Simplicity is more than a name. It's a way
of doing things. The engineers at Simplicity design products simply to do what
you want. And to keep doing it without trouble or worry, year after
year. Even in the features you see her -- features that set Simplicity
apart from the others -- they never use a complex group of parts when one simple
item will do as well. This philosophy is popular with Simplicity owners,
too. They know there are no finer powered products
Notice the smile.
You see it on Simplicity owners. It comes from all the
convenience features they enjoy . . . and the lack of worries. Documented
studies show that Simplicity owners keep and use their machines longer . . . get
more of the purchase price back when they do trade . . . and almost always buy
another Simplicity. Do you blame them for smiling?

No "summer romance."
It hardly makes sense to use a fine machine only a few
months a year. That's why Simplicity offers more than 30 attachments
. . . including fast, efficient snow-fighting tools. And these
attachments are made by Simplicity . . . designed for the machine just as
the internal components are. Simple idea, but it gives you a
hard-working, reliable partner 12 months a year.
The "integrated design" idea.
Every Simplicity part is designed specifically for its
job . . . designed to work with every other part. And all are
carefully manufactured . . . on advanced machines such as this
tape-controlled multi-spindle drill, shown boring a Simplicity
transmission. Where others may just put a group of parts together,
we design our products as complete units. That's one more reason
they last as long, work so well. Simple, isn't it?
A Simplicity patent! Mower is attached to the
front axle . . . as wheels sense change in terrain they adjust mower
position automatically, to follow ground contour. Rollers guide rear
of housing to assure non-scalp action. This
"Free-Floating" action gives your lawn a smooth, even cut.
Nothing complicated about that.
Maybe you've seen other tractors that claim to offer
easy mower attachment-changing. But they can't match Simplicity
Quick-Switch. Takes just seconds and no tools . . . and you're off
to another task. In actual tests, Quick-Switching has been timed in
11 seconds flat . . . against 20 minutes to an hour for most others.
Owners agree, Quick-Switching is simplicity itself.
