Long story short, I bought a 1990 Simplicity Sunstar 20 a couple years back for $400, however I have all but given up on finding implements for it. I'm thinking about either selling the machine or salvaging it for its Kohler Magnum 20 engine, locking rear end, and power steering assembly plus a brand new pair of carlisle AG Tires I never installed. I'm looking for a large(ish) frame GT
w/ 16-20 hp primarily to move snow in the winter but would like a plow/grader blade, rotary broom, and (in an ideal world) a cab and a 3pt hitch to run a box scraper and rake. As much as i want it all, I would ideally like to stay under $3k (whatever that gets me). I'm currently considering the following machines:
Case/Ingersoll - 3000 series, 400/4000 series
Cub - 782/982
Deere - 140, 300/318, 400/420
Wheel Horse - D/C series, 400/500 series
These makes seem to be much easier to track down implements within reasonable driving range from my home in Massachusetts. Would any of these machines be receptive to any of the sunstar components I mentioned above or can anyone recommend any other machines to consider? Or more simply are any other manufacturer implements compatible or more easily modifiable to fit my sunstar? Any advice is appreciated
