Simplicity 755

Hi, I am thinking of picking up a used 755 for $250. Never heard of this brand but, after reading some reviews I am interested. Just want your
opinions.

The blowers built in the 70's and 80's had a very good reputation. The tractors of the 60's were also excellent. The gearbox on this one looks very robust. If the engine is good I think it's a keeper and should last a very long time. I don't know anything about the later models.

Some Simplicity's are the best made but all are well built as this one is however $250 is too much, it's too old. $150 is better, tops, unless it has new everything.

I've been on the lookout around here for an 800 series needing some repair. I like the heavy duty look of the handle bars. This is and 860 on Craigs around here with no engine.

Here's a much better deal for you if you are willing to spend $700, or whatever you can get it for. Very Easy fixes.

It is a 1995 model. I'll try to get it for $200 if it runs good. Any quick points to check when I go to see it tomorrow? Thanks again for the help.
