Simplicty Regent 18/38 2007 Deck Question
I have a Simplicity regent model 2695072 with a 38in deck. I bought it used for $200 last week but it had a big gash in the back part of the deck, about 18in long x 1in wide. It cuts as it should but I just don't feel comfortable with a big long hole in the deck.
I think it's still a pretty good deal. I bought and sold a Simplicity prestige last year and have been kicking myself since for selling it. So when this came up st that price, I jumped on it.
My question is, since this regent has a "free floating" deck, could i switch it with another simplicity deck that is not free floating from the same era so to speak? There are a few for sale in my area, MN that have the hanging brackets on the deck itself so just curious.
