Very nice. Go to www.simpletractors.com and look at the attachments that were available for the Big Ten. That should be your wish list. Alot of the attachments are fun and interesting to use. I've got over a dozen of them for mine. Still need to fix several them. Good Luck and enjoy, Rick

It's got automotive style battery cables is it supposed to have those? Also I'd love attachments but I've literally run out of space maybe someday

   The battery ends can be changed around as needed, I prefer to run car battery's in all me older gt's with starter generators in them.  gives you a little more kick when trying to start

The bigger cables certainly wont hurt, if anything they are better.

 

I can relate with the space issue, but on the other side of the coin the longer you wait, the harder it will be to find attachments...

 

Again, super looking 10! :)

The Allis/Simplicity tractors of that era are one of my favorites. They are simple to work on, durable, and capable. The crew here got me into them, and after using them, I can see why they are so popular. Having a couple of parts machines around is a good Idea if you plan on using it a lot. I plan on using mine for years, so having extra parts kicking around never hurts, and parts machines do show up from time to time. Attachments are out there, but they don't seem to be as abundant as they were a couple of years ago. That Big Ten looks to be in better than average shape, congrats! I'll be mowing with mine when the rain let's up. I mowed twice this year without any problems at all. Good luck!
