Simplicity Model "W"
. . . a 2-wheel tractor that thrives on hard work
HERE'S a tractor just looking for a challenge. The "W" designated for this model was originally intended to identify it as a 2-wheel tractor, but satisfied owners prefer to think the "W" stands for work power! Get behind this Model W and you'll know why. It takes on any kind of big, tough job- mowing, plowing, cultivating, dozing dirt, sickling, clearing snow, tilling.
For any of these jobs, the Model W has an attachment that mounts in less than a minute, thanks to Simplicity's patented "quick-hitching". Eight husky horses are ready to go to work for you. The Model W shifts smoothly into three forward speeds (1 ¼ to 3 to 5 mph) and one reverse (2.7). It packs brute power that never balks, while you merely walk behind it. Its all steel gears are precision cut, carburized and hardened to take the bruising punishment of hard work . . . and its electrically welded all-steel body takes the jolts and pounding easily in stride. Chevron tread 6.00 x 12 tires grip like tiger paws, and feature extra-wide base for maximum flotation and pulling power.
This Model W is a brawny helper that knows no seasons-it's ready to help you with a big job all year 'round. It's an eager power-partner on suburban lots, truck farms, estates, service stations, nurseries . . . wherever big-tractor power and performance with garden tractor economy is needed.
