Does anyone know the weight of a Simplicity Sovereign 3314? It has to be the heaviest tractor I own (with a 48" deck). My Ford LGT165 weighs 853 lbs, but the Simplicity has to be more. I'm just curious, because we rolled mine onto a trailer, and it just about killed me! lol

A '67 3012 weighs 735# dry...hydrolift adds 24#. A 48" mower deck weighs in at 135# (1969 listing shows 167#).

The closest I can find to a 3314 is a 3212H, wich would share the vickers hydro rearend, if yours has it. The 3212H with hydrolift shipped dry at 760#. I'm guessing gear and motor oil, and a tank of gas doesn't add all that much, so you're probably looking at a 800#+ tractor, given the 3400 series has more sheetmetal with the longer frame, hood and runningboards. No idea what the difference in the weight on the Briggs is between a 12 and 14hp.

Thanks for the replies! I am not really familiar with the Simplicitys, and I'm not sure about the rear end either. It has a 3 speed (I think) and some type of speed adjuster on the right side. I don't think its a shuttle like my Baron has though. I just got it to fire for the first time in about ten years, and I haven't rode it yet. I did notice that it has the EXACT briggs engine as my Sears ss14, so I can search for e-bay parts easier since I need a booster fan and a air cleaner.
