Non-running....missing the hood.....stored out side......1964 model - not a broadmore but the other one.

Has several attachments......sickle mower, mower deck, and snowblower. All look to be in good shape.

What do you think it is worth? How easy to find the hood and any parts?

Briggs 23D motor.....electric start....has what I am guessing is a sleeve hitch on the back.....

Does the ac b-10 use the same parts??

I would like to consider restoring this one but I have several other GT I am already working on.

Any Simplicity guys out there got an opinion???

Thanks

I think the hood is a little different, I know the grill is a little. They are findable, worth picking up if the $ is reasonable.

Looks to have potential. Attachments don't look too bad. Sickle mower may give the most challenge to get working if it hasn't been used for a while.

The attachments do look pretty good. Why did they park it, does it roll over with compression?

I'd probably want to go for it, but then it all depends on space (which I am out of) and $ ( which I am also out of LOL)

What is he asking?

Asking $500 motor turns over and has compression........would get the tiller in the deal as well...no motor on the tiller.

I am figuring $100 on the tractor (parts) $150 on the sickle, $75 on the deck and $75 on the blower.......$400?? My biggest problem is I want to have a mower with a sickle mower......I don't have the space or the money at this point.....up to 4 running mowers and 3 nonrunning mowers right now.........(too many recent projects purchased and I need to sell something before I buy this. I notice the blowers are not selling on ebay.....deck could be worth more....but you never know what you are going to find when you take the top off. ........

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that the sickle mower is the gem in that bunch. Just my experience says that they're not too common on any of these older machines. I think it would be a nice addition to a collection, but money, space, and time are all valuable assets as well. Best of luck with whatever you decide!

Landlord and AC B-10 share similar sheet metal incl hood. Things to consider: hand lift sickle bar is the diamond and you're maybe under priced; mower deck looks solid w/no rust holes; good no-rust or coated gas tanks are $50+ to replace that one (unless good); upper grill $20+ and battery side cover $20+ is missing so add these costs to restore; and tractor is priced about right. I'd sure want to get it down some b/c its set this long but if it filled a hole in my collection I'd certainly be tempted to make an offer and wait for an answer.

Going to pick it up tomorrow. Going to be a project....but I am looking forward to the challenge. I had made an offer (thanks Daniel) that I thought was fair (and that I could come up with the money)....and the owner called me today and said he would take it. Will get better pictures and an better feel for what shape these attachments are in after I pick them up.

Nice find!! Looks to be a pretty good package at the price offered with the sickle mower. Even better that you got it for less. Keep the pics coming.

simplicity tillers were belt driven so no motor needed. there was also a planetary gear attacment which allowed the tractor to go very slow for tiller operation.
