Got to mow with my new ConQuest today. All I can say is ... WoW!!!! The turning radius on this is alot better than the 98 Soveriegn I a had. Between that and the ease of changing directions with the foot pedal controls I easily shaved 30% off my mowing time. Worked Great in the ditch. Only complaint is its hard to straddle the cruise lever when leaning over on that side of the tractor while on the slope. Already figured out how to fit my mounted sprayer on the rear lift. Got a good Idea of how to mount a Soveriegn grader blade and a sickle mower on the thing too with a little engineering to the atachments and no mods to the tractor. I think I picked the right replacements for my fleet:D

I am considering buying either the Conquest or Prestige next year. Glad to hear you are happy with it. Always good to hear feedback from owners instead of just dealer recommendations. I meant no disrespect to the dealers on that. I just like to also hear from owner experience too. Did you trade in the Sovereign, Sam?

Sam the folks we have sold the Prestiege to have nothing but praise for them. As for problems, all I've seen them in the shop for so far is routine maintenance/service. Enjoy!!

Interesting idea forming on that one... What if one cut the rod off and made a sleeve to attach to the handle end? Maybe using square stock of some sort. You could make it so the hand grip end could be pulled up and off when you needed to and simply slid back on. Have the joint just below the fender.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
