Landloard vs. Broadmoor

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to replace a '67 vintage JD 110 and ran into an unusual oportunity at a local simplicity dealer. Here's the scoop: They are not going to retail lawn tractors anymore (they are also a rental shop) and are "getting rid of" thier remaining stock. The choices are pretty limited, some gear drive regents, 1 1995 broadmoor, and a 1998 landlord. I'm curious as to what you would consider reasonable prices and what the differences are between the broadmoor and landlord. Here's what I know - 95 broadmoor, 15 HP BS Vangaurd (is it full pressure lube?), 44' deck, pretty distressed from being in the sun, 2k and it's yours was the first offer. 98 landlord, 17 HP Kawasaki LC, 4 hrs, 50" deck. 3.9k and it's mine was thier first offer. I'm mostly going to be mowing 3/4 acre of hilly vermont yard (not to steep but it ain't flat). We also do a lot of yard work (small trees, lots of top soil to move, etc) I prefer a walk behind snow blower so it won't see any use in the winter. Does the landlord have a beefier transmission? Is the liquid cooled better/worse/more maintenance. 2k for a 6 year old broadmoor that's been parked outside seems high to me, Landlord looks to be in better shape. Thanks for you opinions.

Simplicity rates the Broadmoor as a LT and the Landlord as a GT. From the work you describe, either would do the job. A 50" deck may be a little large for 3/4 acre, maybe not. I would think a liquid cooled engine would require more maintenance somewhere down the line. As for specs for the relative years, your best bet is to call Simplicity (see link below). A reasonable price is what you and the dealer agree upon. Personally, I'd be leary of any machine that sat unused for a number of years, especially sitting outside.[A href='http://www.simplicitymfg.com/']http://www.simplicitymfg.com/[/a]

      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
