Conquest vs Late Model Sovereign

Recommended Posts

If you were buying new equipment, how would the Simplicity Conquest, a "yard tractor" rate against a '96 to '00 Sovereign? If the major tasks are mowing grass, raking leaves, and pushing or blowing snow, it seems the Conquest might be better. (a sacrilegious statement on this site?) Thoughts?

Simplicity Conquest is a Vertical shaft engine small frame lawn tractor. Simplicity Sovereign is a Horizontal shaft engine large frame garden tractor. Made to do heavier work. More attachments avaialabe. Easier to find the hitches for the attachments.

If you buy the hitch for the back of the conquest anything that fit the sovereign will work on a conquest. But the conquest doesn`t come with hydralic lift and the prestige does. Ray

I recently took a good hard look at both the conquest,legacy and the prestige. Quite frankly I wouldnt use them for anything but mowing. They just arent made as heavy as the Sovereign's. If I had to pay that much for a tractor, I'd throw in a few thousand more and get a compact diesel. The new Simplicity's are made to mow nice flat yards, not pull plows, or push snow, or tow carts full of rocks and wood, or pull stumps. All things that I do with my sovereign. The salesman even admitted that they arent made as heavy as they use to be. ddh

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
