Combining unrivalled build-quality with outstanding cutting-capability and a raft of premium features, this high-end lawn tractor from acclaimed U.S. manufacturers Simplicity is a genuinely exceptional machine.
The Simplicity Broadmoor has been equipped with Simplicity’s exclusive Automatic Controlled Traction System; a technologically advanced feature that ensures the proper amount of power is delivered to each wheel independently, thereby maximising traction on slopes and damp ground and minimising the risk of turf-damage caused by spinning wheels. Large-diameter wide-profile tyres further aid traction.
The extra-wide 127cm Free Floating™ mower-deck on the Simplicity SLT300 is fixed to a pivoting front axle, enabling the blades to follow even the subtlest undulation in the surface, which in turn leads to a comprehensive cut with no missed patches or unsightly scalping.
An infinitely adjustable cutting-height allows for a precision finish; while a full-width multi-piece wooden roller mounted at the rear of the deck will leave you with that sought-after ‘Wimbledon’-style lawn-stripe.
Featuring smooth, foot-pedal controlled acceleration (both forward and reverse) and an ultra-tight 45cm turning-radius, the Simplicity SLT300 Garden Tractor offers a level of manoeuvrability that belies its size.
It’s superbly well constructed, with its heavy-duty drive-train; all-steel bonnet; heavy-gauge welded-steel frame; cast-iron front axle; and 724cc Briggs & Stratton 8260 Professional Series V-Twin overhead-valve engine all working to ensure you’ll get years of unfailing service from your purchase.
Thanks to Simplicity’s Quick Hitch™ system, the deck on this model can be removed quickly; no tools required. This makes it simple to prepare the tractor for the challenging towing applications that it has been designed to undertake.
Other stand-out features include an adjustable mesh seat for a more comfortable drive; and a sloping hood for a clearer view of the cutting-line.

When you consider what's important, the answer is simple. Buying a tractor can be an overwhelming experience. There are many manufacturers, many features and many decisions. But focus on what's important - quality of cut, traction, reliability, ease of use - and many of these questions will begin to answer themselves. And one manufacturer will stand out.
1. A great cut should be your focus and your end result.
Nothing is more important than the ability of your tractor to meticulously mow your lawn. And the way its engineered will determine whether your lawn will show off a velvety smooth manicure or a cut scarred by scalping. There is a definite science to designing a mower deck. And a definite reason why no one's mower deck outperforms a Simplicity.
Simplicity mowers have exceptionally deep designs to increase air flow. And they're the only ones with a Free Floating™ mower deck that rides independently of the tractor frame, following even the subtlest contours.
And the result? No uncut strips. No scalping. And tangible proof of why the 'Simplicity cut' has become synonymous with a smooth well-manicured lawn.
2 Superior traction is a pretty slick benefit you shouldn't be without
Life is full of ups and downs. So are lawns. They come at you in the form of hills, drainage ditches, berms and moulds. Add rain and dew to the mix and you can be left spinning your wheels. Fortunately, Simplicity's engineers have developed an exclusive tractor-enhancing system called Automatic Controlled Traction™. By continuously distributing power in the proper amounts to both rear wheels, even if one wheel begins to slip, you keep moving ahead without damaging your lawn. The smaller models feature equally advanced methods that automatically improve traction, like torsion bar suspension and a uniquely designed pivoting transmission carrier.
3 Reliability produces tractors that handle years as well as lawns.
At a time when everybody seems to be compromising quality in exchange for lower costs, Simplicity have refused to follow suit. Compare their products with any other name in the industry - large, small, new, old - and you won't find a better-built line of machines. What you will find are heavy gauge welded steel frames, solidly engineered front axles, heavy-duty steering spindles, heavy-duty drivetrains and rugged steel gears. And when others began a trend to replace steel hoods with easier-to-produce plastic ones, Simplicity's engineers refused to buckle. In the end the beauty of these tractors is more than skin deep. Their real beauty can be found in the years of steady, reliable performance each one is built to deliver.
4 Easy-to-use equipment makes yard work more fun.
Who says yard work has to be work? Simplicity think it should be fun! That's why you'll find all their products remarkably easy to use. The mower decks, for example, can be removed in seconds without tools thanks to the clever Quick Hitch™ system - a Simplicity exclusive! All tractors offered by MowDIRECT feature models with easy-to-use hydrostatic transmissions and extremely tight turning to minimize trimming. Cutting heights can be easily adjusted at the touch of a lever or the push of a button. And there are many other extras that make mowing easier. Sloping hoods for better visibility, easy-to-adjust seats for driver comfort and control, and tractors that are easy to get on and off - a feature everyone in the family will appreciate!
