New Member today. I own 3 bobcats 2 5HP and 1 7hp Briggs. Both of the smaller ones have the large tires. I passed on a 5HP last week at a garage sale. Had the smaller tires. It seems a lot of these machines were sold in North Dakota where I live. Anyway...... Anyone familiar with a Simplicity machine 8 HP with a paddle wheel system similar to the BobCat?
