Welcome. You have the year of your Simplicity nailed down.

Since the operation of the JD is very close to how the Ariens is set up, I infer the JD has issues also?

That's because that's the way they were designed to work.

 

The Deere is a Lawn Tractor and it's not made to do anything other than mowing and light hauling.

 

The Ariens is a Garden Tractor and is designed to do heavy work like plowing, tilling, etc.  There is also a 3-PT hitch option available for it.

Welcome from the Black Hills. Cool tractors. You can post your other collections in the "Other Hobbies and Toys" forum. I have a bunch of old HO scale slot cars in my collections. Roughly the same size as Hot Wheels and Matchbox.

If your Ariens is as good as mine you will have a lot of fun. Mine is my everyday work horse around the little farm.

 

I have a 3pt on the back and use all kinds of things with it.

 

Sure wish I could find myself another one
