That is a sweet looking tractor. But I bet for the price of that one, you could buy a 22hp. Kubota compact tractor thats bigger and more heavy duty. Its a shame that Simplicity went to the single wheel roller decks instead of the old style full deck width rollers. The older style sure does leave a beautiful cut. It would be nice to do that with the newer Simplicitys.

What do you mean? It has full rollers across the back of the new decks, and a roller on ea. side of the front too. Also in requards to the Kubota vers. Legacy you said it yourself, "sure does leave a beautiful cut" where Kubota doesn't even compare! On that same note the new Legacy XL 4X4 promos for $10,195 add $1499.00 for a 60" deck $1349.00 for a 54" or a 48" for $1249.00 subtract a $800.00 rebate. And thats with a 27hp., 540 rpm PTO, and cat "1" three point. Loader is only $2999.00 with Ballast Box. Now we are comparing Sub-Compact to a Compact, Not everone has room for a compact in thier garage. But if you compare to the gas powered 27hp the price of the the 4X4 is promoing for $8550.00 then subtract the $800.00 for the rebate and add the acc. for the prices above you will then see that they are blowing the price out the water on Kubota.

Here is what is printed on the site to help you a little better understand the Equipment.:D All Legacy XL models feature a 500 cold cranking amp battery, large five-inch muffler and a 5.5-gallon fuel tank with large filler neck. A Tuff Torq K92 transmission provides plenty of hydraulic capacity for powering the tractor and large attachments like a front-end loader. It features: Shaft-drive from the engine with cooling fan Automatic Controlled Traction™ Differential lock Internal “wet” disc brakes Internal hydraulic PTO for all mowers, front- and rear-attachments Four-wheel drive models have on-the-go shifting between 2- and 4-wheel drive. (The Legacy XL is also available with two-wheel drive in each engine option.) The Legacy XL is newly redesigned with a ½-inch-thick front frame and heavy cast-iron front axles that allow the Legacy XL to tackle jobs other garden tractors cannot handle. Customers can select a 48-, 54- or 60-inch mower deck. Any size mower can be matched with any engine choice. All mowers are shaft-driven and Free Floating™ with full-width rollers. The Legacy XL can handle a wide variety of attachments which means it can be used to perform a wide variety of chores. “We’ve designed a front-end loader especially for this tractor,” says Harold Redman, vice president of sales, marketing and product development for Simplicity. “Featuring a walk on/off design, it’s easy to attach, easy to operate and can be removed in a matter of seconds,” he says. Other front attachments offered include a dozer blade that can be easily attached and features hydraulic lifting and angling, as well as single- and two-stage snowthowers up to 47-inches wide. The Legacy XL is also able to handle the toughest rear attachments thanks to a limited category “1” three-point hitch with an available rear 540-rpm PTO (standard on most four-wheel drive units). It will operate a 50-inch tiller plus other rear implements. The transmission will operate the mid/front PTO or the rear PTO either together or separately with a simple touch of a lever. A four-way hydraulic joystick provides complete control of all attachments. Back and forth raises and lowers all attachments; side-to-side curls and empties the front-end loader bucket or angles the dozer blade; and locked forward allows attachments to float with no down pressure. Operator comfort features include: Easy-adjust high-back seat with tapered seat springs Color-coded controls within easy reach of the operator Soft-touch steering wheel with tilt adjustment Power steering and cruise control are standard Halogen headlights and taillights Easy-to-read instrument panel featuring white gauges and indicator lights, 12 volt power outlet, electric height of cut, cup holder, storage area Side-by-side forward/reverse drive pedals The suggested retail price for the Legacy XL line of two- and four-wheel drive subcompact garden tractors ranges from $8750 to $11,295, including rebates.
