Nice collection. I like the push mower, not that I want to use it, but would be neat to have and use once or twice a year. I was wondering what the device on the right side axle is, on the simplicity. Its right beside the hub where the wheel bolts on. Doesn't seem to be the same thing on the left axle. I know nothing about simplicity's. I have seen this in other pictures of simplicity's and wondered what it is, if any thing.
Thanks for any information,
Noel

After looking at the pictures of the push mower close up, I said, jumpins, it's the exact same as my old lawnboy mower, but mine doesn't have the electric start !!!

I'm not sure on the simplicity. Haven't messed with it a whole lot yet.

Yes it was made by lawnboy. And it does run,drive,mow and the electric start does work. My son has about 15 or so IH cubs, but I didn't have anything IH so I had to buy it.

The thing on the rear axle of the 700 or 725 is the differential. That is a neat little tractor and alot of fun to run. I have two. We have plenty of manuals in our Manuals Section for it. Checkout www.simpletractors.com , they will show the history and the dozens of attachments that were made for it. The LF Bolens is my favorite GT. Good Luck, Rick

I could have bought 3 new ones several years ago for cheap but they were gone when I made up my mind to do so.I think they are the same.
