Probably the best choice to go thru as well for warranty stuff. I just got back from Tractor Supply and saw one like yours...was it a 42" cut?

Same price, 1699.00

I hope you are right. I hated to see my John Deere go down, but not forkin over 3+K on a new one. I think that's what their 42" cuts run. Although my neighbor of umpteen years goes thru another riding lawnmower ever time I turn around. Hope that's not the case getting away from JD. At least it ran all those years, and was never needed shopwork in all that time.

46 inch is what I have. My old 42" JD was falling apart. It was about 12-14 years old.

You got a wider cut for the same amount. Sounds like you got a better deal thru HD.

I'd be interested to know how many years you can get even with JD now, since you got half the years I did. Just not makin em like they used to...I think I said that when I bought my old one! Well, good luck. I may be joining you! Would love to hear how it's going. Now that summer's hit...won't need to mow again for a while!

Well, you will definitely know what you've got going at that rate!

You must not live where they restrict water.

Or..you use it commercially?

It's just my home. I have 20,000 sqft of lawn. No water restrictions here. Having a good season so far with lots of rain so I haven't had to water too much. The cub cuts so well I don't even have a mulch plug on it.
