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.

The simple answer (without really knowing one way or the other) is no.

When you look at various decks, the list the tractor models they fit. It's not just the connection and lift points, the belts have to match at the correct length, angle of engagement, tension, etc. The floating deck is a very different deck that a deck designed to be pulled.

Based on what little you paid, if I were you, I would consider either buying a shell and swap over the parts, or look into having a local welding shop weld a piece of sheet steel over the cutout.

Appreciate the response! I think the weld option you suggested would probably be best.
