So, a lot of the times I either have to go for a trial and error method to see if the mower fits the job at hand or search for a machine that is versatile enough to meet a wide range of needs.
A mower that can fit a variety of user needs is a rarity in itself. However, if you’re looking for one such machine, then I have just the model for you today.
The Regent Lawn Mower from Simplicity is as consistent in its performance as it’s versatile. It comes with a category of fantastic features, which I am confident will suit all your lawn care desires.
Simplicity Regent Lawn Tractor Consumer Reviews 2019: What makes it such an amazing buy?
My brother has been using the Simplicity Regent Lawn Mower for months now. And he told me that out of all the garden trimming machines that he has used over the years, the Simplicity gave him the best all-round grass cutting consistency and performance.
Even though the compact build and design of the mower made me have my reservations at first, but after trying it out for myself, I must say that my brother wasn’t exaggerating about the mower’s performance at all.
The Simplicity Regent Lawn Mower has become one of my favorites ever since, and today I will tell you a little about why that was the case.
Breezes through any type of lawn
The Regent Lawn Mower comes with something which Simplicity refers to as the “Free Floating Mower Deck”. It’s their trademarked company technology which designs the fabricated cutting deck of the mower in such a way that allows the machine to effortlessly follow the contours of any lawn structure and provide a scalp free cut.
The Regent Lawn Mower comes with a very powerful Briggs and Stratton Professional Series Engine. And it’s a trend for a lot of the powerful mowers to scalp the lawn surface and rip up the turf under certain conditions.
The “Free Floating Mower Deck Design” avoids this and will keep your lawn protected no matter how fast you’re going, or how rough and undulating the surface is.
Convenience and versatility
The professional grade Briggs and Stratton engine comes with a single-switch, easy-start feature which I find to be rather convenient. It can get quite annoying when you have to constantly yank on a chain to get a mower started, and fortunately enough the Simplicity does away with that process altogether.
The mower has an amazingly smooth and quiet operation as well. It has a unique rear suspension design that offers 25% less impact felt than a standard mower model. It improves the rider’s comfort levels significantly and allows one to effortlessly tread over extremely bumpy terrain without a hitch.
The Regent Lawn Mower will also allow you to adjust the cutting height easily with just the press of a button. This feature allowed me to choose from 1.5 to 4 inches in cutting increments and helped me to customize the lawn in whichever way I wanted.
This cutting versatility is precisely what makes the Regent Lawn Mower perfect for both professional and domestic users.
As one of the latest models in the Simplicity line-up, the Regent Lawn Mower comes equipped with a new and improved 15” contoured seat which provides added comfort and deck seat stability.
And along with the stylish LED headlights, the mower allows me to work on the lawn for hours on end without tiring out and even work well into the night. The lights come extremely handy when I need to trim under low light conditions or even after dark.
The headlights are a must have for all lawn care professionals in my books and can be extremely reliable on rocky and bumpy terrain in low light conditions.
Where does the Simplicity Regent Lawn Mower fail to impress?
When it comes to the flaws, the Simplicity Regent Lawn Mower falls short of expectations when it comes to:
For me, the Simplicity Regent Lawn Mower has some issues when it comes to durability. After about 200 hours of use, the brushings of both the front wheels started to show signs of wear, and I needed to replace them. And the bracket of the deck snapped right after, and I needed to replace that as well.
Bad Fuel Efficiency
Fuel efficiency is not as good as I would have liked, and I needed to periodically fill the tank on long trimming jobs.
Questions I get asked frequently
How many blades are there in the mower?
the Regent Lawn Mower comes with a 3 blade cutting system which allows the mower to go through the toughest of vegetation, even Florida grass.
Does the mower have a stamped or fabricated deck?
The Simplicity comes with a fabricated deck, which means that it’s heavier than the stamped deck and is specifically equipped for heavy-duty use because of the squared edges.
- The unique deck system helps the mower travel over all types of lawns
- Powerful engine cut through the thickest of vegetation
- Comfortable and vibration free deck seat
- LED headlights allow trimming in low light conditions
- Build not as durable as I would have liked
- Consumes a lot of fuel when in use
If you’re looking for a powerful yet versatile lawn mower that can easily tread over the rough and bumpy terrain of your garden, then the Simplicity Regent might just be what you’re searching for. It’s exceedingly comfortable and easy to use and fits pros and amateurs alike.
I hope you enjoyed my review today.
