Lawn tractor Horse-power!
I was given a Simplicity lawn tractor, a Broadmoor 14 h.p. model. It has the extra blower on the side and a grass catcher in back The engine was blown, so i had a 12 h.p. briggs here which i installed. I can not see any appreciable difference in operation, even with 2 less h.p.!
I had driven the machine once when my neighbor owned it. And later, it came to me when the engine went BANG!
It still mows and fills the grass bagger, and it makes me wonder about all the palaver about Horse-power. I realise 2 hp isn't a big difference.
I was at Home Despot one day about a month ago. They had all of their different makes and models sitting out front with the prices clearly marked, as well as the discounts. I couldn't see much difference in the models, except the higher priced one had 2 more h.p.! Otherwise they all looked the same!
