Vintage Simplicity... Now this is tempting !!!


Simplicity Sno-Away Snowblower, 70s era, single stage, includes push blade and chains.

Actually, it's a model W from 1967-1969.
The last of their long production of walk behind tractors.

Sure wish this was closer to me, I would have to have that. I owned one a few years back and I put a Sulky on it and would ride it around the neighborhood and turn a few heads. Only attachment I had was the push blade, would have loved to have the snowblower.

I bought one of these in the fall of 2014 as a project. The attraction, besides the tractor, was the chop saw. I haven't used it as I'm not sure of the integrity of the teeth.

The wheel weights remind me of Air-cooled VW flywheels.
