Re: simplicity prestige or Husqvarna TS354D

The Prestige is twice or more the tractor as the Husqvarna. That being said how many hours on the Simplicity and what's it's overall condition?

What do you intend to do with it? Just mow?

It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.

I actually just got a text back from a guy and I'm probably going option 3 haha I found a Ford N2 with a fresh rebuild that comes with a brush hog plow and disk for $2800 I just didn't know how to get it to my house but the guy said he could deliver 😀 I was actually leaning towards the simplicity after reading a lot of posts about the frame issues with the Husqvarna

Looks really nice. There are some on here beating the tar out of some of these new Husqvarna tractors and not having any trouble with the frame. Good Luck and Enjoy!

Yeah the frame concern is what had me looking at the simplicity but I crawled under it at the store and it looks like they added some bracing. I also got the frame from a slightly older one that has the c channel rails so maybe next winter I'll swap it . But I'm very impressed I chained it up to a full size disk I found half buried on my property and turned the locker on and it ripped it right out

Really!! What kind of disk and/or what size, like how wide is it? It's probably not a sleeve hitch is it? I'm trying to put together a good tractor disk combo. for the work I need it for. Thanks

It's probably 4 feet wide and it was a pull behind but I'm going to Fab something up to use with my sleeve hitch

I think they are easier to pull not put on a sleeve hitch for the most part. They float over and follow with the ground a little better generally from what I can tell, maybe not.
