I just picked up this 1920h, has around 928 hours on it, 60 inch deck. I don’t know a whole lot about the model, but I hear it’s a pretty heavy duty well built garden tractor? Are sleeve hitches hard to find for them? What should I expect to pay on one if I find one? If I can’t find one, would one be hard to make? I myself can’t weld, but I have friends that do. Anybody else have a 1920h they care to share and what all you use yours for? e28932ef400cb3e783c621f2cd3eed45.jpg

Oh yeah, I wouldn’t mind trying to find a rear pto for it. I hear those can be pricey.

I've had the 1918 and 1920 like yours. Mine were the Duetz-Allis versions but the same tractor. The 1920 had a loader on it was only used for that while I had it. Didn't like the hand hydro control with a loader so it went down the road. Your right though they are a heavy built tractor. Take the tunnel cover off and grease the rear universal joint. If the joint is worn replace it or the input shaft on the hydro is going to take some abuse. Many times that U-joint doesn't get greased and it needs to be. 

Good luck with your Simplicity  :thumbs:

Thanks for the tip, I plan on doing a fluid fest on it and going over everything soon. It also came with some manuals, so I have some reading to do also.

Nice machine & appears to have been maintained.  

I have the green version & it is a beast.  Really appreciate the power steering but as mentioned, the hand hydro control is cumbersome, IMHO.

Need weight on the back if using in hilly country, seems to break traction easily.  Mine had fluid in the tires when purchased, about same hours as yours, but the wheels had rusted through & I haven't weighted down the replacements yet.

I've only used it for mowing & not happy with the 60" deck so I plan to put a 48 on it.  Would like to get a front plow.

Have fun with it & don't be afraid to work it!

Yeah I kinda noticed that about the hand hydro. For one the spring is broken that holds it into neutral on mine. The temp fix is a small bungee cord around the column to the shifter. One of the things I need to fix. I also need to fix the fact that it sometimes just clicks when I go to start it. And I want to try and get the gas gauge working again. I guess the old owner says it will show full sometimes after you fill it up but after it drops a bit it just shows empty.

It sounds like the previous owner was honest with you about the tractors condition. That's a big plus.
