For sale in my area. No price and I have no money. What do you think of these mowers.

I have the Simplicity badged one like that. I was not aware they were sold under the Massey name.

They do a nice job mowing, and they're pretty nimble. Can't hold a slope, however.

I really like that rig.  Looks like it's been taken care of.  Glad it's not around here, would be very tempting!

How so on the slope? Tire issues or crabbing or ?

Looks very nice. I also have never seen the Sunrunner's in Massey badging.

The rear end will slide, it virtually has no weight on it.

I haven't ever seen a Simplicity Sunrunner/FCH16 rebadged as a MF either.  Although It may be during the time the Simplicity Sunstar tractor was rebadged as a Massey Ferguson 2920H as well.

I drove a Simplicity Sunrunner because I thought they were cool.  After driving it, no thanks!  I passed on it.  Very tippy and lack of traction and steering stability on a hill.  The back end would swing around so fast and if you weren't always super careful, it seems like it would wack whatever it comes close to.  I ended up finding a super cheap John Deere F510 instead a few years later.
