No. 990298) With this attachment your graded areas will be strictly on the level.   It maintains gravel drives, levels loose dirt.   Attaches with only three pins, without a single tool.   High carbon steel blade is half-inch thick, double beveled and reversible.   (Recommend two No. 990045 collar weights and No. 990300 rear weight.)

    No other tractor in its class is so gentle to drivers as the Broadmoor.  It's soft seat flotation tires make riding truly soft - no head-snapping forward lunges either with its soft-action clutch when you move out in either the two forward speeds or the one reverse. It's easy to boss the Broadmoor, too  -  its geared steering mechanism lets you circle small flower beds and shrubs in one pass, and get within a half-inch of trees and fences. Good-bye to tiresome jockeying and endless hand trimming!

    Here are some more features that let you sit pretty on a Broadmoor: A relaxing deluxe foam rubber bucket seat . . .   especially designed blower system that forces engine heat forward and away, never back at you . . . handsome panel that puts all controls within easy reach . . . gas gauge that tells you exactly how much fuel is in the tank.   Feature for feature, this Simplicity beauty is Suburb-Buy of the Year . . . the ideal combination of power, performance and versatility.
