"I have been waiting to take these pictures of my Simplicity 717 for a while.  I picked this tractor up with the snow blower, mower deck, and wagon for $200 last fall. One of my co-workers said his dad had an old tractor in the back yard that he would sale for $200 but he didn't know if it ran. When I got it all home (after loading it in my new mini van) I changed the gas and it started right off. Since then I have cleaned out the gas tank, rebuilt the carb, put new tires on the front, installed a new electronic ignition, installed a new muffler, and blown a lot of snow. I would like to thank all of the people out here that have given me advise in getting this tractor back to running condition. I have a long way to go to restoring yet."

After a long season with a Snapper 30" lawn mower. My Simplicity is finally all rebuilt and just in time for the snow.  I thought I would send you some updated pictures of my new 717 for the gallery.
