So any word on the rep? My local two places for Simplicity are darned slow. Ive been just requesting to SEE a 52"/23hp Citation or 61"/25hp Stallion in person before i actually buy one and theyve yet to get any in. It seems many people dont get high end Simplicityes andgo with toros exmarks etc... I would buy the 52" citation/23hp today for the 6k the dealer wants if the quoted 23hp big block briggs actually has the canister air filter. In Simplicities web site pic, its the old 23hp vangaurd motor. Yet if you look up the "big block" series on Brigg's website. they show ONLY 25hp and higher models are "big block" designation, the aluminum motor. AND they ALL show that they have round remote mounted canister air filters like other high end kawasakis etc. Ive been waiting two months now. Sooner or later im going to get possibly an Exmark, JD ztrak 757 60" or something. It would be great to get someone on here that can answer some questions... I have NEVER seen an picture even online of a Citation or Stallion thats NOT from Simplicities website. :(
I do like their products though, my parents always had a OLD like late late 70s 3416H Tractor and then 1989 16hp briggs/48" deck mower/tractor which we racked up a good 1300+ hours on it with a 4+ acre lawn.
I now have of my own a Simplicity 1280E 2005 snowblower and a 1380E 2006 snowblower which hasnt been used yet and a Pacer 1534 walk behind mower. I ran the 1280e last winter in NJ with 18" + of snow one day for almost 12 hours, it sure hauls a$$ with a lot of snow
