Re: Cheapest/easy maintenance/parts availability riding mower
If I was buying new, I'd try one of the $1200 MTD/Troy Bilt 18hp 42" riders w/ stacked/sheaved pulley to change speed. @TobyU
likes them and can give more details.
You can find them really cheap on CL or FB Markettplace that need minor maintenance.
