Simplicity Yeoman 627
Works as well as it looks.
If you have a spacious lawn but are cramped on storage space, here's a tractor that offers you compact convenience with power aplenty. This 7 hp Yeoman takes less space in your garage than a riding mower... yet is an outdoor helper that's long on comfort, with extra power for the heavier tractor jobs.
Introduced last year, this eager unit has left no doubt why it's called the Yeoman. It's powerful enough to handle many good-sized jobs... it moves right out with the 32" Rotary Mower, a 40" Grader Blade, a 32" Rotary Snow Thrower, a 42" Snow Plow and Dozer Blade, and many other back-saving, leisure-gaining attachments.
And this year's Yeoman has a 3-speed transmission to give you a wider choice of speeds to fit the job. It hustles its way through good sized mowing jobs in a matter of minutes, cutting up to 1.2 acres per hour. The rear tires are 6~,~ inches wide, providing sure-footed traction without leaving tread marks, and treating the rider as gentle as the lawn.
When you're done with the lawn, the Yeoman is ready to handle a host of other jobs with your choice of its Quick-Switch attachments. The Yeoman climbs up and down 40% slopes. And its Controlled Traction keeps it moving-when one wheel is on a slippery surface, the other wheel continues to drive and provide traction.
You can make a Yeoman as fancy as you want, with a choice of accessories--such as chrome hubcaps--that add to its attractive design and give pride in ownership.
The Yeoman's foot-operated clutch-brake combination gives positive control of the unit. Nothing was overlooked by Simplicity engineers to bring you one of the finest performers ever to tackle outdoor jobs. One thing about a Yeoman-it's always willing to work.
