There are many products from Simplicity but by far one of the most versatile is the tractor. This tractor is used for various earth moving activities including moving of the snow from large expanses. There are various models of the tractor produced by the company and each one them is made with a particular purpose in mind. Depending on the expected use of the tractor you can now choose from the many models.
Models of Lawn tractors
The first and the most powerful model of the tractors is the Legacy XL. The main feature of this tractor is that it is compact in nature. It can be controlled very easily and also comes with many attachments and add-on accessories. You can choose from one of the three 27 horsepower engines.
The second model is the Prestige which is the garden tractor. In this type you have an option of 4 models and the horsepower varies from 20 to 23 hp. It looks like a very aggressive vehicle and it is very durable. The third model is the Conquest which is comparatively the least powered one. The one specialty of this model is the presence of the Quick Hitch(R) that makes it easy to take the tractor all the way from a lawn area onto the garden. It is also very easy to drive.
Advantages of Lawn Tractors
One of the many advantages of these tractors from Simplicity is the fact that they are very easy to maneuver. This is because of the ingrained automatic control traction(R). They also have differential locking systems that make driving the tractors very easy. The other features include electric PTO, light for the dash, facility called cruise control and complete instrumentation. Some of the added advantages are a seat that offers a high-back of up to 15 inches.
The grip of the steering is also very soft and at the same time very steady. For someone who is looking for a vehicle to be used on large field and one that promises durability then tractors from Simplicity are lucrative considerations. It is a common observation that when a vehicle is durable and designed to work hard it usually does not look great but these tractors have that feature too! Along with those mentioned, there are other features that are reasons for the popularity of these tractors. Simplicity delivers everything the name implies – elegance in ingrained functionality.
