Simplicity Sunrunner/ clutch?
Posted September 27, 2011 - 06:33 PM
The downside is the clutch, I have adjusted it by the manual, but it isn't close to "wheelies" when I let it out - in fact sometimes it will pretty much sit there - like in third gear. (I have managed to run it forward in all 5 gears so they do work.) But yet, it mows great in second gear, through thick grass, and doesn't seem to hesitate at all. Can the clutch be "sticky"? Can it be cleaned? I have the parts download, not sure even where the clutch parts are. Any clutch tips?

I like the mower out front for visibility.
The Stake body is neat and useful for hauling plants and tools around the yard. And there is always bits of trash that needs picked up.
If I had that I think there would be hangers for a pole with a spike in the end to stab the inevitable bits of paper that seems to alway wind up in the yard. A simple flip into the back and your on your way.

I like the idea of the litter pick up stick, put a bucket back there or the right sized plastic tub and go to it!
Here's a shot of it with the back in the dump position.

In all horsepower categories from smallest to largest, serviced and ready to go! I was toying with the idea of buying a MF Compact and he is a Massey dealer too.

I'm not much of a Simplicity man but someone gave me a Landlord 3210V model # 990569 Powerlift and i was wondering if you could tell me if it is worth the 220 mile drive to go get it, I'm not sure what the power lift means but if it's what it sounds like I'm assuming it has hydraulics? What would you say I'm told it hasn't run in 10 + years but it has been sitting in a barn unmolested the whole time

So, if it had a lift kit in it, would it be hydraulic or electric lift? IDK.
I will say this. My AC B112 and I have a love/hate relationship. I love how it tills and that it's built like a tank... I hate the fact you need 6 well trained appendages to run it, the tiller, the variable speed, steering, etc. Feel like Doc Octopus using it.
The price is right, and if your getting 15+ mpg with your truck & trailer, you'll have a little over $50 in gas. I'd say go get it.

You are starting down the slippery slope of a Simplicity/ Allis-Chalmers addiction.
I was in trouble with my wife all summer because of it.
You will find several Forums on line to satisfy your addiction, I did.
I would be on the road to get it already. Good luck.
