Hello All,
I picked up this Simplicity Legacy XL 4x4 today. A very clean low hour (414) machine. Has the Diesel engine and Cat1 rear hitch and 540 PTO. I will get all new filters and oil and change them out before our plow day. All I need now is a snow blade for it. Well here's the pics.

Take care,
Mike

Looks like a nice tractor and it should pull a plow without any trouble. I wish I could see it in action but I won't be able to make it to the plow day this year.

Very nice!  I would love to try that diesel.  I recently found the same machine, but with the LC Kawa and loader.  I have been VERY impressed with the 4x4.  Last weekend I had a conversation with a fella out in Eastern PA who had a dozer and subframe for an XL, but he was not interested in taking my money and waiting for me to have it picked up  =[  Maybe it's still out there?  Looked mint, and was $600, which is a great price.

 

The one disappointment I have with the machine, is the darn 3pt design.  They did nothing to address the wear-susceptible and non-rebuild-able rocker.

Very nice. Not a lot of Super GT diesels left out there. That one looks in mint condition. Congratulations, that should be all the GT you'll ever need.

I am too Josh, a very very nice machine. I had thought about a JD 4x4 mainly because you don't see many of the Legacy 4x4's and then this one arose. I do live the simplicity line. That does sound like a great deal on the plow. I may look into the Rops canopy also. I haven't looked at the hitch much the PTO is a nice feature as well

Nice tractor, good find, you will like the 4WD. I bought mine new in '06 to take over grass cutting duty from the Duratrac , and last summer finally saved the dough to get the FEL, (now Z-turn cuts grass) which is handy little unit.Mine has the liquid cooled Kawa. Good luck with it.( second best unit out of Port Washington ) Are you keeping your other Legacy XL ? ps dealer up near Edinboro had a like new used blade and frame I looked at for mine last year,I'll check to see if he's still got it & what he wants for it.

Sold the other two Legacy's. If you don't mind checking on the blade that will be great.
