  • Broadmoor Attachments


    Versatile attachments make Broadmoor 717 more than a mower

    IF YOU think a Broadmoor is just for "mowing grass", you need to get better acquainted with this jillion-job tractor. Lawn mowing is one of the things it does as carefully as a barber.   Other lawn tractor companies talk about "no scalping", but Simplicity mowers are the ones that really prevent scalping, because of the patented mounting on every tractor we build.  

    The Broadmoor wades through a heap of other chores with the same kind of care and owner convenience.   Its full line of attachments lets you replace muscles with mechanization, taking the grind out of yard chores while you ride in comfort.  

    The Broadmoor's great for collecting leaves and grass, grading, hauling, mulching, snow removal and weed clearance . . . and you can switch from one chore to another in minutes with Broadmoor's quick-switch attachments. It's an all-year worker that's always ready to help and never asks a cent for overtime. If you're really serious about wanting more time for fun and family, put a Broadmoor in your garage . . . and more leisure in your living.
