    I am looking at a new simplicity broadmoor with 18HP Kohler and 44" mowing deck, and a JD lt180. the properties that i will be doing are just some small (3/4 acre to 1 acre) plots, with one or two really steep hills that my 14 HP simplicity regent could just handle. i need a tractor for it's versatility, and i don't think a ZTR would do much for me. i have done the homework and these machines are the best that i can afford. anybody with personal use of the machines or anybody at all with information, WHICH ONE?

    Simplicity hands down. They are the best lawn tractor out on the market imo!

    Ive got a 18 HP Regent 38" cut, so even though i bleed green and yellow id recomend simplicity hands down, the cut quality can not be compared.
