Milwaukee, Wis., (October 27, 2010)—Designed for homeowners who mow a lot of acreage, the Simplicity Citation zero-turn mower combines power, performance and comfort to get the job done quickly and easily.
Starting with either a 25- horsepower Kawasaki V-twin engine or a 28-gross horsepower* Briggs & Stratton Vanguard™ BIG BLOCK™, the Citation provides plenty of power. Rugged fabricated mower decks in either 52” (25-gross hp unit) or 61” (28-gross hp unit) cut a wide swath through the most challenging yards.
A patented rear suspension system and ride-dampening front shocks allow the operator to mow at speeds of up to 9 mph for increased productivity. Suspension allows each wheel to move up and down independently, smoothing out uneven turf. The deck of the mower works in conjunction with the suspension system to provide a consistent cut. This system virtually eliminates shock to the chassis, resulting in superior operator comfort, increased mowing speeds, stability and extended mower life.
Other key features include Hydro-Gear® fan-cooled pumps and wheel motors, an 11-gauge tubular frame and chassis, a 6.5 gallon fuel tank and 22” rear drive tires.
Control is at the operator’s fingertips including key, choke, throttle, mower engagement, headlights, hour meter and fuel gauge. An easy-to-adjust 12 position height-of-cut control can be moved in ¼” increments.
Typical retail pricing for the 2011 model year is $7,299 (Kawasaki engine) and $7,999 (Vanguard BIG BLOCK). Prices may vary by dealer. For more information or to locate the nearest Simplicity dealer, visit www.simplicitymfg.com.
