A lot of money, but it has lots of goodies, About three hours north of me, I'll be leaving Tuesday morning, to pick it up. The factory hubcaps, snow blade, rear weight, and wheel weights, were the clincher. the butthole stiffed me on the Simplicity 6216, but I vowed if it went under a grand it was mine. I had a max bid of 1005.99, some guy pushed it right to the top, met the reserve in the last 3 minutes. Seems a little fishy, but what the hell

Yep, saw that one on there a while back, Looks like an extremly clean machine. That is one of em thats on my wish list. I like the looks of the early 716s alot better than the newer style ones.

Nice tractor, I especially like the dual headlights on the sides of the nose.

That looks to be a well cared for machine! It should make you a good tractor. The dozer blade is the heavy duty spring trip one, very well built. I think you will be happy with it, congrats on your find!

I didn't get back till after midnight from picking this up as I met some friends up there for dinner, I'll get more pics of the plow, wheel weights, hubcaps and front weights later. I really like the rear work light. I got the original sales receipt and all the original manuals also, 725 hours on it

I'll get more pics if the chrome hubcaps, front weight, and rear wheel weights later. Oh look, a brand new Howse 48 inch box blade with four scarifers. 225.00 plus 100.00 for shipping, I love it. I'll post pics on the back of the tractor

Thanks, i really need to know how that rear lift works, if it's complete, and what implements fit it. She's screaming for new tires, just don't know what kind. I wish there was something between the the AGS and turfs tires, remember the old biased ply snow tire, that's what I'd like. Cub uset to have a tire like that, I wonder if they still sell them

Your gonna have to buy a rear lift kit and cable or fab one up like I did on my 920. to run pto driven implements off the back you will need the Idler assembly that bolts to the back of the tractor too. You can run Allis and Simplicity implements only unless you fab up a sleeve hitch then you can use most any Brinley sleeve mounted implements.

Heres some pics of mine, hope they give you an idea how it works.
