    727 Features


    The Broadmoor handles a 36-inch rotary mower... letting you mow three feet of grass in one pass... without scalping a blade, thanks to the famous Simplicity patented mounting feature. It also handles with efficiency a 42-inch snow plow and dozer blade... a 3-gang mower ... and 32-inch rotary snow thrower ...Typical of Simplicity units, you switch all these attachments in minutes without tools.

    Spunky as the Broadmoor is in tough going, it's easy to boss. Its geared steering mechanism lets you circle small flower beds and shrubs, edging within a half inch of trees and fences. That means less jockeying to cut up close, and a lot less hand trimming.

    With comfort that never quits, it's little wonder that the Broadmoor has been Simplicity's best seller for years. It's the ideal combination of power, performance and versatility.
