    40" GRADER BLADE (Mfg. No. 990298) - Smooth and easy, that's your style with this attachment. Maintains gravel drives, levels loose dirt. Attaches with only three pins ... no tools required. High carbon steel blade half an inch thick, double beveled, reversible. (Recommend two No. 045 collar weights and No. 300 rear weight.)


    BROADMOOR . . .    
    broad range of attachments . . . broad muscles to power them!

    Broadmoor's transmission operates in a bath of oil; two forward speeds and one reverse engage with remarkable smoothness and ease. The soft-action clutch makes starts truly soft -- no head-snapping forward lunges. No other tractor in its class is so gentle to drivers.

    You can circle small flower beds and shrubs in one pass, now to within a half-inch of trees and fences. Good-bye to tiresome jockeying and endless hand-trimming. The geared steering mechanism makes it so easy to boss the Broadmoor.

    Talk about "sitting pretty." Relax in the deluxe foam rubber bucket seat. Keep cool m a specially designed blower system exhausts engine heat forward, never back at you. The handsome dash panel puts all controls within easy reach. New gas gauge tells you exactly how much fuel is in the tank.

    No doubt about it, outdoor jobs are a "snap" when you own a Broadmoor. Feature for feature, or by any other measure, this Simplicity beauty represents "Suburbia's Buy of the Year"... offers the ideal combination of power, performance and versatility.  

    How do you change an acre of aches into a lot of leisure? Own a Broadmoor ... enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes with a "showplace" landscape framing your home. Stop driving yourself, drive a Simplicity Broadmoor.
