Sold On Simplicity Posted by Donald Abernathy on 06/24/2013

Let me start by giving background on my knowledge of lawn tractors. My first riding tractor was Craftsman. I got good service from it.

Three years ago, my neighbor introduced me to the Simplicity brand. Up to that point, I had never heard of Simplicity. He has a couple of the legacy XL (gas & diesel) models and I quickly became a fan of the brand.

So three years ago, 2010, I purchased a new Broadmore 42" and the snowblower attachment.

Excellent entry level tractor. I wanted a few more "bells and whistles" so I traded the Broadmore for the 2013 Prestige. So far, I love the upgrade. Power steering, more HP, digital display, hydrostatic lift, led headlights, push button start, and the coil and adjustable shock ride are excellent.

Also, I cannot forget the great cut. These tractors are built with very heavy and sturdy materials and seem to be engineered quite well.

The reason I gave 4 stars for build quality is I have had to add some washers to a pulley guide wheel that I think was overlooked at the factory and add one or two cotter pins that was not installed. I hope the QC at the factory get on top of these little but important oversights.

Overall, I am glad my friend introduced me to Simplicity. As of this review, I am sold on Simplicity
