Legacy XL

Recommended Posts

Came across a legacy XL at a local dealer today, didn’t talk to anyone but a couple of questions came to mind. It has the 27hp lc Kawasaki and the decals not say it 4x4, however has the 4x4 shifter. I’m assuming it is indeed 4x4 since it has the shifter, ? Can anyone shed any light on this?  

Also it does not have have rear 3point or Pto. So then what’s it worth?  If anyone is interested I can facilitate.

Well, the 4x4 would be awful apparent by the front axle.  Im not sure if they use the 4x4 selector location for any other function on the 2wd units or not.  I thought the 4x4 TuffTorq K92 also had 540 rear pto standard.  Maybe theres a variety that didnt.

This is the unit. They do not have pics from the rear but I looked behind it and definitely no rear pto.

It is not a simplicity dealer so info is limited. Personally I think it’s a little high without the options. I’m half interested in the 60” deck as I have a 54” now and mow 1.5 acres. But everything I’ve read is the 54” cuts better. Just looking for anything to cut down on mowing time.

Show me one that mows better than a string trimmer! I haven't seen one yet. A job worth doing is worth doing right, a job not done right is not done. C|:

Every mowing job I've seen done with a zero turn looks like the blades needed sharpening six months ago and the belt is slipping. Not to mention the tires tearing up the turf like it's Tokyo Drift two, and oh the scalping. 

Maybe I have only seen mowing by people in a blown up hurry, but isn't that the point of those things? My boss mows with a Scag, I have literally scrapped machines that mowed better. 

Sorry if I offended, but we are here to celebrate the best mowing machines this side of a reel. dOd I am horribly biased, I'll admit it. :x

Don't judge all by what you've seen a few do, and occassionaly no matter how hard you try you leave donuts as they say.

Yes most do not sharpen blades very often, remember you asked.

      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
