A week ago I aquired a '95 Simplicity Broadmoor lawn tractor, hydrostatic, 14hp V twin with pressure filter lubrication, 38" floating deck and mulch kit. I hadn't used it much until today, but that is one fine little machine! Only thing I do not like is the hand hydro control (mounted on steering column). Turns very tight, steers easy, easy to make straight stripes, cuts and stripes as good as the 52" eXmark TTHP with roller and ProSlide. What a nice little machine. I'd never mowed with a Simplicity before really but have used countless other tractors of all brands and sizes, this is the best for mowing. I traded mowing services for it with intent to sell, but I may keep it to pull a trailer and put a snowplow on and maybe a bagger for leaves (to pickup the dust after mulching with eXmark). One odd thing about it is the deck has one small blade on left and one larger one on the right. I mean like 8" longer on the right than the left! Kind of odd but hey it works very well. The lack of true zero turning is inconvenient but it turns very tight anyway. If I get rid of it, I will miss it. If you need a lawn tractor versatility with commercial construction and performance, I strongly suggest you look at a Simplicity.
