Welcome to Simple trACtors, the largest garden tractor site on the Internet. This award-winning siteis
dedicated to preserving and maintaining old Simplicity and Allis-Chalmers
garden tractors -- and to you, their loyal owners. Started on
December 15, 1998, this is also one of the oldest and most successful
tractor sites. The site is largely member supported and without your
help and enthusiasm, it simply wouldn't exist!
So, strap on your
Carhartt bib overalls, get your
tractors ready for the season, and enjoy all the information available on
NOTE: We don't sell these old tractors, implements or parts. Instead, we're an information source that focuses on primarily 1985 and older models. You'll find over 1,500 pages of reference information here, including old sales brochures for tractors and implements, product specifications, old price lists, cross-reference information, and much more. We've identified many sources for parts and information, including several sources for hard-to-find restoration parts such as seats or decals.
We also provide hosting, site maintenance and support for the independent Simplicity and Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractor Club that we began
over seven years ago. Now an independent, formal non-profit organization, with members world-wide, the club is visited by hundreds of people each day. Click the logo at the left to visit the Clubhouse (or the small icon on the top of every page). Explore the discussion forums and other features available to club members. Better yet, join us and "ask the experts!"
