Have you guys seen this comparison? There was 9 different tractors involved. This is my concern. They put the regent 17 hp against some v-twins. This was obviosly a jd comparison. The simplicity with a mulching deck was put against a number of the rest with side discharge decks. If you are shooting apples for apples, think again. I am not saying we were cheated, but I do beleive that it was not a fair comparison. I suppose if you drifted across your neighborhood for an hour or two, you might run into the mulching series of riders. But, I do not think it is appropriate to say that these riders can be compared. I think that the series of jd they compared is almost equal to the broadmoor series. I say almost because the lower series of jd is no more than a murray. Apples for apples, simplicity is hands down the winner!

      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!😁
