    My mom just purchased one from Sears that was comparable and even rated very well in consumers reports for less money.

    How much is that JD? Kubota makes some pretty cool ones.

    I've been very happy with Craftsman mowers. I got one with a Kholer engine.

    The right mower also depends on your application. If you are mowing a lot of manicured grass, look into a zturn.

    $2079.00 CAN - not a bad price for a JD

    :D

    Sounds like a deal to me. What engine is in it? Is it hydrostatic drive?

    As far as the cutting deck is concerned I much more prefer 2 big blades over 3 smaller.

    I just bought a Cub Cadet 1045 w/ 46" deck and hydrostatic transmission and am very happy with it. I did a bunch of research on different models before I bought and all the reviews I read as well as the quality of the mower lead me to the Cub Cadet. I paid $1699 at my local TSC.

    Stay away from kubota...

    The JD's with Kawasaki engines rock, the B&S engines are okay, but just don't last... The older cast iron Kolhors are amazing, gutless as heck but tanks... kind of like Landcruisers :)

    I've herd good things about huskavarna and a few other cheaper brands....

    to me if you can find an older JD that doesn't use oil and you keep up on the little maintance it will last!!!! a long long time....

    there were years I know my dad didn't change the oil in our 210 cast iron kohlor (I think almost half a decade the one time) it has cost use 200 bucks in 20 years of owning it... one reman'd starter, a battery (actually two but one was out of a wreck car) oil for engine and axle... and a few belts.... I've never even looked at the points and the thing was built in early to mid 70's... I can't say enough for the old girl....

    A good buddy of my dads has a Kubota that cost over 13000 CDN and has been in and out of the shop since new 2 years ago, with everything from replace hydrostatic to wheels falling off... it's a crazy liquid cooled engine... after talking to him I wouldn't touch one with a 10 foot pole...

    cheers
