to have one but bet they are scarce?

Belly blades are available, but unfortunately some modifications to the machine may be necessary.....

That is an awesome ride! During the ordeal of the mower coming off the trailer the stack exhaust got banged up. Where would you get one of those? I'm thinking chrome.

We have a member here who makes and sells chrome stacks, I believe.

Where's the best place for a manual?

Wow!  I wouldn't even bother.  Those handles are a dime a dozen.  I might even have a freebie here.  

 

Quite the story!   If that stack took a hit, I'd be looking at the block for any signs of damage.  Stacks can crack a block easily...not the best idea unless there's a decent support added to them.

I watched This thing in the rear view tumble like a gymnast but besides this handle, the stack and a scuffed fender it's not bad. A testament to their toughness I guess

Glad she survived.
If I might suggest a name if you haven't.
Lucky.

You know, like the three legged, one eye, short tail Lab of lore.

Losing a trailer, the safety chain, AND the load... Seriously, that's a thrill I hope to never have.
Just hit your knees tonight and thank Him that no one got hurt.

The trailer jumped the ball, the chains held, but the trailer swaying violently back and forth tossed the tractor off the trailer like a bail of hay.

I found an owners manual on eBay. $27??? What a rip off.
