View Full Version : Just pulled the trigger on a Simplicity Cobalt!

30 HP Briggs, 61'' deck. Should be here soon!

I looked at a ton of models and settled on this for a few reasons:

- I wanted a diesel model, but priced a Ferris 5100 z $ 19,500!!!! :dizzy:

- JD 997 was $15,000.

- There is a Simplicity dealer 3 miles from where I live and I already have a walk behind that I am very happy with.

- Suspension!

- Cut quality. All Simplicity models seem to have excellent cut quality. Lets hope things remain the same.

- I am only worried about fuel usage, but hey... compromise must occur.

Ill post some pics when the machine arrives. Price was less than 9k. Thats 10 grand less than the Ferris w/ CAT diesel. Only a few weeks until mowing begins!
