Simplicity Manufacturing, Inc. (Port Washington, WI, U.S.) recently introduced its four-wheel drive Legacy XL subcompact garden tractor that is available in three 27-hp engine choices. The first is a V-twin, air-cooled Kohler Command(TM) featuring cast-iron cylinder liners, a mechanical fuel pump, hydraulic valve lifters, a 15-A charging system, and an external oil cooler. The second is a liquid-cooled Kawasaki V-twin with radiator, fan, and water pump that features cast-iron cylinder liners, a 20-A charging system, and an electric fuel pump. The third engine option is a three-cylinder, in-line diesel. Liquid-cooled with radiator, fan, and water pump, it also features a pre-chamber fuel injection system and 40-A charging system.

According to the company, the Legacy XL is newly redesigned with a 1/2-in thick front frame and heavy cast-iron front axles that reportedly allow the Legacy XL to tackle jobs other garden tractors cannot handle. Customers can select a 48-, 54- or 60-in mower deck, and any size mower may be matched with any engine choice. All mowers are shaft-driven and Free Floating' with full-width rollers.

The company says that the tractor can handle a wide variety of attachments, which means it can be used to perform a wide variety of chores. "We've designed a front-end loader especially for this tractor," says Harold Redman, vice president of Sales, Marketing, and Product Development for Simplicity. "Featuring a walk on/off design, it's easy to attach, easy to operate, and can be removed in a matter of seconds," he says.

Other front attachments include a dozer blade that can be attached and features hydraulic lifting and angling, as well as single- and two-stage snowthowers up to 47-in wide.
