I’m looking for a new lawn tractor to replace my 19 year old John Deere LT 150. I am looking at the Simplicity Regent with either the 38” or 42” deck, and the John Deere S240 with the 42” deck. Simplicity has Briggs engine and JD has a Kawasaki. Both are twin cylinders. Which is the better machine for reliability and longevity. I take super care of my machines and want to go with the one that will be most trouble free and that performs the best. Your opinions would be greatly appreciated.
