The Sovereign is clearly the top of the line. And in theSimplicity line,that's saying a lot. Broad-shouldered, massive, the Sovereign masters anytask, in any season.  Choose from two rotary mowers thatcut 42" or48" at a pass --- or trailing rotary mowers that professionallytrim an 11' swath.  Mows a football field in less than 20 minutes.  Raiseor lowerattachments at a finger's touch, with optional Simplicity Powerlift.  Unique Controlled Traction limited-slip feature.  Notice how confidently and smoothly the big engine purrs . . . it's balanced, with contra-rotating counterweights to damp out vibrations.  See for yourself.  In the seat of the Sovereign, you'll discover how much sheer pleasure there can be in lawn and garden care -- the Simplicity way.

CHOOSE YOUR DRIVE. The Sovereign offers two precision engineered transmissions.  Hydrostatic Drive model permits instant single-lever control of ground speed and direction without changing speed of engine or attachment. Response is smooth, instant.  Or select advanced Variable Speed Drive.  Highly efficient, it allows variable ground speeds in forward or reverse.  All Simplicity tractors feature "Touch-O-Matic" clutching for foot controlled "inching" when both hands are needed for steering.  Principle proven in use on thousands of large farm combines.  Whichever you choose you get the practicality and dependability you expect from Simplicity.
