Tractor Name Trivia

Recommended Posts

1978Simplicity7016H

The name “Regent” in the means of a Simplicity model has been used since the late 70s. I have a 1979 Regent numbered 4111, but doesn't run right now. But if you are asking about the newer non-numbered Regents. Well, Simplicity made a 4000-based tractor in the late 80s? Early 90s. It basically looked like an all-orange 4212 with a more modern style hood. The hood resembled the Broadmoor line of that time.

And I thought this was going to be difficult; shows you how little I know about small frame Simplicities!From a 1978 (approx., not dated) Catalog I just got:

Having both a '88 and a '90 4212G, oft times known as a "LT", only capable of front mounted accessories, until it evolved into the

5000 and 6200 series, where a rear PTO showed up.

It was limited by its gross weight, misplaced center of gravity, and lack of a true differential.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
