Ya I know. I am a big Ingersoll guy, but I can't deny how good the Simplicity's are. I may be needing to pick up a mower for my Mom's house next year. The old JD112 is a GREAT tractor. But she is getting pretty old, and maybe time to settle down, and be taking out of the everyweek mowing. I have looked at the MF tractors, that are rebabged Simp's, and they are a real nice tractor. Now this will only be used for mowing, and maybe pulling a small cart. She has an acre and a 1/4, and a TON of trees, Any idea what model would be best for us? Also anyone know how the MF # swap over to the Simp #'s? And last, it seems like most are not hydro lift. How hard is the manual lift on these tractors?
