Used Regent

Recommended Posts

JeffN
I am considering buying a used Regent. It is a 14HP Hydro with the Briggs Vanguard engine. The mfg. # is 1692354. Could anyone tell me approx. what year it is and also anything to look for. This would be my second Simplicity and I am still a newbie. Also, what would a fair price for this tractor be roughly. Any assistance you guys could give would be appreciated. Thanks again.

I bought a used Regent 14 Gear with the 14HP Kohler engine in it. The year of mine is 1997 and it was in mint condition. I paid $899.00 or 799.00 can't remember(it was in March though). Once the dealer finally did the dealer prep and gave it the once over, it has been GREAT and I would highly recommend getting one. I love the curves ant the 14" turning radius. It almost handles like a ZTR machine.

Yes I did, thank you for asking. I was able to convince them that the tractor never had the "dealer service" that they said is given to all used tractors before going out the door. After they rebuilt the carb, changed the oil and filters,and adjusted the cutting deck, it runs like a top. No smoke, vibrations, etc. I have been using it at least 4 hours a week for stuff like cutting the grass, de-clumping and smoothing out the garden, spreading fertilizer, rolling the moles, and driving the kids around the yard. We bought one of those steerable wagon/carts that Lowes had that connects to my pin hitch. Instant hay ride for a happy 4 and 2 year old. So far, so good.

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
