    Simplicity 717

    I was in a local tractor dealer today getting some B&S parts: Lawn Mower Parts

    They had this restored 717 on the floor and I thought it would be cool to share some pictures. Amazing how the mower deck discharge is just a big hole with no protection whatsoever on it! I have to go back in a few days so if anyone needs/wants a different picture lemme know.

    Wow is that thing ever good looking! I really like the old iron. I've always wanted to fix one up from beat to shreds, just never found the time.

    Nice looking Simplicity, which btw, to me, is the original "orange" tractor.
