6 Forward Speeds--2 Reverse Speeds

Packing four horses of power on its compact, maneuverable frame . . . Simplicity's new MODEL FC offers users the greatest combination of engineering features ever designed for a tractor of its size and horsepower!

The MODEL FC's all-gear transmission, provides 6 forward speeds and 2 reverse - - thanks to its new Duomatic Two-Speed Axle.  Controls are at the tractor handles, where a flick of the finger brings instant response. No need to shift belts for any speed forward or reverse.

Add all the other famous Simplicity features -- like adjustable height handles for operator convenience ... broad tread tires for improved traction and stability ... famous Simplicity "Quick Hitch", for less-than-a-minute implement changes . . . handy kick-stand for storage -- and it's easy to see why the Simplicity MODEL FC is your buy in the big-power class.
